Joint pain can involve any area where two bones are connected. This usually involves the hips, knees, shoulders, ankles, etc. Increasing age, injury, or excessive weight are just some of the causes of damage to joints. This damage may lead to arthritis. Immune function disorders and other medical problems can lead to joint pain as well. Long lasting joint pain should be evaluated. This may include x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, or other specialized testing. You may need to see a doctor that specializes in joint paint. That would be an Orthopedic Surgeon. Treatment options can range from physical therapy, bracing, home exercises, surgical procedures, joint injections, joint replacement, or joint preservation surgery.
