Joint pain is common in the feet, elbows, knees, spine, hands, neck, shoulders, and hips. This pain can be consistent or recurring. Moreover, some people with joint pain also complain of a grating or throbbing sensation. Due to pain, the joint may become stiff and achy in the morning and then loosen up later with activity and movement. However, pain could worsen if you engage in too much activity. Joint pain is a chronic condition. Hence, if left unaddressed, it can affect joint function, limit your ability to perform daily life tasks, and lower the quality of your life. Therefore, it is vital to consider joint regeneration to enjoy quality living with minimal pain.
According to a CDC report, approximately one in four adults in the United States suffer from joint pain and stiffness. This figure is growing as the population of the US gets older. Moreover, about 44 percent of people with joint pain are physically limited. Hence, they cannot enjoy or engage in their favorite hobbies or activities.
Joint pain symptoms vary between mild and severe. However, the common symptoms that may become causes for concern are:
The most prevalent causes of joint pain in the US are gout and arthritis. Approximately 15 million individuals report severe joint pain due to arthritis, and half experience persistent joint pain. Other conditions that may result in painful joints are:
Osteoarthritis is a wear & tear disease called degenerative joint disease. In this condition, the joint’s cartilage breaks down. It changes the underlying bone causing the formation of bony growths and thickening of the bone ends.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition that can be described as an autoimmune disease that causes severe joint pain and stiffness. It occurs when the body begins to attack its tissue.
Bursitis is a condition in which the fluid sacs that cushion the joints become inflamed. These sacs ease friction between the bones, muscles, and tendons. The condition is common in people above 40 and those that engage in activities like raking, scrubbing, painting, and playing sports such as tennis and golf.
Gout: This type of arthritis also causes persistent joint pain. It affects the joint of the big toe. The condition is caused by increasing uric acid levels in the blood. This causes sharp crystal formation in one or more joints. Gout causes severe pain with joint swelling and redness.
Tendinitis-It is the tendon inflammation typically felt in the elbow, shoulder, or heel. Tendons are flexible and strong tissue that connects the muscles to the bones. Tendinitis is caused when the tendons are overused.
Other causes include joint sprain and strain, joint infection, and sports injuries.
