Common Reasons for Joint Pain
Joint pain refers to the soreness/aches that may result from injury, a medical disorder, or age. The simple fact is that joint pain is not only common, but its prevalence increases as a result of the aging process.
- Arthritis is a medical disorder that affects the joint’s ability to move and can impact women, men, and children. Symptoms of arthritis will vary; however, this medical condition tends to be chronic in nature and likely to worsen with time.
The two primary types of arthritis include -
- Osteoarthritis Arthritis (OA) - is ranked among the most common forms of arthritis for those who are 40 years old or older. OA is a degenerative disease characterized by the breakdown of the joint’s cartilage.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis – as an autoimmune disease, RA causes one’s immune system to erroneously attack the protective layer of the inner part of the joint. The result is a painful and inflamed joint that afflicts women three times as often as men.
While arthritis is generally the root cause of joint pain, it may also occur due to -
- Overuse of the joint
- Infectious diseases
