Perfect For Any Injury
Everyday activities can put a lot of strain on your knees, leaving them stiff and swollen, and leaving you in pain. The pain can get worse if you are very active or overweight since the cartilage that protects and cushions your bone surfaces can wear away over time. Conditions like degenerative joint disease, arthritis and tendonitis can all affect the knee.
Arthritis - Three different type of arthritis can affect the knee. Osteoarthritis is the most common and is usually a slow, progressive, degenerative disease. Rheumatoid Arthritis, an inflammatory disease, can destroy joint cartilage. Post traumatic Arthritis can develop after an injury and may develop years after a fracture, ligament injury or meniscus tear. Symptoms of arthritis include stiff and swollen joints, making it hard to bend or straighten the knee, pain and swelling in the mornings or after inactivity, and also a feeling of locking or buckling when standing.
Tendonitis - Characterized by inflamed tendons, tendonitis causes tenderness directly over the tendon, pain with movement of muscles and tendons, and swelling. It can be incredibly painful even if you are inactive.

Tennis elbow and golfer's elbow are both evidence of overuse and cause pain on the inside of the elbow.
Shoulder pain is the most common complaint amongst all ages. Whether temporary or chronic, shoulder pain affects everyday activities, making it difficult to perform even the simplest tasks.
Some common shoulder pain issues include:
Bursitis or Rotator Cuff Tendonitis - The most common diagnosis with shoulder pain, rotator cuff tendonitis refers to inflammation in different areas of the shoulder joint. This may be caused by overuse or sharp hard motions that may cause tearing. Symptoms include pain with overhead activities, pain while sleeping at night and pain over the outside of the shoulder/upper arm
Frozen Shoulder - Stiffness in the shoulder joint that prohibits range of motion is referred to as frozen shoulder. This condition usually affects adults between 40-60 years of age. There are patients who develop a frozen shoulder after a traumatic injury to the shoulder, but that is not always the cause. Some days it may feel like shoulder pain relief will never come.

Ankle pain can impact every aspect of your life. From running to lying in bed, swollen or painful ankles can make even the simplest tasks difficult. The most common injuries that occur in the ankle joint are sprains, arthritis, and tendonitis.
Ankle Sprains - These can occur most frequently when partaking in physical activity, especially those with a lot of side to side motions like basketball or tennis. The ankle may be twisted inward, causing small tears in the ligaments, which leads to swelling and bruising. Ankle sprains make it difficult to bear weight on the joint.
