WHAT HELPS ARTHRITIS PAIN?

Joint pain can be disabling. It commonly comes and goes in flares making patients unable to function. While some advanced arthritic knee pain or shoulder pain requires surgical intervention (such as arthroscopy, knee replacement or shoulder replacement) most arthritis pain responds quite well to conservative management - physiotherapy, icing, rest and anti-inflammatory medication. What you can do at home in sports medicine we often call RICE (Rest, Icing, Compression, Elevation). Rest the joint, put a bag with ice on it twice per day for 10-15 minutes, use soft braces or wrap the joint in bandage, elevate the extremity when not in use to help pain and swelling. In the long run weight control or weight loss is crucial. What is an option in between surgery and conservative treatment are joint injections. While cortisone injections and hyaluronic acid injections do not reverse the degenerative changes they are able to help pain for several months with minimal risk. This gives patients good chances for return to normal daily function. This is where our joint pain clinic in Windsor offers help. We will evaluate and discuss injection options best tailored to your specific situation. 

WHAT IS ARTHRITIS AND TENDONITIS?

Arthritis in its most common form is a degenerative disease in a wear-and-tear mechanism. Delicate joint surface gets consistently rubbed away and subsequent inflammatory process starts causing pain. This is followed by uncontrolled bony regrowth in form of bone spurs, which unfortunately this is not restoring joint surface but causing just more pain and movement difficulty. Arthritic pain at first may come in waves or flare-ups lasting weeks to months, often followed by periods of improvement. With advanced arthritis pain can be constant. 

Tendonitis or tendinopathy is a form of inflammation of tendons. It can appear for a variety of reasons, at times from repetitive movements. Tendinopathy is more common in specific jobs. Carpal tunnel syndrome and epicondylitis is known to be more frequent in factory assembly workers, butchers, mechanics, gardeners and painters. Periods of extended rest is the best initial treatment, often assisted by forced rest with splints and braces, cortisone injections around the tendon site are a second line option for providing fast and reliable relief.
