Joint pain can be discomforting and usually results from inflammation and swelling in and around the joint areas. Any part of your joint has the capability of causing discomfort and swelling including cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments, and even muscles. Sometimes joint pain can only be mild, causing more aggravation to the patient than pure pain. Other times it can feel as if your bone is grinding on bone in excruciating pain. No matter which type of joint pain you are enduring today, make sure you don’t ignore it because it could lead to serious problems for your health in the future.
Common Causes of Joint Pain
Some of the more common causes of joint pain are attributed to arthritis or arthralgia. Arthralgia means the joint itself is having inflammatory problems and causing the pain in the patient. The most common causes of this type of pain can be mild. Usually flaring up after certain physical activities. Wear and tear on joints like the fingers can create arthritis in the patient, which simply means overuse of these joints in the hand have been overworked causing inflammatory pain.
Other causes of joint pain could be severe. There are several different symptoms and illnesses which lead to severe pain including:
- Adult Still’s Disease
- Bone cancer
These are just a few illnesses that have severe pain attached to them which makes the patient’s life unbearable at times. If you are currently experiencing severe pain, make sure you schedule a consultation with one of our health care professionals today.
Why See A Chiropractor For Arthritis Pain

Joint pain also might be caused by rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease that attacks the joint lining membranes.

What You Should Consider With Joint Pain
