There are approximately 360 joints in the human body that serve to provide structural stability and support fluid movement. When damage to joints occurs, the result is often painful, restricted motion, with surrounding muscle spasm and inflammation.
The causes of joint pain are just as numerous as the treatments, making it understandably difficult to know which solution is best for your problem. Conventional management of joint conditions typically involves dependence on daily medication, repeated steroid injections, and invasive procedures. While surgical intervention is occasionally required, the providers at Elevate Medical prioritize natural, drug-free therapy options that assist in the body’s ability to heal itself.
When you undergo care at Elevate Medical, your joint pain will be addressed from a collaborative perspective, where you will receive the expertise from several different health provider types under one roof, and one treatment plan, for the most individualized attention possible. Imagine what your day would feel like without the stress of achy joints!
