Joint pain

Joint pain is a common condition that can occur in any joint in the body, including the knees, hips, shoulders, and fingers. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, arthritis, and overuse.

Symptoms of joint pain can include stiffness, swelling, and aching or throbbing pain. Treatment for joint pain depends on the underlying cause and may include rest, ice, and over-the-counter pain medications such as acetaminophen or NSAIDs.

Other treatments may include physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, or surgery in severe cases.

Prevention of joint pain involves maintaining a healthy weight, engaging in regular exercise, and avoiding repetitive motions or activities that put stress on the joints.
