Joint Pain Q & A

What causes joint pain?

Joint pain can develop from many causes. Some common reasons you might have joint pain are:

Arthritis

Osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other types of arthritis cause inflammation that can lead to joint pain.

Trauma

Sprain, strains, disc degeneration in the spine or sports injuries can lead to long-term pain in the joints.

Other chronic conditions

Health conditions like Lyme disease, leukemia, lupus, or hypothyroidism can also lead to changes in the body that cause joint pain.

What are the symptoms of joint pain?

The symptoms of joint pain can vary, depending on the part of your body that’s affected. It’s common to experience:

  • Stiffness and mobility issues
  • Aching or burning pain
  • Pain after inactivity
  • Swelling and inflammation

While joint pain sometimes goes away on its own, contact the office if you have chronic joint pain or pain that isn’t responding to other treatments.

What is the treatment for joint pain?

There are many treatment options for joint pain that don’t have to include pain medication or surgery. At Superior Physical Medicine, your care might consist of:

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in high amounts in your body’s joint tissue and joint fluids. It acts as a lubricant and shock absorber inside the joint, enabling your knee to work properly. It is an effective pain relief option for patients with mild and moderate grade knee osteoarthritis.

PRP injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections use this strong component of your blood to help stimulate the healing of injured tissue. PRP injections can repair tendons, ligaments, joints, and muscles to relieve joint pain.

Trigger point

Trigger point injections contain anesthetic and may contain or corticosteroid ingredients. When delivered directly into a “trigger” point — or areas of muscle spasm — they can relieve pain and inflammation.


Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine helps the body create new cartilage cells in the injured area. It works by triggering the body’s healing response, which repairs damaged tissue, boosts the immune system, and fights inflammation. This treatment is often a permanent repair.

Chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments use gentle hands-on manipulation to align your body and naturally alleviate symptoms related to both chronic and acute musculoskeletal conditions. 

Which results can I expect?

Treatment for joint pain can deliver immediate results, especially trigger point injections. PRP injections and regenerative medicine may take several weeks or months to provide full results, but they are effective methods to heal the body from the inside out.
