Joint Inflammation - Causes and Treatments
Updated: Apr 26
In today’s busy life, some health issues go unnoticed until one day it hits us all of a sudden. This is often the case with joint inflammation problems. Joints connect two or more bones in our body and are surrounded by soft tissues. Lots of people in America are performing jobs that have a physical component to them. During physically intensive labor, we often overwork our joints, and there can be any number of reasons as to why there is inflammation. Some reasons for joint pain can be related to our physical activities but also to the food we eat, and for some, the functionality of our immune system.
Joint inflammation can be painful and very uncomfortable.
Some joint pain is long term, while other forms of joint pain will go away with time. The time frame can be a big factor in determining the type of inflammation and can help a provider to understand the situation better because the structure and function of our bodies are unique to each of us. Different areas might require different therapies and medicine for the proper healing process. There can be initial uncertainty about joint pain because some pain can be chronic, while some can occur from an acute injury or the tissues could be damaged.
Unlike common reasons such as dislocation, bone erosion, Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis, and gout, there can be other causes of the inflammation, such as weakening of the tissues and muscles, joint swelling, joint fusion ,and ligament damage. While these are some reasons related to joint inflammation they are not limited. For a better understanding of an individual case, one must visit their provider to learn more about their specific conditions and see what services can be provided. At Minneapolis Regenerative Medicine we offer a consult, exam, digital x rays, and report of findings to initially figure out what exactly the cause of your pain is.
We talked about the problems and the sources of joint pain, but the solutions can be different from case to case. It depends on how a person wants to be treated and what the best solution for their condition is. Some people go for massages when they have slight inflammation, some go for physical therapies to ease the pain, some who have been a part of an accident or have long term, intense pain go with surgery, and some patients take different sorts of pain relievers or ice down the joint for short term treatment.
Regenerative medicine can offer long term pain relief and is a fraction of the cost of undergoing surgery. It addresses the root cause of your joint pain and can actually regenerate the damaged tissues, ligaments, or cartilage instead of just masking the pain for a short time. It is a one time, non invasive procedure that has had no negative side effects in the patients that we have helped. We offer 3, 6 and 12 month follow up visits to evaluate your progress and offer advice based on how your body is reacting to the cell therapy.
