Joints are one of the most important parts of our body, they form connections between bones, and provides support and cushion between our bones. Damage to the joint from injury or diseases (degeneration) can cause pain and discomfort impacting our movement and well being.
Osteoarthritis, strains, sprains, bursitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout are some of the common conditions that can lead to joint pain.
Knee, hip and shoulder are the most common locations of joint based injury or pain. Studies have shown one -third of adults suffer from joint pain is a month to month basis. These can be acute (short term) pain from work and sports-related injury to chronic (long term) conditions caused by diseases, postural conditions, malnutrition, and age-related symptoms.
In all cases, pain occurs due to inflammation on the joints and degeneration of the cartilage.
Inflammation irritates movement and often reduces our range of motion.
