What causes joint pain?

The answer is simple. If you have healthy joints, they should work without causing pain. Likewise, unhealthy joints will cause pain. The cause of unhealthy joints might include disease or injury. Some symptoms of unhealthy joints includes:

  • Pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Limited movement

A majority of joint disorders are caused by arthritis. In the United States alone, more than 42 million people have arthritis. Some of the most common forms of arthritis include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Post-Traumatic Arthritis
  • Paget’s Disease
  • Avascular Necrosis

Occasionally, joint pain might be caused by a deformity or an injury. In this case, it is important to consult with your doctor on the best way to protect your injured joint.
