It all starts with a dull ache. You think it could be a sprain. A break from the regular routine and some rest could cure it. And it does. But the ache resumes almost immediately. The usual reaction to such pain is to completely cut down any activity that seems to aggravate the pain. The reason is that joint pain is being accepted as part and parcel of life. People more often than not believe that you have to learn to tolerate and live with the pain because that is what age does to you.
The subsequent side effect is the lack of joint usage, and it only worsens the situation. What you should realize is that this pain should not be ignored. This pain is an indicator. The body is asking for your attention via this pain. Calling for help in away. This SOS sign has to be understood, analyzed, and dealt with in the right way.
What does pain mean?
Pain is a distressing feeling often caused by intense or damaging stimuli. The International Association for the Study of Pain's widely used definition defines pain as "an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage.” In medical diagnosis, pain is regarded as a symptom of an underlying condition.
The bond between the pain and the body
The reaction of the body to pain is to withdraw. Pain motivates the individual to pull out from a damaging situation. This is to protect a damaged body part while it heals and avoid similar future experiences. More often than not, the pain is resolved when the stimulus is removed from the equation. Sometimes, it might persist despite the removal and reflects on the self-healing ability of the body. When there is pain despite the absence of the stimuli, age is deemed as the case.
Joint pain is one of the most interfering factors in one’s life. It tends to reduce the quality of life and general functioning. Joints are where bones meet. These joints allow the bones to move. Shoulders, hips, elbows, and knees are the major joints in the body. Pain in this area could be discomfort, soreness, or just aches. It could also be due to an injury or illness. Arthritis is considered to be one of the leading long-term causes.
Aches in the joints are usual complaints and do not necessitate a visit to the doctor. This prompts individuals to take care of themselves at home more often without understanding the actual reason behind the pain. A simple search on Google and a couple of painkillers later, the problem seems to be ‘handled.’
In one national survey, about one-third of adults reported having joint pain within the past 30 days. Considering how common it is, it is all the more important to understand the different types of joint pain and how it should be treated.
Treatment of Joint Pain
Various conditions can lead to painful aches in the joints. This includes arthritis, gout, osteoarthritis, etc. apart from sprains and strains. The most common complaint is the knee pain. This is followed by hip and shoulder pain. Joint pain can be anything from your feet and ankles to your hands and shoulders. Age tends to increase these aches and pains.
Joint pain ranges from mild irritation to highly painful. It could go away after a few weeks if it is an acute issue. Chronic pain lasts for several weeks, sometimes lasting longer than three months. Short term or long, this pain can affect the quality of life.
Whatever be the cause or severity of the issue, it can be handled with therapy, medication, and/or alternative treatments.
