26 Jun Conditions That Cause Joint Pain
There are well over 100 conditions that can cause joint pain, and Dr. Nikesh Seth specializes in finding the cause of the pain while effectively treating the symptoms. At Integrated Pain Consultants, a wide range of treatments is available for joint pain, from joint injections to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. If you have joint pain, it’s critical to get a correct diagnosis that enables the proper treatment to be prescribed.
Some of the most common causes of joint pain include:
There are also over 100 types of arthritis, and all-cause inflammation in the joints. Someone can suffer from arthritis in one or multiple joints, and there are different causes and recommended treatments for every type of arthritis. This condition usually progresses over time, but in some cases, it can appear suddenly.
- Sprains and strains
A sprain occurs when connective tissue, such as a ligament, is stretched or torn. Strains are caused by muscles and tendons tearing. Both can cause joint pain, and although sprains and strains are temporary, they can be debilitating. Connective tissue such as ligaments and tendons don’t heal well on their own, but pain management options can reduce pain while encouraging faster healing.
Usually a chronic disorder, fibromyalgia is linked to widespread pain in the bones and muscles. It is usually coupled with fatigue, and fibromyalgia can be difficult to diagnose because symptoms are subjective. However, Dr. Seth regularly treats fibromyalgia patients, and it is important to remember that help and options are always available.
The bursae are sacs filled with fluid and found near joints. They are close to tendons, and when they are inflamed they can cause what seems to be joint pain. There are many types of bursitis, but most patients experience this after they overuse a joint, such as when playing tennis or golf. Reducing the inflammation can require trying out different treatments, but finding the right solution can help those prone to bursitis find a long-term solution to what is often recurring pain.
