What is Joint Pain?
Joint pain is the discomfort, soreness, and aches in your joints. Joints are where different bones meet and allow you to move by bending some body parts. Joints include the shoulders, hips, knees, and elbows. Joint pain is common among many people, especially athletes, due to rigorous activities.
Joint pain can be caused by an illness or injury such as a sports injury. Joint pain happens after the tendons, ligaments, or bursae around the joint are affected or injured. The pain you feel in your joints could be the result of an infection or joint inflammation. If your joint pain comes with redness or swelling and seems to be getting worse, visit our chiropractor at Sterchi Chiropractic to have it examined thoroughly.
Joint Pain Symptoms
Joint pain can occur in different ways. The pain may start when you least expect it. While performing some repetitive movements, it can come on suddenly or gradually, decrease during rest, and could last for a long or a short time. Some of the symptoms of joint pain include:
- The area around the joint is red, tender, swollen, or warm
- Your pain continues for more than three days
- Experiencing fever with no flu symptoms
Treat the condition with urgency if:
- You have a severe injury to the joint
- The joint swells suddenly
- Joint seems deformed
- Experience severe joint pain
- Your joint becomes immobile
