Joint Pain


Joint Pain

Arthralgia is pain or discomfort arising from any joint. Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries. Joint pain is extremely common. In one national survey, about one-third of adults reported having joint pain within the past 30 days. Knee pain was the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain, but joint pain can affect any part of your body, from your ankles to your shoulders. As one gets older, painful joints become increasingly more common. Daily pain can affect mobility, independence, and quality of life.
