Arthritis Pain Can Stop – Chronic Pain Management Solutions

You Deserve to Live Pain-Free. The Arthritis Foundation of America states there are currently over 100 different types of arthritis that affect over 300,000 children and 53 million adults!

What is arthritis?
Well it’s not really one thing. Instead it refers to numerous types of joint pain. It can affect anybody regardless of your age, sex, or ethnicity. Sadly it’s the number one cause of disability in the United States. There are few common factors in that it affects women more than men and aging accelerates the symptoms.

This joint pain condition often results in chronic pain where an effective pain management routine is hugely beneficial.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and according to The Arthritis Society affects 1 in 10 people. This inflammation of the joint causes extreme pain, swelling, redness, and stiffness of the joint. It’s a degenerative arthritis where preventative measures including a pain management plan are V.I.P!

Common Symptoms of Arthritis WebMD experts report the main symptoms are:

  • Pain
  • Limited joint function
  • Inflammation of the joints
  • Stiffness
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Warmth
  • Tenderness

And because many arthritic conditions are rheumatic diseases, they can trigger symptoms in various parts of the body and not directly with your joints.

Certain forms of arthritis trigger:

  • Fever
  • Gland swelling
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Abnormalities of the kidneys, heart and lungs

About Health Orthopedics report determining a causal factor for arthritis is difficult but some of the risk factors are:

Genetics – Research still leaves room for questions but studies do show genetics influence your risk for developing arthritis.

Weight – The heavier you are the harder it is on your joints over time. Particularly the hips and knees of overweight people have an increased risk for developing this condition.

Age – The longer your clock ticks the more brittle and less resilient your cartilage becomes. Time also inhibits your cartilage ability to repair itself and this triggers arthritis.

Previous Injury – This is particularly evident in professional athletes. Football players and hockey players are especially prone to developing spine, knee, or hip joint pain because of all the excessive wear and tear on their body.

Job Hazzard – Some occupations are prime candidates for developing chronic joint pain later in life. Dairy farming for one is extremely hard on the knees and back.

Sickness – Joint infections or multiple bouts of gout can leave you with constantly sore and painful joints.

Some forms of arthritis can be managed by:

  • Using assisted devices
  • Balancing rest and exercise
  • Avoiding repeat action
  • movement
  • Weight training
  • Keeping your weight healthy
  • Using hot and cold therapies

And of course look into having a professional create a pain management schedule personalized to you. It’s important that all factors are considered before your plan is created.

I have been a patient of Dr. Igor's for 2-3 years now. He is one of the best pain doctors I have been to since becoming sick 12 years ago. He listens to the issues I have and works out a pain management plan with me. He takes the time to explain what is going on and makes me understand. He also has a great sense of humor. I'm so happy to have finally found a great doctor.

Dr. Igor has done a wonderful job of meeting my needs with pain management. He is very careful with me concerning medications. Although medicine is a necessary evil, he makes sure that my pain management is manageable without "overdoing" the drugs. He is very thorough and does a great job with back procedures. I'm so thankful to have him for my pain management doctor.

I have a lot of issues with pain in my hips and back. I have always been very fearful of going to doctors until I was sent to Dr. Igor Smelyansky. He has been so wonderful to me and always makes me feel like the only patient he has. Thank you.

I have known Dr. Igor for 3 or 4 years and am so pleased with his work as a doctor. He is a super doctor. I would be very unhappy if I were told that Dr. Igor was not going to be my doctor. He is a very pleasant person to have as my doctor. I hope that he never stops being by doctor. Thank you Dr. Igor.

I have been a patient of Dr. Igor’s for the past three years. I’m 53 years old and have been a carpenter all my life.

Over the years I have seen many different doctors for these issues. Dr. Igor is the only doctor that ...

I have been treated for my lower back pain by Dr. Igor for three years at Roanne County and Crossville. The injections he has given me have greatly helped. Overall he has taken excellent care of me.
