Lawrence General Joint Replacement Program
Don't Let Chronic Joint Pain Slow You Down
Joint pain, whether in your hip, knee, shoulder, or elsewhere, can slow you down and prevent you from enjoying your favorite activities; it can even take away your ability to perform basic daily self-care.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Lawrence General’s Joint Program provides a team of doctors, nurses, therapists, and other professionals to help find a solution to your joint pain. Let us help you get back to your active life.
What causes pain in your joints?
Joint aches, soreness, and pain can be caused by an injury affecting any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding or within a joint. The joint inflammation of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, can also cause pain, as can infections, and, in extremely rare cases, cancer of the joint.
Joint pain can range from mildly irritating to debilitating. It may go away after a few weeks (acute), or last for several weeks or months (chronic). Even short-term pain and swelling in the joints can affect your quality of life.
Our joint replacement team works closely with the total joint replacement surgeons at Orthopaedics Northeast and Associates in Orthopedics. If you contact either office regarding your joint pain, be sure to mention Lawrence General's Joint Program. We look forward to helping you on your journey back to increased joint mobility!
