Joint Pain Treatment in West Bloomfield, MI
The movable joints in our body consist of four types: ball and socket, hinge, pivot, and gliding. Each of these joints is susceptible to wear and tear as we age and encounter different injuries which lead to joint pain. If left without joint pain treatment it can seriously affect your ability to live your life in health.
We often take advantage of our joints because when everything is functioning well, we barely notice how complex joint function can be. This complexity among the different joints means that the pain can either develop slowly over time or take us by surprise coming on instantly.
For proper joint function, cartilage provides cushioning at the joint ends to absorb shock and protect bones from damage. Ligaments, or strong bands of tissue, hold bones together while muscles move the bones. The final components of well-functioning joints are the Bursae, fluid-filled sacs lined with a synovial membrane which provide cushion and reduce friction.
If any of these functions fall out of order, joint pain occurs and leaves you in need of joint pain treatment. As we age, the breakdown of cartilage naturally occurs which leads to joint pain. For those who live an active lifestyle, overuse or blunt trauma could be the root of pain.
