Having good body and joint health helps improve mobility, quality of life and promotes an active lifestyle. Body pain can effect numerous areas including wrists, ankles, knees, back, neck and shoulder areas. We can help treat numerous areas of body pain conditions ranging from arthritis to more serious chronic issues such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the wearing down of the protective tissue at the ends of bones occurs gradually and deteriorates over time. This can be a chronic condition with continuous pain.

Phantom Limb Pain

If you have lost a limb or another part of your body, you may feel painful sensations that seem to be coming from the missing part. This phenomenon is called "phantom pain." It is common among amputees.

Sciatica

This condition is a result from pressure on the sciatic nerve which causes radiating pain throughout the lower back and legs. This is usually caused when a herniated disc or bone spur on the spine presses on the nerve.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

This causes the body's immune system to attack its own tissue, affects joint linings, and causes painful swelling and joint damage. Areas of pain include joints, back and muscle groups.

We have arthritis treatment options at our San Diego location. There are over 100 different types of arthritis, but all relate to the informal way to refer to joint pain or joint disease. It is the most common among women and occurs more frequently as people get older. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes. These changes may be visible, such as knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray. Some types of arthritis also affect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin as well as the joints.

This condition is a problem with the peripheral nervous system. These are the nerves that branch out from your brain and spinal cord and travel to all of the other parts of your body. Seek medical care right away if you notice abnormal tingling, weakness or pain in your hands or feet, or a lack of coordination and falling. Early diagnosis and treatment offer the best chance for controlling your symptoms and preventing further damage to your peripheral nerves.

We can provide this steroid injection at our San Diego clinic. This injection procedure is performed to relieve pain caused by arthritis in the sacroiliac joint where the spine and hip bone meet. The steroid medication can reduce swelling and inflammation in the joint. If the patient begins to experience extended pain relief after a therapeutic sacroiliac joint injection, he or she can begin a physical therapy or rehabilitation program to further reduce pain and return the patient to normal activity levels.

This condition is an irritation or compression of one or more nerve roots in the lumbar spine. Because these nerves travel to the hips, buttocks, legs and feet, an injury in the lumbar spine can cause symptoms in these areas. Sciatica may result from a variety of problems with the bones and tissues of the lumbar spinal column.
