How Is Arthritis Pain Treated Without Surgery?

People who have rheumatoid arthritis might use different types of physical therapy to help restore strength, flexibility, improve mobility, coordination, and maintain function. In addition to that, massage, hydrotherapy, and other modalities (passive therapies administered to the patient) may also be a part of arthritis pain management and help reduce the discomfort.

When Should I See a Joint Pain Doctor in NJ?

Only in rare cases, the joint ache is an emergency. You can treat the vast majority of mild joint pain cases at home. Although, it is advisable to make an appointment with a doctor for joint pain if the discomfort occurs together with swelling, redness, tenderness, and warmth around the joint. Furthermore, you should immediately seek a specialist’s attention if the problem results from an injury and has a joint deformity, inability to use the joint, intense ache, and sudden swelling following it.

Are Medications Effective in Treating Joint Pain?

You can get relief for moderate-to-severe joint pain with swelling by using over-the-counter or prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These include aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen sodium. A newer generation of NSAIDs is also suitable for pain relief. Still, all except one of these drugs (Celebrex) are not on the market because of an increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and other cardiovascular events.

Is Physical Therapy a Helpful Joint Pain Treatment Option?

Physical therapy can assist you in strengthening the muscles around the joint, improve your range of motion, and stabilize the joint. A therapist can use ultrasound, heat or cold therapy, electrical nerve stimulation, and manipulation.
