What is a joint pain?
Joints such as, hip, shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle, hands, can be worn out due to overuse, trauma and/or age. When the joint wear out (AKA Arthritic changes), the cartilage wears out as well, which may lead to inflammation within the joint due to overuse. The inflammation causes pain as a dull ache, throbbing sensation, which results in deterioration of the quality of life.
What are my treatment options?
