Joints make movement possible and act as cushions to absorb shock throughout our day-to-day activities, errands, and exercise. Different types of joints in the body allow for varying degrees of movement. For example, knee joints are hinge-like and move back and forth. Complex joints, like those at the hip, allow for a full range of motion.
Joints provide support for movement and are surrounded by cartilage, an outer membrane producing fluids that lubricate the joint, stabilizing ligaments, connecting tendons, and bursa, fluid-filled sacs between ligaments and bone that decrease friction. Joint problems can occur when there are issues with the joint itself or any of these surrounding tissues.
Soreness in joints can occur anywhere in the body for a variety of reasons. Joint problems can be the result of overuse, injury, illnesses, pregnancy, obesity, a lack of exercise, and viral infections.
Common symptoms of joint problems include swelling, stiffness, warmth, and pain. These can indicate inflammation or injury. Persistent pain, or pain accompanied by a fever or viral infection should be treated by a physician.
