joint problems & arthritis

There are many causes of joint problems – from poor postures and prolonged sitting at work, to overuse, to inflammation of the joint lining such as in frozen shoulder.

Many patients who come to see us with joint problems are concerned about ‘wear and tear’ or arthritis, and just because you may have a joint problem, it doesn’t necessarily follow that you have arthritis. As people age, wear and tear changes in various joints in the body are actually considered normal, and can start to occur as early as the late teens to early twenties in some joints.

So treatment of a joint problem, even if it is related to wear or arthritis, involves treating the problems around this, such as stiffness and lack of motion, loss of muscle strength and loss of function, as well as pain relief.
