Joint Pain Treatment at Monmouth Pain
Is it arthritis? This is the most common question or specialists at Monmouth Pain hear every day. We find that about half of the time it is and half the time it is not. With proper diagnosis through imaging (MRI, X-ray, or Ultrasound) coupled with an examination, we determine the nature of your joint pain. Once we determine the nature of your joint pain, a specialized treatment plan for you can be created.
Arthritis is a progressive condition characterized by painful swelling, inflammation, and stiffness of the body’s joints. Although arthritis has a number of different incarnations, the most common forms of arthritis include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Commonly affected joints include fingers and wrists (most often afflicted with rheumatoid arthritis) as well as the weight-bearing joints, including the spine, the knees, and hips (osteoarthritis).
For many patients, arthritis can be a debilitating illness.
Injection Therapy works to reduce pain. Once we reduce the pain, proper rehabilitation can work to manage and even fix the problem.
Physical Therapy is incorporated into arthritis pain management plans as part of an overall strategy to relieve pain while promoting normal movement and functioning. Not only does physical therapy assist with arthritis but it can also help gain strength and teach arthritis sufferers how to move while avoiding additional pain.
In addition to physical therapy, Monmouth Pain has a wide range of treatment options for arthritis, including pain management through medical care. Our medical director oversees all programs of care and may recommend and administer joint injections or epidural steroid injections. Additionally, our office provides chiropractic care and acupuncture, and Occupational Therapy.
