Don’t let painful joints be debilitating and affect your quality of life
Joints connect bones within your body, providing support and enabling you to move.
Joints are made up of bone, muscles, cartilage, ligaments and synovial fluid, a lubricant that helps protect bones from being worn away over time by friction.
A joint’s structure, whether a hinge, ball-in-socket, pivot or other formation, allows movement in many directions.
Joints include shoulders, hips, elbows, knees, fingers, toes and wrists.
What is the root cause of joint pain?
Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause a lot of pain, discomfort as well as limiting range of motion.
Joints endure a huge amount of stress and joint pain (also known as arthralgia) is a common complaint.
Joint pain refers to discomfort, pain or inflammation in any of the body’s joints.
Many different conditions can lead to painful joints including arthritis (one of the most common causes of joint pain), osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis (inflammation of the cushioning pads around joints), gout, strains, sprains, obesity, over exercising and other injuries.
Joint pain can last for several months or years, if not a lifetime (chronic) or it may go away after a few weeks (acute). It can range in intensity from mild to debilitating.
The Dangers of drugs
Typical treatment for joint pain would be the common over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen.
Not only do these medications have serious negative side effects in the stomach and intestinal tract, but NSAIDs may actually accelerate the progression of joint destruction.
