Joint Pain Relief Options

Your doctor in Fort Lauderdale, FL, can help you get relief from joint pain.

When you have joint pain, it can make moving and staying active difficult. Once you stop moving, your joints will become stiff, and you will lose flexibility, but what do you do if it hurts to move? The good news is, your doctor can help you get relief from joint pain. Dr. Darin Bush of Mobility Spine and Sports in Fort Lauderdale, FL, offers comprehensive medical care, including joint pain relief options.

Joint pain can be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Developing arthritis
  • Experiencing a joint injury
  • Weakened tendons, ligaments, or muscles
  • A past history of broken bones
  • Carrying extra weight, which causes joint stress

 You may experience joint pain suddenly, or it may develop gradually and increase with time. Along with pain, you may feel stiffness and swelling around a joint. The stiffness and swelling will reduce your flexibility and range of motion.

For mild joint pain, you can try a few home remedies like these:

  • Applying heat or ice to your painful joints
  • Taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatory and pain medication
  • Trying to maintain a healthy weight to prevent joint stress
  • Staying active to keep your joints moving and prevent stiffness
  • Replacing high-impact activities with low-impact activities like yoga or swimming

 For moderate to severe joint pain, it’s best to visit your doctor. Professional treatments for joint pain include:

  • Stretching and physical therapy to maintain flexibility
  • Rehabilitation therapy to help you maintain strength
  • Medications to relieve inflammation and pain
  • Platelet-rich plasma therapy and other biological treatments
  • Using assistive devices like splints or braces for added support
  • Osteopathic Manipulation to improve flexibility and mobility as well as joint and trigger point injections to calm inflammation.

Joint pain doesn’t have to make you miserable. Relief is just a phone call away. To learn more about the causes, symptoms, and pain relief options for joint pain, talk with an expert. Call Dr. Bush of Mobility Spine and Sports in Fort Lauderdale, FL, at (954) 414-7080 today!
