There are many causes of joint pains including:
- Other types of arthritis such as rheumatoid, ankylosing spondylitis
- Tendon pain and weakness
- Cartilage injuries
- Joint stiffness
- Frozen shoulder
- Pregnancy-related joint pain
Sometimes the joint itself is the source of your pain but other times, it may be the soft tissues that surround the joint. A good clinical assessment will determine the cause and we will be able to start treatment immediately.
Treatments we would use for joint pain would include stretches, strengthening, joint mobilisations or manipulation, advice and education about your condition.
