JOINT PAIN-Understand it and treat it
Are you suffering from joint pain and still do not know how to treat it in the best way possible?
Well, before deciding its treatment one must first understand what actually a joint pain is.
Joints are the parts where one bone meets another and helps the bones to move which is the reason why a person is able to walk, run, and move his arms, shoulders and other such joints.
What is a joint pain?
Joint pain is a condition when a particular joint or various joints of the body experience aches or discomfort due to which the normal routine of a person sometimes comes to a halt.
Joints which can easily become a prey to pain are shoulders, knees, elbows, hips.
In some cases, the problem may erupt from minor conditions of pain. But when ignored, it starts creating major problems.
Generally, people take it for granted and do not care to get the required treatment for joint pains which may sometimes lead to adverse situations.
Joint pain causes
There are numerous causes of joint pain and vary from person to person. An injury is one of the causes where a person may suffer from temporary or even permanent joint pain.
In some cases, the surrounding bone or the lining of the joint or the muscles around the joint may cause a problem which may cause joint pain.
General causes of joint pain are:
People suffering from a skin disease named psoriasis often develop psoriatic arthritis which causes inflammation in the joints. This affects finger, toe joints, wrists, lower back, knees as well as ankles. This can be controlled with the help of medications but it never goes away permanently.
This causes bumps known as rheumatoid nodules and affects the joints of hands as well as of wrists. People experience stiffness and pain in joints when they wake up in the morning or after a period of rest during any time of the day. In some cases, acute pains become a part of the person’s life. Also, with time it also starts affecting other parts of the body.
Gout is one of the forms of arthritis and the pain is acute in this case. In most of the cases, it affects the big toe and even causes swelling and warmth. High levels of uric acid and being overweight trigger the problem further. The joint pain is very severe and sometimes unbearable in this case.
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
It is a disease which can affect any part of the body including skin, joints or bones. This can leave the joints swollen, stiff or in pain and is generally experienced when a person wakes up in the morning or even during any time of the day.
There are greater chances of people with rheumatoid arthritis or lupus to develop fibromyalgia which causes fatigue and pains in various joints.
This attacks the knee joints and other large joints of the body. This is the major cause of knee pains due to which many lost their independence as they had to rely on some external support for a basic thing like walking.
I am quite sure there are many questions jumping in your mind right now like what next? what to do? where to go? But understanding this is very important that joint pain is a problem which can be cured but neglecting it is a blunder. So one should pay close attention to the treatments so that those grave situations may be avoided.
