Painful Joints – Stop Knee and Shoulder Pain and Live Pain-Free
Stiff or sore, throbbing or grating, joint pain is common in both the shoulders and knees. Shoulder or knee pain may feel like discomfort, pain, or inflammation and mild or severe. Joint pain affects the shoulder or knee joint’s function but can limit your ability to complete even basic tasks.
Many different conditions can lead to shoulder pain and knee pain, from ACL/MCL injury, ligament/rotator cuff injury, degenerative joint disease, or post or failed surgery back pain. If knee or shoulder pain is interfering with normal daily life activities, Accelerated Interventional Orthopedics can help with pain management and non-operative solutions.
The shoulder is a complex joint responsible for a wide range of motion, everything from throwing a ball to scratching your back. Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your body. Your shoulder joint is where three bones meet, your upper-arm bones (humerus), shoulder blades (scapula), and the collarbone (clavicle). These bones are held in place by muscles and tendons that work together, allowing you to raise and move your arm. The combination of this mobility and joint complexity is that your shoulder is susceptible to many conditions that can cause pain.
The most common cause of shoulder pain is a rotator cuff injury. Rotator cuff injuries can happen through injury and degeneration. A rotator cuff tear occurs when one or more of the rotator cuff detaches tendons detach from the humerus, and these tears can be partial or complete. The most common symptoms of a rotator cuff injury are pain, weakness, and stiffness.
Whether it’s a rotator cuff strain or injury, degenerative joint disease, or general shoulder pain, it’s essential to take action sooner rather than later to avoid the problem, and pain, becoming worse. If you have difficulty reaching behind your back or above your head, weakness down the arm, disturbed sleep, or a dull ache deep in the shoulder, it’s time to schedule a consultation with Accelerated Interventional Orthopedics.
Walking, bending, standing, and lifting all take a toll. The knees bear a great deal of stress from our everyday activities, which makes them another vulnerable joint. Most often associated with general wear and tear, knee pain is a common complaint among adults. Athletes who run, jump, and pivot take are even more likely to experience knee pain and discomfort. While overusing your knees can cause knee pain, it can also be triggered suddenly by an injury that results in a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. Symptoms of knee pain often include:
- Inability to fully straighten the knee
- Popping or crunching noises
Everyone has knee pain from time to time. But if you’re having persistent symptoms of knee pain, cannot bear weight, intense pain, or sudden swelling, it’s time to schedule a consultation. At Accelerated Interventional Orthopedics, we have several treatments that help to bring relief, depending on the specific cause of your knee pain.
