Joint Pain Q & A

Why do I have joint pain?

Joint pain may start with mild discomfort, but if it’s not treated, it can progress to stiff, painful joints that are hard to move or can’t bear weight. Some of the most common causes of joint pain include:

  • Osteoarthritis (degraded cartilage)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation)
  • Joint dislocation
  • Bursitis (inflamed bursa sacs)
  • Sprains (torn ligaments)
  • Tendonitis (inflamed tendons)
  • Lyme disease
  • Fractures

While you may think that joint pain is a normal part of aging or of being an athlete, you shouldn’t have to put up with pain or stiffness and shouldn’t ignore it, either. Joint pain can be healed so your full range of motion and quality of life is restored.

How does a doctor treat joint pain?

The team at TruWell Health concentrates on the nonsurgical repair of joint pain. Some therapies they offer include:

Physical therapy

Physical therapy involves strengthening and stretching your surrounding muscles, ligaments, and tendons to alleviate pressure on your joints.  

IV therapy

Your provider may recommend IV therapy to hydrate the joints and surrounding tissues, subdue inflammation, and relieve pain.

Advanced Arthritis Relief Protocol

The Advanced Arthritis Relief Protocol™ (AARP) is a multi-disciplinary treatment approach that combines fluoroscopically guided hyaluronic acid injections and physical therapy with an off-loading brace and home exercise machine. The treatment provides relief from joint pain caused by osteoarthritis.

What are cutting-edge treatments for joint pain?

TruWell Health always recommends the least invasive, most supportive therapies to heal your injuries and pain as quickly as possible. If you have joint pain that hasn’t responded to other types of therapies, they may recommend: 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

The PRP is prepared from a small amount of blood that our provider withdraws from your arm. When concentrated and injected into injured tissue, PRP accelerates healing and helps your body grow new tissue.

Stem cell therapy

Your provider injects donated stem cells from your own hip bone marrow into the site of injury. Stem cells help your tissues regenerate themselves, so you can repair fractures, regrow damaged cartilage, and create healthy, new nerves.
