Our specialists can reduce or alleviate joint pain.
Causes & Symptoms
Joints pain is extremely common and can affect any part of your body: knees, shoulders, hips and ankles. Damage to joints from injury or disease can interfere with normal movement and create mild to severe pain. Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including:
- Aging: painful joints become increasingly common as we age.
- Arthritis: pain, stiffness and inflammation of the joints. There are over 100 types of arthritis and the severity of symptoms depends on the specific condition.
- Bursitis: swelling and pain in the elbow, shoulder or hip.
- Injury: pain from strains, sprains and other injuries can last a couple of weeks to several months; if left untreated damage to joints from injury can worsen over time.
How PRI Can Help
PRI’s experienced, certified practitioners will first diagnose the source of your pain and prescribe a plan to reduce pain and inflammation, and preserve joint function.
Depending on diagnosis, treatment options may include:
Chiropractic: manipulating the joints to improve quality of motion and preserve joint function.
Physical Therapy: passive (hot/cold therapy) and active (exercise) therapy to relieve pain, strengthen the muscles around the joint and improve range of motion.
Acoustic Wave Therapy: pain and drug free alternative to surgery; high intensity waves break down damaged tissue and stimulate production of healthy tissue; highly effective in relieving pain, reversing inflammation and improving mobility.
Massage: manipulating the body’s soft tissue to relieve joint pain.
Custom Orthotics and Orthopedic Shoes: reduce pain; increase stability in weak foot and ankle joints, and improve range of motion.
