Joint pain affects millions of Americans each year. Although it’s more common in older individuals, people of all ages can experience pain in their hips and knees. Osteoarthritis, which is due to aging and wear and tear on a joint, is the most common joint disorder – but joint pain can have many causes, and it can develop slowly or happen suddenly.
While some pain may get better on its own, it can sometimes require treatment – and some pain may not respond to nonsurgical management. If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from joint pain, you can take the first steps toward living pain-free by taking the Northwell Health Knee and Hip Risk Assessment today.
