As the length of stay for hip and knee arthroplasty has decreased over the years, “outpatient,” or same-calendar-day discharge has become increasingly common.
One of the most commonly used medical treatments for arthritis joint pain is the cortisone injection. Whether or not a cortisone injection is right for you depends on many factors. For example, is inflammation causing your joint pain? Which joint is affected? Are you in need of short-term relief?
When you do core-building exercises, you strengthen the muscles in your abdomen and back. Strong core muscles take pressure off your spine and hip joints, which can help reduce arthritis pain and prevent additional joint damage.
