Joint pain what is it?

Joint pain is a common symptom that can be caused by a wide variety of conditions.

Joint pain can affect any joint in the body but is most commonly felt in the spinal joints, knees, hips, and shoulders. Depending on the cause, the pain may be accompanied by stiffness, swelling, redness, or warmth.

Causes and Diagnosis

The most common causes of joint pain are arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, and muscle/joint sprain, as well as can be caused by injuries, infections, autoimmune diseases and many others. It can range from mild to severe and can be temporary or chronic.

Joint pain can be difficult to diagnose because there are many potential causes. A thorough medical history and physical examination are usually the first steps in diagnosing joint pain.

Imaging tests, such as X-rays or MRI, as well as Blood tests and other investigations, might be required in some cases to direct a correct diagnosis.


In mild cases, joint pain relief can be achieved through the use of over-the-counter medications and home remedies.

It’s important to underline though that treatment for joint pain depends on the underlying cause.
