Joint Pain Q & A

What is joint pain?

Joint pain usually involves discomfort, pain, and inflammation. The pain can result from any part of your joint, including your cartilage, bone, ligaments, tendons, or even your muscles. However, joint pain most often refers to pain resulting from arthritis or arthralgia, which is inflammation or pain that occurs within your joint.

Other common causes of joint pain include:

  • Dislocation or broken bone
  • Bone cancer
  • Bursitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Gout
  • Lyme disease
  • Tendinitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sprains and strains

Dr. Bender can help diagnose the cause of your joint pain and together you can decide on the best plan to help treat your pain.

What are common symptoms of joint pain?

Joint pain symptoms vary depending on the severity of your condition. Sometimes, joint pain causes mild soreness after participating in certain activities, while other times you’ll feel severe pain that restricts your ability to move. 

Common symptoms and signs associated with joint pain include:

  • Redness and swelling
  • Tenderness and weakness
  • Warmth around the joint
  • Limping, stiffness, or a loss of motion

How is joint pain treated?

Dr. Bender offers a variety of innovative techniques to help alleviate your pain. First, he evaluates the specific cause of your pain to help determine the best course of treatment, and ultimately speed up your recovery. 

Treatment options Dr. Bender may utilize to treat your joint pain include:

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) can help provide relief from joint pain by disrupting the communication between your nerves carrying pain signals and your brain.

Multiwave Locked System Laser Therapy

Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser Therapy helps relieve pain and inflammation deep below your skin. This innovative technique features two different therapeutic wavelengths, one to help with inflammation and water retention and the other for pain relief.

PRP Injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections help heal your joints by using your body’s own blood platelets. Separated from the rest of the components in your blood, Dr. Bender then injects the platelets into your injured area to help regenerate healing cells to speed up your recovery time.

Dr. Bender works with you every step of the way to ensure you’re as pain free as possible. If you or a loved one needs help with chronic pain management, call Bender Orthopaedics & Spine Specialist today or schedule an appointment online today.
