Investigating the Causes of Joint Pain

Joint pain is a condition that can significantly affect your quality of life, making it essential to understand its causes. Common joint pain causes include inflammatory conditions, injuries, overuse, infections, diseases, and other factors. By understanding why joints hurt, you can make informed decisions about your health, seek the right treatment options, and manage your condition effectively. Whether you’re experiencing joint pain or want to help someone who is, WVU Medicine Reynolds Memorial Hospital can provide the necessary information to help best understand the issues.

Common Reasons Why Joints Hurt

Joints hurt due to various reasons, including certain medical conditions. Two primary joint pain causes are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that affects cartilage in the joints. Over time, cartilage wear and tear can lead to arthritis pain, stiffness, and swelling in affected joints such as knees, hips, and spine.
Contrarily, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease causing inflammation in the joints when the immune system mistakenly attacks the joint lining. This results in arthritis pain, swelling, and stiffness, affecting multiple joints throughout the body, including the hands, wrists, and feet.

If your joints hurt, it’s crucial to consult a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate joint pain treatment. At WVU Medicine Reynolds Memorial Hospital, our orthopedic team of bone and joint experts provides comprehensive care for joint pain and related conditions, offering a range of treatment options including medication, physical therapy, and minimally invasive procedures.

How Inflammatory Conditions Cause Joint Pain

Inflammatory conditions can also be significant joint pain causes. Understanding these conditions can help in the effective treatment and management of arthritis pain. Conditions like Bursitis, Tendinitis, and Lupus can cause joint pain.

If your joints hurt due to an inflammatory condition, seeking professional help is essential. At WVU Medicine Reynolds Memorial Hospital, our team of highly skilled orthopedic experts specializes in diagnosing and treating various inflammatory conditions that cause joint pain. We offer comprehensive care and personalized joint pain treatment plans to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Joint Pain Causes: Injury and Overuse

Injury and overuse are other causes that make joints hurt. Sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, and fractures can all lead to joint pain.
