How Common Is Joint Pain?
Joint pain is extremely common. In one national surgery, about 1/3 of adults reported having joint pain within the past 30 days. Knee pain is the most common complaint, but many people struggle with shoulder and hip pain, as well as pain in other parts of the body.
Anytime you experience pain in places where your bones connect (the joints), you are experiencing joint pain. Joint pain can affect you from your jaws to your toes.
When you rate your pain as a 7 or higher on a 10-point scale (with 0 being no pain at all and 10 being as painful as can be), you are experiencing severe joint pain, and if you experience pain of any severity for most or all days within 3 months, you are experiencing persistent joint pain.
Royal Blue Medical Center can help with both severe and persistent joint pain.
What Causes Joint Pain?
Arthritis is one of the most common causes of joint pain. More than 15 million adults live with severe joint pain related to arthritis.
Other common causes of joint pain include:
- Certain infectious diseases (mumps, influenza, hepatitis)
- Breakdown of cartilage (chondromalacia)
- Sports injuries
- Strains and sprains
- Inflammation of the tendon (tendinitis)
- Joint or bone infections
- Overuse of a joint
All of the conditions above are treated in different ways. Once you find out where your joint pain is coming from, you may have multiple treatment options. Don’t overlook non-surgical, alternative medicine.
How Is Joint Pain Treated?
Depending on the severity, persistence, and source of your joint pain, you may have multiple options for treatment. As we mentioned before, many people are able to treat joint pain at home with stretching, topical pain relievers, and even getting massages.
That being said, other people need medical attention. In some cases, such as infections, your doctor may be able to eliminate or treat the source of your joint pain. In other cases, however, you will need a pain management plan, which could involve addictive medications, like opioids, or even invasive surgeries.
If you want to recover without prescription medication or surgery, Royal Blue may haveanother option for you.
