Joint Pain Treatment
Joint pain is one of the most common pain complaints suffered by people in the United States. More than 40 million Americans suffer from some form of arthritis, making it the biggest single source of joint pain issues for people throughout the country.
Arthritis is a disease characterized by inflammation in joints and connective tissues. It can arise spontaneously in people of any age, although advancing age is one of the biggest risk factors. Chronic, severe pain can occur as a result of arthritis.
However, arthritis is not the only source of joint pain. Turtle Creek Medical Center helps people to manage joint pain from all sources, including things like accidents, athletic injuries and even repetitive stress. Each of these requires a different approach to pain treatment.
If you want joint pain treatment that works, you can count on Turtle Creek Medical Center to help.
Pain Treatment is Different When You See a Joint Pain Specialist
At Turtle Creek, our experts understand joint pain. We’ve helped patients from all across Texas to reduce or even eliminate pain. Our methods are precisely tailored to the individual’s needs and will complement any long-term therapies you are undergoing to treat the root issue.
Treating joint pain is unique because most forms of joint pain are caused, to some extent, by inflammation in the body. Reducing the pain means reducing inflammation. As a result, some common treatments effective for other forms of pain do not work as well or at all.
Targeted cryotherapy is one way to curb inflammation. Likewise, some forms of physical therapy and exercise can increase the functional strength of the target area. We also offer a wide range of specialized, alternative and holistic therapies that impact joint pain.
Joint pain may also stem from injury. The body’s natural healing process includes an increase in blood flow to the affected area, which helps in repairing the damage. In these cases, treatments such as massage and chiropractic may be helpful.
We understand that not all patients wish to pursue a pain management regimen using synthetic medications – or that current medications may make other forms of treatment ineffective. Our goal is to take a holistic approach to pain treatment that will help you achieve greater freedom from discomfort.
