Joint pain treatment at Advanced Pain Medical Group includes diagnostics and therapies that focus on pinpointing pain at its origin to bring you lasting relief. The most common causes of shoulder, hip, and knee pain are due to damage to the joint. The specialized pain treatment doctors at our 8 Los Angeles area locations are experts in treating joint pain for patients of all ages.
What Causes Joint Pain?
Your body contains six different types of joints – ball and socket, hinge, condyloid, pivot, gliding, and saddle. Each allows you to pivot, twist, bend and swing in unique ways. Damage to the joint and/or inflammation can limit your range of motion, mobility, and ability to work or do the things you love without pain. There are many different causes of joint pain and each patient will have a unique story.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis & Osteoarthritis
- Fractures, Sprains & Strains
- Joint Inflammation (Bursitis)
- Autoimmune Disorders
- Lyme Disease
- Leukemia & Cancer
- Broken Bones
- Adult Still’s Disease
- Ankylosing Spondylitis

Can Car Accidents Cause Joint Pain?
Victims of a car crash frequently sustain damage to their joints. The accident can twist, push, and jam your arms, legs, and back and cause serious damage. We can help reduce the level of pain you feel after an accident by using a variety of advanced treatments. For medical advice, we need to schedule you for an appointment with one of our doctors who can advise the best method of treatment for your specific type of pain.
If you do not have medical insurance coverage and you were not at fault, we work with your attorney to get treatment started with no out-of-pocket costs before your settlement even arrives. Contact us today to learn more about the personal injury claim process.
Sports Injuries & Joint Pain
Another common cause of joint pain and damage is from playing repetitive or high-impact sports. Injuries received during sports can impact your performance or keep you out of the game completely.
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Pitcher’s shoulder
- Swimmer’s shoulder
- Jumper’s knee
Inflammation Of The Joints
Many diseases, chronic illnesses, and autoimmune disorders can cause joint inflammation or deterioration. These are often more than a few annoying aches. You may not be able to move your fingers, wrists, knees, shoulders, or hips without pain. During a flare-up, you may even experience discomfort when sitting or lying down that disrupts your ability to stay in one position for very long or sleep comfortably.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Fibromyalgia & Lupus
Whether you experience pain occasionally or chronically, we understand how debilitating it can be. You may have been injured, slowly noticed discomfort over time, or experienced a sudden flare-up due to disease. Joint pain treatments can last longer than your typical prescription medication and be less invasive than surgery.
