Joints are the hinges connecting your bones that enable you to walk, run, jump, and carry out all the hundreds of activities and movements you perform every day.

Damage to any of the tissues in the joint can cause joint pain, either from gradual wear and tear or repetitive movement or because of an acute injury.

Some of the most frequent causes of joint pain are:

Osteoarthritis / Rheumatoid arthritis
Sprained ligaments
Strained tendons
Full and partial dislocations
Osteoporosis
Gout
Bursitis

Arthritis is a leading cause of joint pain, which typically develops slowly and makes your joints stiff and inflamed.

There are many different types of arthritis, the most common being osteoarthritis, a condition in which the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears away over time to leave the bones exposed. They can then rub together, leading to inflammation and pain.

Acute joint pain that’s due to tissue trauma typically responds to rest and relief of pressure. Using hot compresses or ice packs can help with any swelling, and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain-relieving medication can help with the pain.

You may also need extra support for your injured joint such as a compression bandage, splint, or specialized brace. Physical therapy and massage can be highly beneficial in keeping joints flexible and building up strength following an injury and are also valuable if you have chronic joint pain.

Chronic pain also responds well to conservative treatment approaches and lifestyle changes, for example, losing weight to relieve pressure on the joints.
