Chronic joint pain is a difficult reality for millions of Americans. Joints form the connections between bones, providing support and helping you move. Any damage to the joints can interfere with your movement, which can cause a lot of pain.
Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries. As you get older, painful joints become increasingly more common.
Joint pain can range from mildly irritating to debilitating. It may go away after a few weeks (acute), or last for several weeks or months (chronic). Even short-term pain and swelling in the joints can affect your quality of life.
While conventional medicine looks to medication and surgery to relieve joint pain, at Forum Health, our integrative medicine physicians focus on the root cause. Our cutting-edge, science-backed therapies, including platelet-rich plasma and cellular therapy, can help reduce inflammation and pain, healing your joints and providing long-lasting relief.
