Joint Pain Q & A

What causes joint pain?

Joint pain is extremely common. In fact, about one-third of American adults report having recently experienced joint pain. This pain can be caused by inflammation in the joint itself or problems with the cartilage, ligaments, tendons, muscles, or bones. It can affect any joint on your body, including your:

  • Knees
  • Elbows
  • Shoulders
  • Ankles
  • Hips
  • Wrists
  • Fingers

Your joints can start causing you pain because of an injury, disease, or wear and tear. Some of the health conditions that can cause pain in your joints include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gout
  • Muscle or tendon sprains
  • Tendinitis
  • Lupus
  • Lyme disease

In short, there are a number of health conditions that can impact virtually any joint in your body. If you’re suffering from joint pain and are seeking relief, contact Myofascial Pain Specialists, and a medical professional with experience in joint issues can diagnose will help treat your pain.

How is joint pain treated?

To manage your pain, the joint care experts at Myofascial Pain Specialists will work with you to develop a pain management program. Using their highly effective multimodal techniques, they can help treat the cause of your joint pain and improve your quality of life.

Some of the pain management techniques may include pain gels, nutritional recommendations — certain foods can trigger inflammation of the joints — and safe, effective pain-relieving injections.

What kind of joint pain injections do you offer?

At Myofascial Pain Specialists, you’ll find two options for nonsteroidal pain injections. Steroid-based injections come with a number of health risks and can lead to the breakdown of tissues or bone at the injection site. Instead, Myofascial Pain Specialists offers Sarapin and Toradol injections.

Sarapin injections

Sarapin has been used for more than 70 years as a safe, highly effective injectable pain treatment. It is completely natural — derived from the pitcher plant — and its primary side effect is the sensation of warmth at the injection site.

Toradol injections

Toradol is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug. As an extremely powerful painkiller, it rivals the effectiveness of opioids, but without any of the health risks. Because it is not an opioid, it’s not addictive.
