Joint Pain Q & A

What is joint pain?

Joint pain refers to any type of discomfort you experience in or around one of your joints. The pain may be dull and achy, burning, or sharp. The pain may also affect your ability to use the joint. 

Your joint pain may develop suddenly after an unexpected injury or seem to occur slowly and worsen over time. 

The knee, shoulder, and hip are common sources of joint pain. These joints endure a lot of stress and have a wide range of mobility that makes them susceptible to pain.

No matter the cause or degree of pain, if you’re experiencing joint pain that’s making it difficult to manage your day-to-day activities, then it’s time to contact the specialists at Restoration Healthcare.
