What causes joint pain?

Joint pain might be the result of an injury, chronic condition, or disease, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Lupus
  • Gout
  • Bursitis
  • Viral infection
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Joint injuries
  • Auto Accidents

Post-traumatic arthritis causes stiffness and pain in affected joints after injury, like a car accident. Any damage to your joints can cause post-traumatic arthritis.

SoCal Medical Center provides compassionate care to adults with these injuries and conditions, as well as many others. They also specialize in integrative medicine and pain management services to support people in feeling better.

When should I see my doctor for joint pain?

Joint pain can cause continual or repeated symptoms that reduce physical activity and affect mood. Additional symptoms include:

  • Joint stiffness
  • Redness or tenderness
  • Limited ability to work

You should make an appointment with your doctor if you have joint pain or related symptoms that last three days or more or several episodes of symptoms within a month.

How do you treat joint pain?

SoCal Medical Center treats most types of joint pain, including back, shoulder, knee, and general joint pain.

The team might recommend any combination of the following treatments:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP injections contain concentrated growth factors extracted from your blood. Growth factors help your body repair injuries. Introducing extra quantities of these growth factors to a poorly healed injury triggers new healing that can help even when an injury has been around for years.

Knee On Trac

Knee On Trac is a decompression system that gently stretches the knee joint. It increases the space in your knee and the fluid volume in and around the joint, reducing stress and improving flexibility.

Additional services

You can also benefit from the team’s wide range of noninvasive treatments, including laser therapy, shockwave therapy, spinal decompression therapy, and other innovative approaches to chronic condition management.

The team takes a patient-centered approach to joint pain, pain management, and chronic disease management. They talk to you about your condition and its treatments. Then, they develop a care plan that suits your lifestyle and fulfills your health needs.
