Find Relief From Joint Pain at New Jersey Joints in Freehold, NJ
Joint pain is very common and can arise following a breakdown of any of a joint’s numerous components, including the cartilage, bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Most often, however, the orthopedic specialists and New Jersey Joints, in Freehold, NJ, use the general term “joint pain” to refer to arthritis, a condition that can cause degenerative changes that lead to painful joint inflammation and stiffness.
Rarely an emergency, joint pain can sometimes be managed with a combination of rest, ice packs, compression, and elevation (“RICE”). The level of discomfort can vary widely, ranging in intensity from mild, with soreness occurring only after certain activities, to severe, causing excruciating pain with even very limited movement. At New Jersey Joints, we encourage individuals to see a physician at our orthopedic clinic in Freehold if they experience intense pain or notice any of the following symptoms around a joint:
In most cases, the medical professionals at New Jersey Joints begin joint pain treatment with nonsurgical therapies like exercise, bracing, hyaluronic acid injections, and medications, especially if we trace the cause to a strain or contusion. On the other hand, a more serious condition, such as a ligament tear or cartilage damage, may need to be addressed with an arthroscopic procedure or, in very severe cases, total joint replacement surgery. To help our patients recover fully and return to the activities they enjoy, our experienced team of fellowship-trained surgeons and in-house physical therapists offers a full range of the latest conservative and surgical treatments.
