Joints are the parts of your body where two or more bones come together and allow for movement. When an issue in one of these areas arises, it can be difficult to overcome. If you’re unable to move your joints without experiencing pain, it’s time to schedule an appointment for joint pain treatment in Chicago with our team at Free Body Physical Therapy. We’re well versed in all of the common causes of joint pain, and will properly diagnose the issue before starting a treatment regimen that is right for you.




One of the most common causes of frequent joint pain is arthritis. This condition causes the cartilage between your joints to begin to break down. As the wear and tear around your joints take place, it can cause swelling and inflammation, which is what leads to pain. Below are some of the most common symptoms associated with arthritis:


  • Stiffness.
  • Swelling.
  • Pain.
  • Tenderness.
  • Decreased range of motion.

There are many different types of arthritis that a person can be plagued with throughout their diagnosis. However, they are not the only causes of joint pain a person can experience.  Whether it be due to arthritis, or any other type of issue, you can trust that our team will be able to concoct a treatment plan that will help deliver the desired results. Additional causes of joint pain you may be experiencing can include:


  • Tendonitis/tendinopathy.

Treatment Options


The more you let a problematic joint remain motionless, the harder it will become to move it later down the road. Stiff joints will only get worse when you let them rest for too long, which is why physical therapy is the perfect solution to this problem. Our team will teach you how to perform stretches and strengthening exercises that will work to improve your quality of life. Below are examples of the goals that we’ll look to achieve during your physical therapy sessions:


  • Reducing the pain and swelling in your joints.
  • Restoring your natural range of motion.
  • Teach you how to lift correctly.
  • Increasing the strength of the muscles around the joints.
  • Teaching you how to maintain joint health in the future.
