Joint pain can be discomfort, pain or inflammation arising from any part of a joint — including cartilage, bone, ligaments, tendons or muscles. Most commonly, however, joint pain refers to arthritis or arthralgia, which is inflammation or pain from within the joint itself.Joint pain can be mild, causing soreness only after certain activities, or it can be severe, making even limited movement, particularly bearing weight, extremely painful.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones wears down over time.
Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine.
Osteoarthritis symptoms can usually be managed, although the damage to joints can't be reversed. Staying active, maintaining a healthy weight and some treatments might slow progression of the disease and help improve pain and joint function. Management
Lower back pain is a common cause due to the sedentary life style and a stressed working environment for both youngsters and old age people. Low back pain can also be the result of certain diseases, such as cancer of the spinal cord, a ruptured or herniated disc, sciatica, arthritis, kidney infections, or infections of the spine.
See the Physiotherapist or Spine Specialist at PROKINESIA at DLF Phase II GURGAON if you are experiencing pain that shoots down into your leg — especially all the way to the bottom of your leg. This could indicate something more serious than a strained muscle, such as a damaged disk in your back or a compression at the nerve root which is causing Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the affected arm or leg.
As the pain improves the physical therapist may introduce some flexibility and strengthening exercises for the back and abdominal muscles. Our therapist will teach few techniques for improving posture so that such nature of pain doesn't relapse in future.
Pain in or around the knee that may indicate a condition affecting the knee joint itself or the soft tissue around the knee. Knee pain can have causes that aren't due to underlying disease. Examples include heavy physical activity, lack of use, injuries such as sprains or strains, sitting in a constrained area or sitting on knees for a prolonged period.
Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) is good for knee pain caused by a minor injury or an arthritis flare. If the pain and swelling doesn't subside then consult our knee physiotherapist or orthopaedic for further diagnosis and treatment. Once the pain is reduced then our therapist will teach you certain strengthening exercises which you have to continue at home as advised.
Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about the underlying cause.
Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint.
Hip pain can sometimes be caused by diseases and conditions in other areas of your body, such as your lower back. This type of pain is called referred pain.
Your shoulder is made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle). It may lead to increasing problems with instability or impingement of the soft tissue or bony structures in your shoulder, resulting in pain. You may feel pain only when you move your shoulder, or all of the time. The pain may be temporary or it may continue and require medical diagnosis and treatment.
Treatment generally involves rest, altering your activities, and physical therapy to help you improve shoulder strength and flexibility. Common sense solutions such as avoiding overexertion or overdoing activities in which you normally do not participate can help to prevent shoulder pain.
Cervical pain is the pain caused due to cervical spondylolysis or osteoarthritis. This condition involves changes in the bones, disc or joints that are connected to the neck. The major cervical pain reasons are due to the wear and tear of the cartilages and bones, and thus are often found in ageing people.
When neck pain is mild or moderate, it is usually possible to treat the symptoms by applying few electrical modalities and manual therapy.
