Joint Pain Q & A

What is joint pain?

Joint pain includes any discomfort, swelling, or inflammation affecting any component that makes up your joints. 

You may develop pain in any joint in the body. However, weight-bearing joints like your feet, back, hips, and knees are a common source of pain. 

What causes joint pain?

You can develop joint pain as a result of an unexpected injury or underlying disease that affects the structure or function of your joint. Arthritis is a common cause of joint pain. 

Other causes of joint pain include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Ligament or tendon tears
  • Cartilage tears
  • Fractures
  • Dislocation
  • Cancer
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune disorders, such as lupus
  • Tendinitis

Though joint pain varies in type and severity, you should schedule an evaluation at Comprehensive Pain Management Center if your joint pain is severe or chronic or the result of an acute injury.

Ignoring your joint pain may increase your risk of permanent joint damage.
