In order to be relevant and productive in your daily services, you need to be in your proper health state to achieve your goals. Daily activities require a lot of body movements that involve bending, turning, standing, sitting, and much more. In all these body activities, the bones play a vital role to support the movements. The joints’ health dictates their ability to accommodate the movements. Any slight pain in the joints can result in an annoying discomfort that could hinder your effectiveness in production. At Elite Physical Medicine, we offer joint pain diagnosis and treatment as result of injuries, arthritis, or other conditions.

Joint Pain Concerns
At Elite Physician Medicine, we are more than grateful to help and answer your questions and concerns to ensure you live and perform your daily activities to the maximum.
Your body has a mass of flesh that is built on vertebral skeleton rigid tissues called bones. The human body has over 200 bones in total that work in conjunction with each other to aid in bending and moving. The bones connect to one another at a point we refer to as a joint.
To prevent rubbing of the bones against each other, there are connective tissues at the joint that cushion the bones. When joints bend, the tissues stretch. Joint inflammation or arthritis is a rheumatic condition that affects the connective tissues, surrounding tissues at the joint, and the joint itself. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis.
Other forms of arthritis conditions are lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, sprains, tendinitis, gout, bursitis, joint or bone infections, fibromyalgia, injuries, and osteoporosis, all causing joint pain and inflammation.
Rheumatic conditions trigger aching, swelling, break down, and stiffness on the regions surrounding the joint. Some rheumatic conditions can involve a number of internal organs and the immune system, provoking sudden or gradual symptoms that might cause severe, moderate, or mild joint pain.
