Joint Pain Q & A

What causes joint pain?

Your joints are complex body parts that connect two or more bones. The intricate joint systems made up of bones, ligaments, cartilage, tendons, and muscles are responsible for your body’s mobility.

The structure and function of your joints also make them more susceptible to injury and disease that result in pain. 

Some of the most common causes of joint pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Strains or sprains

Your joint pain may develop from an acute injury, overuse, or general wear and tear of joints that occurs with age.

In most cases, joint pain is mild and can be treated at home. However, if your joint pain is interfering with your daily life, Dr. Marinaro can help. 

He specializes in the treatment of joint pain that affects the elbows, knees, and shoulders and uses many innovative therapies to promote healing of your joint to alleviate inflammation and pain and restore normal function.

What can I expect during a consultation about my joint pain?

When you come in to see Dr. Marinaro for a joint pain consultation, you can expect a comprehensive evaluation. 

During your consultation, Dr. Marinaro asks detailed questions about your symptoms, including when they started, the type of pain you feel, and how your pain affects your daily routine. He also reviews your medical history and conducts a physical exam, paying close attention to the structure and function of the joint causing your symptoms.

He also evaluates your spine to look for signs of subluxation that may contribute to your joint pain or other health issues. 

Dr. Marinaro may also request diagnostic imaging to better understand the root cause of your joint pain. 

How is joint pain treated?

Dr. Marinaro creates an individualized treatment plan for your joint pain based on the underlying cause. 

Your treatment plan may include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Heat and ice
  • Physical therapy

You may also benefit from pulsed electromagnetic therapy to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. The innovative therapy uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate activity in your cells, which may stimulate your body’s natural healing powers.

Dr. Marinaro also uses pulsed electromagnetic therapy to treat anxiety.
