Joint Physical Therapy
Joint Pain Physical Therapy
Hands-On Treatment. Effective Joint Pain Relief.
Jay is the best physical therapist in town! I had a couple car accidents that messed up my neck and shoulder and gave me chronic migraines. He was able to get me back on track. I was able to lift heavy and do Crossfit pain free in a very short amount of time, as well as significantly reducing my migraines. I highly recommend him and send all of my clients to him. You will not be disappointed his team is great, very educated and everyone at the clinic knows what they are doing. Nikki makes scheduling easy, is always positive and very helpful with all the physical therapy movements. You will not be disappointed and will have a faster recovery when you see Jay!
I think you guys are terrific and would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for fixing my neck and shoulder problems!
Therapydia staff did a great job not only getting me back on track fast, but they explained the problems I was having and gave me the information and knowledge I needed to avoid issues in the future. I would highly reccomend their services especially to people participating in high intensity work outs like crossfit.
What Causes Joint Pain?
Joints in the body are where two bones meet and your body has over 300 joints. Joints provide mechanical support and the cartilage covering the ends of the bones allows smooth movement at joints.
There are many conditions that can lead to pain in your joints including osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), bursitis or overuse or an acute injury. Common areas of joint pain include knee, shoulder, hip and ankles. When someone develops osteoarthritis (OA), the cartilage that acts as a cushion at the ends of most bones gets worn away causing bone on bone contact. This leads to pain, stiffness and difficulty movement. Osteoarthritis (OA) is degenerative joint disease or ‘wear-and-tear’ arthritis and is the most common type of arthritis.
Signs & Symptoms
Joint pain can be related to inflammation from the cartilage, bone, ligaments, tendons or muscles around the joint.
- Swelling around joint
- Redness around joint
- Tenderness and warmth around the joint
- Lack of joint mobility

Physical therapists are medical professionals with a graduate degree and clinical experience. They have the ability to examine, diagnose, treat and help prevent conditions that hinder movement. Movement can be anything from getting out of bed to walking around your neighborhood. Your treatment could include a combination of methods that address muscular pain:
- Manual therapy: Hands-on techniques to mobilize your muscles and joints to improve their motion, flexibility, and strength.
- Custom exercises: Build strength in the muscles surrounding the joint to stabilize weakened joints.
- Modalities: Depending on how best to manage your specific levels of pain, ice, heat, electrical stimulation or ultrasound may be used to complement your treatment.
- Postural education: Educations around body mechanics for common daily activities to cushion joints and lessen pain
