By definition, a joint is the place where two bones meet. Joint pain can be caused by bone fractures or injury to the ligaments, muscles, tendons around the joint or the cartilage within the joint. When joints are injured, your movement can become limited. If treated improperly, a joint injury can result in a long-term condition such as arthritis. There are measures you can take to help prevent and treat painful joint injuries.
Use What Works
Joint pain can prevent us from being active, and as a result, the entirety of our health may suffer. If you injure a joint, try to find ways to stay active. An injured knee joint shouldn't prevent you from working out with your upper body. Exercising helps promote healthy blood circulation. It's important to always talk to your physician before beginning or changing an exercise plan—especially if you've had an injury.
Watch Your Joints
Protecting your joints from a traumatic injury is difficult. However, you can avoid injuries from repetitive movements by limiting activities that involve performing the same motion over and over. This can help you avoid damage to your cartilage and joints, which may lead to arthritis.
