Get Treatment for Joint Pain in Milwaukee
There are many conditions which can cause chronic pain. Joint injuries in the neck, hips, knees, and feet/ankles are the most commonly reported. Painkillers can temporarily mask the pain, but it is important to know the cause of the pain in order to provide treatment. Neurology & Pain Treatment in Milwaukee offers diagnosis and treatment options for patients dealing with chronic pain.
Unfortunately for many patients, it can take time to recognize you are experiencing chronic pain. At that point it may seem impossible to determine what caused the pain to start. Dr. Neal Pollack believes in thorough examination and listening to your needs to best determine the source of your pain.
Most Common Causes of Joint Pain
For many, overexertion can lead to chronic joint pain. Additional causes include:
- Strains and sprains
- Poor posture
- Nerve root abnormalities
Why You NEED Treatment for Your Chronic Pain
Without diagnosis and treatment, suffers of chronic pain face additional health and lifestyle problems. Constant pain can lead to depression, stress, and sleep disruptions. Hip, knee, and foot disorders can limit mobility. Even taking short walks can be debilitating. Painkillers may mask the symptoms, but they do not provide a cure.
Patients with chronic pain may have to take time off from work, either to pursue treatment or because the pain is unbearable. A hospital stay for surgery can mean days or weeks before returning to work. You need a better, faster solution to your pain problem.
Prolotherapy: An Alternative to Surgery
Prolotherapy is one of the most popular forms of regenerative injection therapy. Alternatives include stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. While these options are similar to prolotherapy, prolotherapy is more cost efficient, natural, and safer.
