Joint Pain Treatment
Have you been suffering from a condition that has limited your mobility and has caused you pain? If so, the problem is most likely somewhere in your joints. This is caused by an injury or inflammation to the tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bones in and around the joints.
These conditions are typically associated with severe pain because they affect the area that joins bones together. The most common areas that experience this pain are the knee, shoulder, hip, and ankle. As you age, joint pain becomes more common which is why seeking out treatment is important. Rather than allow joint pain to ruin your life, at Progressive Therapy Center, we can help your body fight back so you can continue to your normal life as best you can. There are several reasons why you may be experiencing joint pain.
Arthritis: This is a condition that causes the joints to become inflamed. There are two types of arthritis: rheumatoid (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA). OA is the more common form of arthritis and is likely to appear as you age and due to obesity. RA is an autoimmune disorder that causes the body to attack the soft tissue in your joints. Our physicians can help determine if you have arthritis and how best to treat you.
Infection: It is also possible for bacteria to come into contact with the joints and become an infection. This infection can cause cartilage deterioration and even bone damage. It is important that your physician catches this in its early stages.
The joints are extremely important to our bodies and if they are in pain, it can cause plenty of intense pain. Our physicians and therapists at Progressive Therapy Center can assist you by providing expert care, treatments, and therapies to help you regain your full range of motion and manage the pain you are feeling.
Benefits of Physical Therapy
One of the most important ways to combat injuries and inflammation in the body is with physical therapy. By using massages, heat, and exercise to treat your injuries you may not need to undergo surgery or use drugs and medicines to get better. There many other benefits when it comes to physical therapy including:
Increased mobility: If you are having trouble moving one or more of your joints, or if you are having trouble standing, the stretching and strengthening exercises that our therapists will show you can help.
Injury prevention: By correctly warming up and recovering after sports or exercise, you can drastically decrease your chances of an injury.
Disease and condition management: If you have diabetes, then physical therapy can assist in controlling blood sugar. The different strengthening and breathing exercises can also help those with pulmonary issues.
Fall preventions: As you become older, your balances decreases and falls are a real and dangerous possibility. There are physical therapy exercises that can improve balance and even provide you with devices that will allow you to walk safer, reducing the possibility of having a dangerous fall.
