If you’re experiencing joint pains, BeauxMD provides treatment in the form of PRP therapy. This innovative treatment uses your body’s own plasma to decrease pain, and correct joint mobility, and slow down, halt, or even correct cartilage damage.

Causes and Symptoms of Joint Problems

Problems with the joints can come from either an illness, injury, or repeated overuse of a joint. 

Symptoms can be stiffness, soreness, and aching in the areas where our bones connect (the shoulders, hips, elbows, knees, hands, and wrists). This discomfort can be either constant or intermittent, from mild to very severe.

When You Should See a Professional 

If you’re suffering from joint problems, you may be wondering if you should see a medical professional. It’s a good idea to visit a doctor regarding your joint pain if:

  • You’re not sure what is causing your pain
  • The area surrounding your joint is swollen, red, tender, or warm
  • The discomfort is constant for over three days

Common Joint Conditions

At BeauxMD, we use PRP therapy to treat painful joint issues for our patients. Here are some of the common conditions that we treat.

Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow

Tennis elbow comes from repeating the same motion. The tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow become damaged and inflamed. Golfer’s elbow, on the other hand, causes discomfort in the area where the forearm muscle tendons connect to the bony bump on the inside of the elbow.

Golfer’s elbow affects the inside epicondyle, whereas tennis elbow affects the outside epicondyle. Neither are limited to tennis or golf players; they can affect anyone who overuse these tendons.

Tendonitis

Tendinitis is an inflammatory condition. The tendon affected is swollen and painful, may also include microscopic damage to the tendon itself. Tendonitis can happen to anyone, but it’s more common in adults over the age of 40.

Tendonosis

Tendonosis occurs when a tendon is overused and begins to degenerate. It can happen to any tendon, but most often we see it happen in the Achilles tendon.

Hamstring Strain

One of the most particularly painful joint conditions is a hamstring strain. This happens when a hamstring muscle tears due to the muscle being stretched beyond its capacity, or with a sudden load.

MCL Sprains

MCL sprains happen when the knee is pushed inward by direct force on the outside of the knee. These injuries happen most often in football or soccer players, but they can happen due to other situations as well.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a joint condition that develops when the cartilage that cushions the edge of the bones wears down. Osteoarthritis can damage any joint, but most commonly affects the joints in your hips, spine, hands, and knees.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Occurring when the immune system isn’t functioning correctly, rheumatoid arthritis causes discomfort and swelling in the small joints of the hands and feet.
