Joint Pain Causes
The term “joint pain” is used with the term arthritis. These are a group of joint conditions that cause inflammation, resulting in pain and stiffness.
Arthritis is a common cause of joint paint, as well as osteoarthritis, brought on by wear and tear and the autoimmune condition rheumatoid arthritis. Many different conditions can cause joint pain, including sprains, strains, bursitis, and gout. Joint pain can affect any of the structures in a joint, including cartilage, bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles.
Joint pain can make getting around and participating in everyday activities much more difficult. Pain in the knee is most common, though you can also experience joint pain in your shoulder, hips, and throughout your body. The potential for joint pain increases as you get older.
