Tendonitis in elbow

In the previous blog post, I discussed the most common causes of tendonitis. Tendonitis is inflammation of the tendon that causes pain, tenderness, and mild swelling. Overuse and repetitive movements are often the culprit, whether those movements involve lifting objects overhead, throwing a baseball, swimming, playing golf, running, painting the ceiling, or yard work. Of […]

Man holding painful elbow Tendonitis

We sometimes use the suffix “itis” in a joking way to describe someone who has unusual tendencies, obsessions, or aversions. For example, someone who thinks computers are the answer to every problem might have computeritis. A manager who wants to have nonstop, pointless meetings could have a bad case of meetingitis. When it comes to […]

Shoulder Pain

Like the hip, the shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint. Although the shoulder doesn’t support nearly as much weight or force as the hip, it’s still a complex structure of bone, muscle, and other soft tissue, all of which can contribute to shoulder pain, stiffness and weakness. The collarbone (clavicle) and shoulder blade (scapula) form the […]

In the previous post, we discussed the various injuries, diseases and conditions that cause pain in the hip, the strongest joint in the human body. From hip bursitis and osteoarthritis, to car accidents and sports injuries, to herniated discs and gynecological issues, there are dozens of causes of hip pain, some of which aren’t always […]

skeleton x-ray focus on hip pain

The knee may be the largest joint in the human body, but the hip is the strongest joint. Unlike the knee, which is a hinge joint designed to move in one direction, the hip is a ball-and-socket joint, capable of moving front to back, side to side, and around in a circle. To enable these […]

Painful knee

Years ago, if you wanted relief from knee pain caused by osteoarthritis, you would get a prescription for medication, cortisone shots, or ointments. Of course, those treatments only mask the pain without fixing the problem. The next step typically would be surgery. In some cases, knee surgery is the only option, especially for severe cases […]

Causes for Knee Pain

Did you know there are two joints in the knee? Both connect to the femur (thigh bone), the longest bone in the body. One joint connects the femur with the tibia (shin bone), which is the second longest bone in the body. The other joint connects the femur to the patella (kneecap). These bones in […]

Let me clarify two things. I’ve never smoked marijuana in my life, and this post has nothing to do with recreational marijuana use. But that’s a big reason why the conversation about cannabis for pain relief goes off the tracks. People automatically associate marijuana, or cannabis, with illegal drug use. What they don’t understand is […]

In the previous post, I discussed the real reasons for the opioid epidemic in our country. A letter was published in a highly respected medical journal that discussed flawed research about the risk of addiction when using prescription opioids for pain management. This led to several other similarly flawed studies. Of course, big pharma capitalized […]

According to research from the Institute of Medicine, 100 million Americans deal with chronic pain. That’s more than heart disease, cancer and diabetes combined. Back pain is the most common form of chronic pain, while headaches, neck pain and joint pain are also prevalent. First, let’s define chronic pain. Chronic pain is pain that lasts […]
