What causes joint pain in the human body?

Joint pain can have many causes or combination of causes.

So, let's start with the basics. This is a joint (happens to be the knee joint, a very popular joint with orthopedists- gets a lot of wear and damage) with all the parts labeled.

Arthritis. Plain, old osteoarthritis. 'Osteo' means bone; arthritis means stiffness and pain. Number 1 cause of joint pain. It's caused by the loss of cartilage- see the cartilage there? usually through aging, but often accompanied by damage or injury, and so the ends of the bones involved rub on each other instead of gliding smoothly past each other. Hurts. Creates inflammation, which also hurts, and can result in permanent swelling and deformation, which also hurts. OA can develop at any time in the life cycle, with or without any recalled injury; simple wear-and-tear is all it takes sometimes. Can be diagnosed through a good history and x-ray, usually. OA is very much age-related, though, and, if you're over, say, 30, the first thing a doctor will suspect in a claim of joint pain is osteoarthritis.

Injury. Most of the structures of a joint don't heal fast or well. Tendons (fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone, usually) and ligaments (tissue which connects bone-or cartilage- to other bones or cartilage) heal very slowly or not at all. They can sometimes be surgically re-attached, but, again, healing is a slow process. A sprain, medically defined as ligaments being strained or torn, can take a very long time to heal if the damage is severe, although in the general course of life, a sprain is usually minor and results in little more than pain/discomfort and swelling. A bad sprain, though, can result in permanent damage. Because the joint no longer works correctly, the end-result of such an injury usually means the joint becomes deformed, and long-term pain/discomfort is the result. While the bones of the joint can break, that injury is less usual, but the healing of such takes time and often results in the above-described osteoarthritis.

Bursitis. A bursa is a fluid-filled area or sac within the joint structure- you can see the labeled patella bursas in the diagram. These sacs of fluid can become inflammed- due to injury, usually- which causes pressure which causes pain. Bursitis is suspected when there is no recalled injury, swelling and pain, and an x-ray does not demonstrate loss of cartilage severe enough for osteoarthritis. Bursitis is most often found in knee and shoulder joints.

Rheumatoid arthritis. RA is an autoimmune disorder which causes many problems throughout the body systems. In the joints, inflammation in the pockets of synovial fluid (that stuff in the bursas) cause swelling and stiffness- often prolonged stiffness, much longer than that of OA- and the joints can become damaged, twisted, and essentially useless. Because it is an auto-immune disease, RA is treated far differently than other joint ailments.


Why is there a temporary relief for your joint pains when you crack your fingers?

Escaping gases: Scientists explain that synovial fluid present in your joints acts as a lubricant. The fluid contains the gases oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. When you pop or crack a joint, you stretch the joint capsule. Gas is rapidly released, which forms bubbles. In order to crack the same knuckle again, you have to wait until the gases return to the synovial fluid.

Rumacure oil is one of the best natural joint and muscle pain relief remedies. It has very powerful herbal ingredients in it so it does not cause any adverse effects. Use it to massage the affected areas on a regular basis for 3 to 4 months and the pain will go away for good.


Why do we get muscle pain nearly after 24 hours and not before 24 hours of doing exercise?

When we exercise glycogen present in muscle is burned which gives energy & lactic acid. This lactic acid causes muscle pain which leads to increased blood flow to muscle. This glycogen is washed away into general circulation. Pouring of warm water over that muscle helps to clear glycogen & we get relief of pain. This phenomena appears when we exercise first time . When you carry out daily muscle get used to it & it will not appear.


How can I get rid of shoulder muscle pain without painkillers?

This us a vague question but if it is more towards the neck( flowing up behind an ear), I went to PT and have a personal cure. Allbeit hard to explain I will try.

Stand in a corner with your hands and upper arms leaning on opposite walls. Stand straight facing the corner, close enough so your forearms are on the wall comfortably and so you aren't reaching. Shimmy in so you are standing super straight, this will sort of *pop* the muscle or realign it by pushing gently in a corner, it pulls you back bones together as well.

As you slowly push your arms up it will move the muscle too and loosen it.

I realize this is hard to explain but I couldn't move my head and had migraines, on a whim I went to PT and it ended up being my neck. He said it's growing from texters, PC workers looking down, etc. I left cured after one push, but I do it all the time now.

I hope you find relief wherever it may be! Also, I sleep on my side which isn't good but I prop my shoulder on a pillow so it doesn't shrug forward( or try)


Why does muscles pain feel better when someone massages them?

When some one massages, the brain starts feeling and appreciating the warmth and touch in the place of pain which makes one feel better. This helps to break the cycle of pain-spasm for a while. Same time circulation locally increases at the point of pain and helps in clearing away of pain causing chemicals. However in many cases such relief may be but temporary. Massage immediately after an acute injury should also be avoided.
