Join Pain : Reasons of having them :Our joints are our body are like shock absorbers. Each joint is cushioned by cartilage and supported by muscles, tendons and ligaments. Everyday activity places stress on the joints and causes the supporting structures to wear down over time.

Some of the causes of Joint Pains are

* Osteoarthritis (OA) :This condition is caused by the cushioning (cartilage) between the bone joints to wear away. As the disease gets worse, the cartilage disappears and the bone rubs on bone. Bony spurs form around the joint.

* Strains or Sprains: usual and repetetive exertions on a specific part of the joints causes this condition.

* External Injuries : external injuries like a fracture ,getting hurt and accidental damages can cause joint pain.

* Arthritis : Arthritis is a group of common conditions involving damage to the joints of the body.There are different kinds of arthritis and each has a different cause. Statistically the prevalence of arthritis is much higher among women than men.Rheumatoid Arthritis is an example of a specific type of arthritis.

* Tendonitis :Tendonitis is inflammation (swelling) of a tendon, which can cause pain in the affected area. It can affect tendons around the shoulder, elbow, wrist, finger, thigh, knee or back of the heel.

* Gout& Pseudogout: These are the two most common types of debilitating illness that is caused by the formation of crstals within the joint space

* Osteomyelitis:This condition is a bone infection often caused by bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus (pronounced: sta-fuh-low-kah-kus are-ee-us).
