Joint Pain Q & A

What causes joint pain?

Joint pain most often occurs when an injury or disease affects the structures inside a joint. You can also have joint pain when the muscles and ligaments supporting the joint become inflamed or injured.

Every joint in your body is susceptible to pain because they perform repetitive movements. However, weight-bearing joints, including your knees, hips, and lower spine) are often the first to develop problems.

Your joint pain could arise from several conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Ligament injuries
  • Meniscus injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations

While fractures and dislocations occur suddenly and require medical care, other joint conditions typically develop gradually, with symptoms worsening as the underlying condition progresses. 

What symptoms accompany joint pain?

The conditions responsible for painful joints usually cause other symptoms, including:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Joint instability
  • Joint stiffness
  • Limited movement or loss of movement
  • Clicking or snapping sounds when using the joint

Seeking treatment as early as possible (when you realize the pain isn’t improving or when the pain limits joint movement) can help prevent ongoing joint damage. 

How is joint pain treated?

Effective and long-lasting relief for joint pain requires treatments that promote healing. The Zen Attitude Acupuncture team provides an array of integrative therapies to accomplish that goal.

In addition to acupuncture, their expertise includes naturopathic medicine, homeopathic injections, nutritional counseling, and vitamin injections. While each one takes a different approach, they all activate and support natural healing.

How do natural treatments ease joint pain? 

Your body has the remarkable ability to regenerate new tissues and heal injuries and diseases. Unfortunately, sometimes the healing process can’t function because of issues like a weak immune system, lack of nutrients, or a severe injury or disease that overwhelms the healing process.

All the treatments available at Zen Attitude Acupuncture give your body the support it needs to heal and fight pain. The treatments you receive improve circulation, trigger the release of substances that fight inflammation and ease pain, relieve stress, and restore whole-body health. 

Some therapies, like acupuncture and homeopathic and vitamin injections, directly target the painful joint and the underlying cause of your pain. Others support your overall health, strengthening your body and immune system to improve your joint health.
