why is joint pain a common problem?

Joints provide you with the support that you require during movements by forming the connection between your bones. An injury or a disease can affect these joints, causing pain and restricting your mobility. It is a condition mostly prevalent among the older population. However, strain, overexertion and the rigours of modern lifestyle have made it a rather common problem in today’s times.

common causes of joint pain

Let us have a look at the main causes which lead to Joint pain:

Inflammation of the lining of the joint

In case of a relapse of an already sustained injury to the joint, there exists a possibility of the thin tissue layer lining the joints and the tendons getting inflamed. This condition, known as traumatic synovitis, generally does not cause redness but could be a reason for your joint pain.

Hemarthrosis

Hemarthrosis is a condition that is marked by bleeding in the spaces between the joints. While breaking of the blood vessels around the affected joint eventually causes the bleeding, the haemorrhage inside the joints usually leads to inflammation and joint pains.

Gout

Gout initially affects the joint of the big toe before spreading to the other joints. The skin on top of the affected joint becomes red and tender to the touch, with persistent pain being the constant harrow. Pseudo-gout is also a similar problem, except the fact it generally affects the knee joint initially.

Damaged knee-cap

Another good reason for that niggle in the joint, Chondromalacia patellae is a condition in which the cartilages at the back of the kneecap soften and deteriorate with time. Though this is a common condition among athletics, it can also manifest in the elderly, suffering from arthritis.

STDs

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as gonorrhea or chlamydia can also cause mild to moderate pain in the joints. Gonorrhea is caused by bacteria that are spread during (mostly unprotected) sexual intercourse. These bacteria can affect one or more of the body’s joints, making them red, swollen and painful. Chlamydia is a common infection that causes reactive arthritis (caused by inflammation).

Accidental Injury

You can experience a sudden pain in the joint if you hurt yourself accidentally, for example, a broken wrist, arm, ankle, leg or a hip fracture.

Patient Testimonials

Mr. Mahesh

I had a serious L4 & L5 disc prolapse when I sought Portea’s physiotherapy. Thanks a lot to Dr. Amitava and Portea for their prompt service. Keep up the good work.

I am very happy to share my feedback regarding the excellent treatment I got. My Physiotherapist Dr. Babita Gurung was extremely helpful in getting back to me normal. She was very clear in her instructions and guides me well for each and every treatment she gives. She was absolutely wonderful and very active while discussing the problem and it’s remedy. She gives full attention and time to the patient and never in hurry to attend more patients by bypassing the under-treatment patients. Worth recommending to friends. Thank you all so much for your excellent care. I am feeling so much better now than when I started my PT. Your professionalism, concern and friendliness were much appreciated.

I think it was the most professional yet personal therapy I have had so far in the last 3 years since I first had the back problems. Dr. Fateh is a polite, good-natured and compassionate gentleman, who is extremely competent at his work and displayed great consistency throughout the sessions, even towards the end without slacking away time or hurrying up through the final sessions like most other Physiotherapists, as I have experienced before. He in fact ensured that he put a little more extra efforts towards the end to ensure that my back remains strong post the sessions.
