Joint & Muscle Problems

Orthopaedics Surgery in Pune

Pain that seems to be coming from joints can sometimes be coming from structures outside the joints, such as ligaments, tendons, or muscles (see Introduction to the Biology of the Musculoskeletal System). Examples of such disorders are bursitis and tendinitis.
True joint pain (arthralgia) may or not be accompanied by joint inflammation (arthritis). The most common symptom of joint inflammation is pain. Inflamed joints may also be warm and swollen, and less often the overlying skin may be red. Arthritis may involve only joints of the limbs or also joints of the central part of the skeleton, such as the spine or pelvis. Pain may occur only when a joint is moved or may be present at rest. Other symptoms, such as rash, fever, eye pain, or mouth sores, may be present depending on the cause of the joint pain.
Different disorders tend to affect different numbers of joints. Because of this, doctors consider different causes of pain when the pain affects one joint .When multiple joints are involved, some disorders are more likely to affect the same joint on both sides of the body (for example, both knees and both hands) than other disorders.

What are the symptoms of joint pain ?

You should also see a doctor if :

  • The area around the joint is swollen, red, tender, or warm to the touch
  • The pain persists for three days or more
  • You have a fever but no other signs of the flu

Go to the emergency room if any of the following occurs :

  • You’ve experienced a serious injury.
  • The joint appears deformed.
  • Swelling of the joint occurs suddenly.
  • The joint is completely immobile.
  • You have severe joint pain.

How is joint pain diagnosed ?

Your doctor will probably perform a physical exam. They’ll also ask you a series of questions about your joint pain. This may help to narrow down the potential causes. A joint X-ray may be necessary to identify arthritis-related joint damage. If your doctor suspects there’s another cause, they may order a blood test to screen for certain autoimmune disorders. They may also request a sedimentation rate test to measure the level of inflammation in the body or a complete blood count.

How is joint pain treated ?

Medical Treatment

  • Traction
  • Physiotherapy
  • Injections in joint
  • Medicines to relieve pain
  • Treatment of arthritis like rheumatoid arthritis
  • Treatment of trauma related arthritis
  • Massage with gels/ oils

Your treatment options will depend on the cause of the pain. In some cases, your doctor will need to draw out accumulated fluid in the joint area to test for infection or gout or other causes of the joint pain. They might also recommend surgery to replace the joint. Other nonsurgical treatment methods could include lifestyle changes or medications that can potentially cause your RA to go into remission. In the case of RA, your doctor will first address inflammation. Once the RA goes into remission, your medical treatment will focus on keeping a tight rein on your condition so that you avoid flare-ups.
