    Could You Have Golfer's Elbow?

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Golfer's elbow is a condition in which the tendons, ligaments, and muscles are painful from over-use. Pain management is important for this condition, and physical therapy can be useful as well. Watch this video to learn more about treating golfer's elbow.

    As this video explains, starting with ice and compression can help with the pain. As you and your pain management specialist begin rehab, treatments such as stretching, flexing, and exercising can help strengthen the muscles to help heal and prevent future injuries. This physical therapy should be monitored by a professional.

    • After retiring from the NFL with a minor back injury back in 2002, I eventually moved to NYC to work in business. When my back went out on me while sitting in a chair one day, I found myself in unfamiliar waters. For the first time in 36 years, I couldn't walk. I never felt more helpless, pathetic, or pain. Not being sure where to go first, I... More

    How Arthritis Causes You Chronic Joint Pain

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Chronic joint pain is a problem that drives many people to seek pain management therapy. Many conditions can cause this kind of pain in your knees, ankles, wrists, hips, shoulders, fingers, and other joints, but arthritis is one of the more common.

    What is Arthritis?
    Arthritis is a disease that causes inflammation in the joints of the body. This inflammation can result in pain, stiffness, and mobility problems in the affected joints. Chronic joint pain is pain that occurs regularly, or even continually, resulting in a decrease in the quality of life that a person experiences.

    Types of Arthritis 
    Arthritis that causes chronic joint pain severe enough to require pain management comes in several forms. Two of these types include:

    • Rheumatoid arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the lining of the joints. In addition to pain, it causes redness, swelling, and stiffness. Medications can be used to provide pain management and to help prevent damage to the joints.
    • Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease. Chronic pain is associated with this condition, as well as joint irritation and stiffness as the cartilage deteriorates. Osteoarthritis is one of the most common causes of chronic joint pain.

    Who Gets Arthritis?
    Anyone can have chronic joint pain caused by arthritis. Men and women are affected, and osteoarthritis is more common in the older generations. However, some of the more than 100 variations of arthritis can affect people of any age. Certain medical conditions, such as obesity, can make people more susceptible to arthritis.
