LifeClinic offers various treatment plans that are customized to your needs. We can treat various musculoskeletal conditions, such as the following:
The swelling of one or more joints is known as arthritis. This rheumatic condition causes pain and a decreased range of motion. The older you get, the more susceptible you are to this condition. Treatments for arthritis vary but have a general goal of reducing symptoms and improving the patient’s quality of life. The most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The former targets the cartilage and causes them to break down while the latter attacks the joints.
Bursitis occurs when the joints become inflamed, tender, and swollen. This condition targets the bursae or the fluid-filled sacs that act as a cushion to your bones, tendons, and muscles near your joints. It commonly occurs in the elbow, hip, and shoulder, but can also develop in the knee and heel.
This condition is more commonly known as knee pain. People of all ages can develop this. It can be caused by a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. Arthritis, gout, and other medical conditions are also possible causes. Common symptoms of knee pain include swelling, weakness, stiffness, and popping sounds in the knee area.
Our spine is made up of several bones called vertebrae. They are cushioned by discs that act as shock absorbers for the spinal bones. When a fragment of this disc is pushed out of the annulus (outer layer) and into the spinal canal through a tear or rupture, they become herniated, bulged, or slipped. This is a sign of early degeneration.
The spinal canal has minimal space that can’t fit the spinal nerve and the herniated disc. Because of this, the disc presses on the spinal nerve and thus causes pain, which can be severe. This condition can happen in any part of the spine but commonly occurs in the lower back.
Extremity Pain (Arm & Leg)
Pain in the arms and legs are often caused by the frequent usage of the shoulder and hip joints. There are various causes of extremity pain, such as improper posture, overuse, daily wear, and medical conditions such as tendinitis, bursitis, and subluxations.
Arm and leg pain may also result from “referred pain” or pain that you feel in one part of your body caused by discomfort in another region. An example of this is an injured pancreas causing pain in your back or discomfort in your teeth and jaws as an early symptom of a heart attack.
