We can help. The doctors at Neuro Pain Consultants put together this webpage to relay pertinent information on joint pain. Please continue reading.
What is Joint Pain?
The area where two bones meet in order to provide a body part’s motion is called a joint. When this area becomes injured or diseased, joint pain can be the result.
Joint pain, also called arthralgia, is a quite common condition experienced by patients of every age.
Common Symptoms of Joint Pain
Swelling (or inflammation), tenderness, and a localized warm sensation are all common symptoms of joint pain.
Joint pain can become aggravated when someone moves around a lot. Pressure and participation in activities with weight-bearing resistance also aggravate the joint pain condition.
If you have joint pain that lasts longer than one week or if the pain becomes severe, call to schedule an appointment with your doctor. He or she will perform an evaluation and ask about your symptoms.
What Causes Joint Pain?
Several factors can cause joint pain. If the bones, cartilage, or ligaments succumb to injury or disease, painful joints can occur.
Joint pain is also caused by arthritis, infections, or tumors.
Treatment and Care Options
These are just a few of the many treatments we offer at Detroit’s Neuro Pain Consultants pain management clinics (Bloomfield Hills, Clarkston, Shelby Township, Troy, and West Bloomfield Township) to help with joint pain:
- joint injections (with ultrasound)
- steroid injections
- platelet rich plasma injections (PRP)
- stem cell injections
- sports medicine
Rest, using ice on the affected area, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatory OTC medications may also be part of the treatment.
Depending on several factors, we can choose the best treatment(s) to help alleviate or eliminate your joint pain.

Following your doctor’s treatment plan is the best route to living with and managing joint pain. It does not have to take over your daily life. Just keep that in mind.
