In joint pain, the Doctor’s goal is to reduce pain and inflammation, and preserve joint function. Pain killers are not merely sufficient. There are measures you need to take to avoid further damage.
Joint pain can be caused by injury affecting the joint. Pain is also a feature of joint inflammation (arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis) and infection, and rarely it can be a cause of tumors of the joint.
If you have joint pain, don’t just dose yourself with analgesics! Find out the cause, seek help now!!
