What is joint pain?

Joint pain is a general term that includes any discomfort you experience in one or more of your joints. Joints are vital connections in your body where bones meet, supported by ligaments, tendons, muscles, cartilage, and nerves for proper function. Any injury or disease that affects the many components that make up your joints may result in pain.

At The How Clinic, we specialize in providing comprehensive care for individuals leading high-stress lives. Emergency room doctors, nurses, first responders, military personnel, and athletes are some of these individuals. Their occupation and lifestyles place them at an elevated risk of joint pain. This can potentially have significant impacts on various aspects of their lives.

If you’re seeking joint pain relief near you, The How Clinic specializes in providing the necessary resources to alleviate your pain. We aim to restore joint function so you can get back to work and your active lifestyle.
