Joints are where one bone connects with another. Joints and their surrounding structures allow you to bend your elbows and knees, wiggle your hips, bend your back, turn your head, and wave your fingers to say good-bye.
There are spaces between the bones that allow for proper movement and function. Smooth tissue called cartilage and synovium and a lubricant called synovial fluid fill and cushion the joints so bones do not rub together.
When joints do not work properly, muscles and ligaments cannot function properly either. This can lead to a host of problems most of which cause PAIN.
The most common causes for joint pain are:
- Aging - the older you get the more joint pain you are likely to experience.
- Injury - often sustained from a fall, an accident, playing contact sports or repetitive work tasks.
- Illness - such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, bursitis, tendonitis and gout.
- Excessive weight - extra weight provides added force on your joing which can wear and tear your cartilage.
Symptoms of joint pain include:
- Persistent aching or pains in and around the joint.
- Limited motion joints are stiff, hard to move restricting range of motion.
- Swelling inflammation within and around the joint.
