Many people experience joint pain for a variety of reasons. Injuries, arthritis, gout, bursitis and other conditions can cause pain in any of the body’s joints. The knees are most commonly affected, but shoulders, hips, elbows, feet, ankles, and hands can also experience joint pain.

Types of Joint Pain Treatments
• Joint injections. Joint injections are commonly used because they provide immediate pain relief. The pain relief may last several months or even a year. Joint injections also reduce inflammation, making the pain go away. There are many joint injection options, but steroid injections are the most common.
• Viscosupplementation. This procedure is commonly used to treat osteoarthritis in the knee. It involves the use of hyaluronic injections in the knee joint. These injections lubricate the knee and reduce inflammation. As a result, patients experience pain relief
• Medication management. Based on your pain and medical conditions, medication management involves the creation of a plan that will relieve pain using various treatment methods. Medication management can also increase mobility and help you avoid surgery.
• Spinal cord stimulation. This is a type of wireless technology that can help relieve pain when surgery and other methods have not worked. Spinal cord stimulators block pain signals from reaching your brain. It works well for those suffering from pain in the back, neck, and nerves.
