Joint Pain Q & A

What causes joint pain?

Age, repetitive motion, or disease can lead to daily joint pain and loss of mobility. Arthritis is one of the main causes of joint pain. It progresses slowly and may affect your wrists and hands, hips, knees, and other joints. Other causes of joint pain include:

  • Bursitis (joint inflammation)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • Tendonitis
  • Lyme disease
  • Gout
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Bone cancers or tumors
  • Infections
  • Injuries

If you experience joint pain that worsens with activity or is constant, it’s important to get an accurate diagnosis so Dr. Adepitan can prescribe the most effective combination of therapies to treat the underlying cause of your pain and promote long-term healing.

What are the common symptoms of joint pain?

Chronic joint pain may include swelling or redness around the affected joint or even loss of mobility. If your joints are arthritic, you may have difficulty performing everyday tasks like buttoning your clothes or opening jars. If left untreated, your joint may appear deformed, as is common with arthritis.

Additional joint pain symptoms include joint stiffness, loss of strength, and locking of the affected joints. Your pain may affect your quality of life, so Dr. Adepitan takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating your pain. Even if your condition isn’t totally curable, you can minimize pain and reduce its daily interruption.

How do you treat joint pain?

If your joint pain is the result of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, nothing will eliminate your pain completely, but Dr. Adepitan works with you to effectively manage your pain, including:

  • Physical therapy to keep joints mobile and flexible
  • Weight loss to ease pressure on joints
  • Medications to reduce inflammation and pain
  • Massage therapy
  • Joint Injections
  • PRP and Stem Cell Therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Lifestyle changes to help minimize symptom flare-ups

Dr. Adepitan also specializes in regenerative medicine, such as stem cell injections and platelet-rich plasma therapies, which are often helpful in relieving joint pain. These procedures are minimally invasive and help to restore proper function and minimize the effects of degenerative conditions.

Dr. Adepitan seeks to find the best combination of conventional and alternative medicine, and consults with other health care specialists when necessary to provide the most comprehensive, personalized treatment plan for your particular joint condition.
