Why do I have joint pain? Your joint pain may be caused by one or more degenerative conditions or an acute injury that you’ve suffered recently or in the past. Ongoing joint pain is often caused by issues such as bursitis, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, or fibromyalgia. Damaged ligaments and tendons, sprains, strains, and fractures are other reasons you may have painful joints.
At our medical clinic, we will target the cause of your joint pain and use advanced medical treatments to ease your pain and improve your mobility, so you can restore your quality of life and finally get back to doing the activities you love.
What to do About Severe Joint Pain?
Severe joint pain should be addressed quickly to ensure you limit the damage and find relief as soon as possible. The key is to treat the underlying cause of the pain so you can experience true pain relief that lasts.
In conventional medicine, the idea is often to treat the symptom, which is pain, and ignore the cause of the pain altogether. While painkillers will offer temporary relief, they won’t fix whatever is causing the pain.
Every time the medication wears off, the pain will return, which can create a dangerous cycle. And the false sense of security you get when the pain is numbed may result in further damage to the affected joint. All-natural joint pain treatment focuses on the underlying cause of the pain, so your severe joint pain will no longer have a reason to exist.
PRP Injections for Achy Joints
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a natural pain relief treatment we use at our medical clinic. This non-surgical injection contain a concentrated amount of healing factors that can boost the recovery process. PRP injections start using your own blood to facilitate the healing process and ease your joint pain. After a small sample of your blood is taken, it is spun at high speed in a centrifuge, where the platelets are separated from the plasma. These concentrated platelets contain healing factors that form the basis of this effective non-surgical treatment.
