Causes and Symptoms of Arthritis Pain
Because there are many different types of arthritis, there can be many different causes of arthritis pain. However, the most common forms include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, gout, and lupus. Unfortunately, there’s not a single identifiable cause of arthritis, often making it hard for doctors to diagnose and treat. Regardless, some of the most common causes and risk factors include:
- A previous joint injury
- Genetic and hereditary factors
- Certain infections, such as Lyme disease
- Abnormal metabolism
- Problems with your immune system
- Improper diet
Regardless of the type or cause, all arthritis diseases involve joint swelling and pain because your body begins to mistakenly attack itself. Other possible symptoms of arthritis include:
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Back pain
- Stiffness and decreased range of motion
- Dry eyes and mouth
- Numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
- Trouble sleeping
- Cracking or grating sound when moving joints
As you can see, these symptoms can be entirely disruptive to your lifestyle. However, you don’t have to keep suffering. We can provide a customized treatment plan using some of our innovative procedures.
Arthritis Pain Treatments

Unlike other treatment centers, we take the time to examine your symptoms and physical condition to devise a plan of action that is completely personalized for your needs. We work to get to know you and understand your goals for pain relief.
In order to provide the best pain relief possible, our center uses the most cutting-edge techniques to provide long-lasting and effective treatment for arthritis. You won’t find our state-of-the-art treatments anywhere else.
Genicular Nerve Blocks
Sometimes, your pain might be too much to bear, especially if you’re feeling it in your knees. Genicular nerve blocks can help with this. During this procedure, we will either use an anesthetic to numb pain or perform radiofrequency ablation on the genicular nerves. After this, your knee pain levels will be decreased, allowing you to move and walk around like you did before. This provides both immediate and long-term pain relief.
Artificial Synovial Fluid Injections
Normally, your knee is protected from wear and tear by synovial fluid. In people with osteoarthritis in the knee, this fluid can break down and fail to provide you with the protection you need. With an artificial synovial fluid injection, we will inject hyaluronic acid into the knee to act as a replacement for this natural fluid. This will provide more cushioning for your knee joints, helping to lower your pain levels.
In many cases, strengthening and stretching the affected joints can play a huge role in improving function and reducing pain. By providing you with a number of exercises designed to improve mobility and use of your joints, we can help to slow the deterioration of the joint and restore function
Stem Cell Therapy
Platelets are usually found in your blood and are often first responders to soft tissue injuries, helping to repair and promote healing in the area. By delivering a super-concentrated dose of stem cells directly into the site of your arthritis, we can help your body stimulate healing. By injecting stem cell material into your body to reduce inflammation and restore damaged tissue. This should provide you with long-lasting pain relief.
