Arthritis Pain? This Is What You Need to Know About Joint Injections
(http://ow.ly/fg0C30nNSEO)

If your joint pain is no longer relieved by a simple heating pad or cold compress, you might start to consider a joint injection. A joint injection is an injection that is administered directly into your affected joint. Not all injections are the same. Some consist of steroids, some consist of hyaluronic acid, and some are considered stem cell therapy.

Not sure which type of joint injection is best for you? Your pain doctor can help you weigh the pros and cons of each injection.

(http://ow.ly/V5bf30nNSEG)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections can help treat many types of injuries and pain, including tendon injuries and arthritis. PRP injections are generally well-tolerated because the injection is based on your own blood. PRP injections provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, and encourage tissue repair from the inside out.

4 Common Causes of Leg Pain
(http://ow.ly/U3lm30nNSEC)

Believe it or not, leg pain can be caused by a problem with your back. For instance, spinal stenosis (a condition in which your spinal canal becomes narrower) causes pain in your legs when your nerves become compressed. Sciatica can also cause pain in your leg.

Not sure what's causing your pain? Don't hesitate to check in with your pain specialist, especially if you think a back condition is causing your pain.

Managing Pain with TENS: What Can It Do?
(http://ow.ly/RVUT50lUpdf)

If you have chronic pain, your doctor may suggest TENS, which stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. This therapy relieves pain by emitting a low-voltage electric current; this electric current then interrupts your pain signals so that the pain messages do not reach the brain. TENS can be incorporated into the treatment plan for arthritis, cancer pain, bursitis, and more.
