Joint Pain

Orthopaedic Center of Excellence

What to Expect

Your doctor will begin by diagnosing the cause of your joint pain through a physical exam, imaging tests and, in some instances, lab tests.

Common Causes of Joint Pain

  • Arthritis
  • Dislocation
  • Gout
  • Inflammation of Joints or Tendons
  • Sprains or Strains

Treating Joint Pain

Your treatment will depend on the cause and severity of your pain.

Possible Treatments

New Treatments

Our doctors have been on the cutting edge of orthopaedic treatment for 20 years and work to bring in new effective techniques for patients.

Relief for Stiffness and Pain Without Surgery or Drugs

A newer, non-invasive technique called "dry needling" can reach and relax deep muscle tissue for better movement and less pain without using drugs or requiring surgery.

Our Total Joint Program

If you need surgery for joint pain, our patient-centered program is designed to give you comprehensive care and a speedy recovery.

Recovery Time

Most patients reach full recovery in 6 to 8 weeks.

Personalized Program

Your treatment plan will be customized to you and your situation to help you get back to everyday activities sooner.

Effective Surgeries

Our knee replacement surgeries rank well below the standard benchmark for patient readmission. Most patients are discharged home immediately after surgery.
