Joint Pain Causes
Joint pain causes the stiffness in your joints that lead to pain in your shoulders, toes, or fingers. Most joint pain treatments work by targeting the degradation of the joints in order to speed up the healing process. There are many factors of everyday life that can lead to the development of joint pain. Certain aspects such as the stress of physical work and just the process of getting older can lead a person susceptible to joint pain-causing conditions. These conditions include but are not limited to:
- Osteoarthritis: This is a common type of arthritis resulting from when the protective cartilage between bones wears away. Osteoarthritis develops slowly over time and typically begins when a person is middle aged. It makes the joints become painful and stiff and it will usually get worse as a person ages.
- Rheumatoid arthritis: This arthritis results from the deformation of joints in the fingers and wrists. It is a chronic disease that can lead to swelling and pain in the joints.
- Traumatic injury: This is self explanatory. A traumatic injury, whether it’s the result of a car crash or a workplace accident, can greatly damage the joints in your body and you may need some kind of physical therapy to bounce back from it.
- Bursitis: This is the result of when you put too much stress on your joints, typically from a job. It is most common to develop in the hips, knees, elbows, or shoulder. If your job requires you to do a lot of heavy lifting, you could be liable to develop this.
- Tendinitis: This disease is the result of inflammation of the tendons. Tendons are the flexible bands that connect bone and muscle. Like bursitis, this is also typically caused by an abundance of stress on the joints and it is typically seen in the elbow, heel, or shoulder.
These joint pain causes are unique in both how they manifest and how we go about treating them. If the pain comes from an injury, then treatment will usually involve trying to speed up the healing process. While degradation will typically need the use of treatment to relieve the pain at the source and build back up the important movement that was lost. Infinite Wellness Integrative Medical Center has the knowledge and experience to know what each patient needs for their individual case.
