Causes of Joint Pain

Before determining the best treatment plan, identifying potential joint pain causes can be extremely helpful. Identifying the cause not only helps in reducing pain now but ensuring it does not come back again and again.


General Shoulder Pain Relief Plan

The first step in recovering from shoulder joint pain is to identify what the condition is by getting a clear diagnosis. Many conditions can appear similar so getting good information from a qualified medical professional will help to set you out on the right path. When dealing with a joint or muscle problem, seek advice from an orthopedic surgeon and a physical therapist that specializes in orthopedics.

The second step to achieving shoulder pain relief is reducing inflammation. If you are experiencing joint or muscle pain, inflammation is involved. Generally, when pain is more consistent and more severe, there is a strong inflammatory component. The less frequent and the less intense the pain, the less inflammation is at work. For treating the inflammatory component, utilize ice therapy , anti-inflammatory medications, and in more significant cases cortisone injections.

The final component of muscle or joint pain treatment is the mechanical component. The mechanics of the joint include soft tissue flexibility, joint mobility, and muscle strength. The specific stretching and strengthening exercises vary based on the condition. Follow the right plan and you’ll get better…..follow the wrong plan and you’ll often get worse.
