Orthopedics & Sports Medicine

Relief from arthritis or joint pain

Living with aches and pains isn’t really living. We understand the debilitating effects arthritis and joint pain can have and the limits they can place on your lifestyle. That’s why we offer highly advanced diagnostics and treatments for bone and joint disease at Goshen Physicians Orthopedics & Sports Medicine.

For less severe cases, we often prescribe anti-inflammatory and pain medication along with physical therapy, recommendations for nutrition and self-management techniques you can perform at home. For more severe cases, we offer an array of surgeries, including minimally invasive hip and knee operations, shoulder and hip arthroscopy, patient-specific joint surgery, partial and complete joint replacement as well as reconstructive surgery.

Our care doesn't end there. When a patient’s procedure is complete and healing begins, we offer rehabilitation services and on-going care to meet every need.

A closer look at arthritis pain

Joints consist of ligaments, bursa, tendons, cartilage, and bone. And when one or several of these components suffer injury, the result is joint pain.

Joint pain can be caused by many factors.

  • Inflammation – swelling as a result of overuse, injury or joint malfunction or deterioration
  • Infection – when a bacterial infection spreads from one part of the body to a bone or joint through the blood
  • Injury – trauma such as torn cartilage, torn or strained ligaments and tendons, fractures and dislocations
  • Tendinitis – swelling caused by overuse or repetitive activity
  • Osteoarthritis – when cartilage covering the end of the bone is worn away, resulting in bone-on-bone friction
  • Rheumatoid arthritis – a disease condition where the body’s immune system attacks itself and causes joint lining to swell
  • Bursitis – when the bursa (the cushion between tendons, joints, muscles and bones) becomes inflamed, usually from overuse
  • Gout – a build up of uric acid that forms crystals in the joints causing swelling, severe pain and joint destruction if not treated properly
