What Makes Your Joints Hurt? If you want to understand how physical therapy can help you with your joint pain, you need to know why those symptoms are even happening to you! Joint stiffness and pain can be caused by a variety of problems, but take, for instance, an acute sprain or strain. The joints, muscles, tendons or ligaments may be impaired, causing inflammation. This time of pain can be painful and render you totally inactive. Soft tissue injuries don’t always happen because of an accident. They can also develop slowly over months or even years. You might notice that the pain also ebbs and flows depending on the time of day. Certain sports, jobs, hobbies can cause you to put excessive stress on certain joints over and over again, which could very well land you with a case of chronic tendonitis or bursitis!

Common Causes of Joint Pain Can you believe that it’s possible to develop soft tissue pain from doing absolutely nothing? It’s strange but true. Take, for example, this condition called adhesive capsulitis, otherwise known as “frozen shoulder” If you’ve had to wear a sling for a while, this is an uncomfortable condition you could end up having that can render your shoulder useless for quite some time. Osteoarthritis, more commonly known as arthritis, is the most frequent condition that causes pain and stiffness. This condition can affect anyone at any age, but is most often found in older patients and stems from age-related deterioration of the cartilage between the bones in a joint. Osteoarthritis isn’t the only one to look out for though. Rheumatoid arthritis is another painful, damaging joint condition caused by autoimmune issues.
