Joint Pain


Joint pain is one of the more common causes of discomfort in adults, arising from medical conditions such as arthritis, aging, inflammation, as well as injuries. The knees, hips, elbows, ankles, and wrists are commonly affected joints.

Joint pain may be chronic or come and go. Mild joint pain can cause stiffness or soreness that can be helped with over-the-counter pain relievers, while more severe joint pain can impact a person’s mobility and function. Our goal is to uncover the cause of your joint pain and find effective treatments to help you manage discomfort and enjoy an active life again. 

What Causes Joint Pain?

The most common conditions that can cause joint pain include:

Signs and Symptoms of Joint Pain

Joint symptoms can range from mild to severe. If you experience one or more of these common symptoms the specialists at Monarch Pain Management can help:

  • Swelling or enlargement of the affected joint(s)
  • Numbness
  • Painful movement
  • Joints that grind, snap, or click during movement
  • Stiffness 
  • Difficulty bending or straightening the joint
  • Loss of  range of motion


Treatment and Prevention

Joint pain that interferes with your ability to perform and enjoy everyday activities, from walking, gardening, and playing a sport to just getting out of bed in the morning, should be addressed by a specialist at Monarch Pain Management. We have multiple therapeutic options to help you get back to living life pain-free again.

First-line treatments include:

  •  At-home treatments include the use of a heating pad or ice on the affected joint(s). 
  • Exercise. Regular movement and gentle exercises can help relieve joint pain while building muscle strength and improving joint function. Walking, swimming, yoga, and gentle stretching may be recommended by your provider or physical therapist.   
  • Weight loss can help by eliminating some of the extra pressure that excess weight can put on the joints. 
  • Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen are one of the most common ways to relieve joint pain and reduce inflammation. 
  • Topical treatments such as ointments or gels can be conveniently rubbed onto the affected area to relieve pain.   

Other pain-relieving therapies at Monarch Pain Management include:

  • Joint injections deliver pain medications directly to the affected joint. Some slow-release medications can alleviate pain for several weeks to months.
  • Physical therapy introduces gentle exercises that can improve mobility and overall joint function.
