Joint pain can be caused by injury or disease of the joint or nearby tissues, including the cartilage that serves as cushioning for the adjacent bones; the tendons and ligaments that attach muscles to bone and stabilize the joint; the muscles; or the bursae, fluid-filled sacs that provide lubrication near joints.
Our board certified physicians are experts in diagnosing dysfunction in any of these structures that can lead to pain in the joint.
Our team approach includes physiatrists — physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation) — as well as nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists that work together to provide comprehensive and expert care.
After a careful physician evaluation, each patient receives a treatment tailored specifically to their needs. The vast majority of our patients are treated conservatively, through exercise, altering activities or techniques, physical therapy, medications or injections.
