Joint Pain Q & A

What causes joint pain?

Your body’s joints are delicate structures that enable your limbs to move freely and easily. Joints are under constant stress just from daily movements like walking, sitting, exercising, or even using your phone or computer.

Joint pain can develop for numerous different reasons. These may include:

  • An injury or accident that stresses the joint
  • Arthritis
  • An autoimmune condition

You might also experience joint pain if you’re constantly overusing one part of your body with repetitive motions.

What are the symptoms of joint pain?

You may experience joint pain in the fingers, toes, knees, ankles, shoulders, and arms.

Joint pain can show up differently from one person to the next, but it usually feels achy, tender, or stiff. You might also notice slight changes in the color of your skin or that temperature changes influence the severity of the pain.

How is joint pain treated?

The team at Zanesville Medical Center can recommend a customized, individual treatment plan for your joint pain. That starts with a comprehensive physical evaluation and a review of your medical records.

To determine the cause of your joint pain, your physician might take an X-ray or ultrasound of the affected area. Your treatment plan might include several different therapies, such as:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Physical therapy exercises
  • Injections or medications to help support joint health

At home, you can further speed up healing by limiting your movement and avoiding weight-bearing exercises. It’s important to give your joints time to heal so you don’t injure them further.

Throughout your treatment, your physician makes adjustments based on your needs. That enables you to avoid costly, painful surgery and to recover full mobility in your body.

What are the benefits of treating joint pain?

With a team of board-certified medical doctors, nurse practitioners, licensed physical therapists, chiropractors, and massage therapists, Zanesville Medical Center gives patients solutions for joint pain that work.

Left untreated, joint pain can get worse and eventually damage the surrounding tissue and cartilage. It can even lead to complications that might later require surgery.

Treating joint pain with a combination of non-surgical approaches allows you to heal with more natural methods. This ensures that, as you age, you can still participate in all of your favorite activities and live life to the fullest.
