Orthopedic Causes & Treatment for Joint Pain

Orthopedic Causes & Treatment for Joint Pain


Joints are particularly susceptible to orthopedic conditions such as stiffness or pain due to their complex construction. Within the orthopedic structure of joints, each joint must connect bone and muscle with ligaments and tendons with enough strength to last a lifetime, yet with enough flexibility to allow repetitive movement for the office worker and the professional athlete. Fluid-filled bursa sacs cushion and pad bones to allow muscles and tendons to glide over bones. When one small orthopedic member ceases to perform in sync, pain can occur.

Joint pain can be caused by orthopedic conditions including:


  • Osteoarthritis- orthopedic degeneration of joint cartilage and growth of bone spurs
  • Bursitis-inflammation of the bursa
  • Strains or sprains-overuse or over-exertion
  • Tendonitis-inflammation of tendons
  • Osteomyelitis-an infection in the bone
  • Chondromalacia patellae-grinding in the knee due to softening of the knee cartilage or misalignment of the knee cap
