When you live in a place as beautiful as Wyoming, you try to take advantage of the outdoors as much as possible—whether through hiking, running, swimming, golfing, or biking. However, it can be hard to do your favorite things—let alone your everyday activities—if you suffer from chronic joint pain. If you need help managing your pain so that you can continue enjoying all that Rock Springs and the rest of Wyoming have to offer, you can turn to the doctors of Premier Bone & Joint Centers.
What Causes Chronic Joint Pain?
Despite sometimes being quite debilitating, joint pain is fairly common. If the pain goes away after a few days or weeks then it is acute; if it lasts for several weeks or months then it is considered chronic. Many different conditions can lead to joint pain, including:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Nerve compression (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
- Past or current injuries
