The causes of joint pain usually vary from one person to another, and regardless of whether you’re old, young, athletic or non-athletic, anyone can get joint pain. Here are some of the things that can cause joint pain.
Bad posture is the number one cause of most joint pain. Posture is important for the alignment of joints in the body from your spine, to the shoulders, knees, hips and even the feet. Poor posture makes you overwork the muscles of your neck and back. Your immune system’s efforts to heal those muscles causes inflammation that can potentially lead to arthritis in nearby joints.
Overuse Of Joint
Wear and tear of the joint over time or because of overuse. Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and scleroderma are caused by the body’s immune system attacking the body’s own tissues. Gout is caused by the buildup of crystals in the joints.
Any kind of joint injury or trauma can eventually cause joint pain, but dislocations and fractures are more common. Damage to the bone, cartilage or other joint structures can change the mechanics of the joint, causing the wear and tear to happen more quickly.
The most common causes of joint inflammation are injuries and inflammatory arthritis. Pain and inflammation resulting from injuries usually resolve, but inflammatory arthritis is a chronic condition that may get worse with time.
Bone infections aren’t among the most common cause of joint pain, but they are serious, and particularly painful. A bone infection, known as osteomyelitis, occurs when there is a wound on the skin which then allows bacteria and other harmful microbes into bone tissue. Bone infection can occur from a puncture wound, recent surgery, or a broken bone that has gone through the skin.
