Caused by a variety of factors, including injury, inflammation, arthritis, overuse, or underlying medical conditions, pain in joints can affect any part of your body where bones meet, such as knees, shoulders, hips, or wrists.

Characterized by stiffness, swelling, redness, warmth, tenderness, and decreased range of motion in the affected key joint, common symptoms can range from mild discomfort to severe agony, depending on the underlying cause.

Diagnosis typically involves a physical examination, review of medical history, and possibly imaging tests such as X-rays, MRI scans, or blood tests, which help identify the cause and severity of the pain level.

Treatment, dependent on the underlying cause and severity of the pain, may include medication, physical therapy, lifestyle changes, injections, or in severe cases, surgery, with a tailored treatment plan provided by our experienced  physiotherapist at Olive Physio.

While certain exercises can strengthen the muscles around the affected joint, improve flexibility, and alleviate pain, it’s essential to consult with aour experienced physiotherapist before starting any exercise regimen to ensure safety and appropriateness for your condition.

Maintaining a healthy weight, practicing good posture, avoiding repetitive motions, and incorporating low-impact exercises into your routine can help reduce pain, alongside managing stress and getting adequate rest crucial for overall joint health.

Preventive measures include maintaining a balanced diet, staying hydrated, wearing supportive footwear, practicing proper body mechanics, and avoiding activities that strain your joints, with regular exercise and stretching to help keep joints healthy and flexible.

If pain persists in joints for more than a few weeks, worsens over time, or is accompanied by other concerning symptoms such as fever, chills, or unexplained weight loss, seeking medical attention promptly is essential, as early intervention can prevent further damage and improve outcomes.

In many cases, this pain can be effectively managed through our research based physical therapy solutions, medication, lifestyle modifications, and alternative therapies like acupuncture or chiropractic care, with surgery typically considered a last resort when other options have been exhausted.

Assessing your condition, developing a personalized treatment plan, providing hands-on therapy, teaching therapeutic exercises, and offering guidance on pain management techniques are roles our experienced physiotherapists at Olive Physio play, crucial for helping you regain mobility, reduce pain, and improve your quality of life.
