Arthritis is pain, swelling, and stiffness in one or more joints. It has several different types, with osteoarthritis as the most common type.
Bursitis involves painful swelling around the joints. It typically affects the shoulders, elbows, knees, and feet.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes musculoskeletal pain, swollen areas of the body, and fatigue. It also disrupts sleeping patterns and brain function.
Sciatica usually impacts the leg’s sciatic nerve. Lower back pain is one of the condition’s general symptoms.
Scoliosis is an irregular curve in the spine. Birth defects, neurological abnormalities, and genetic conditions cause scoliosis.
Patients can get knee pain from injuries or conditions such as arthritis, gout, and infections. Common symptoms include swelling, weakness, and popping or crunching sounds.
A herniated disc can occur anywhere along the spine — but it mostly occurs in the lower back. This condition often causes lower back pain or sciatica.
Foot pain is any pain or discomfort in one or more parts of the feet, while ankle pain causes the same effects in the ankles.
- Repetitive Stress Disorder
Repetitive stress disorder occurs when repetitive movements slowly increase muscle, tendon, and nerve damage.
Lower back pain is any discomfort in the lower back. Injuries and certain conditions can cause low back pain.
Upper back pain occurs in one’s upper back. Patients can get this condition unexpectedly or gradually.
- Extremity Pain (Arm & Leg)
This condition causes discomfort in one’s arms or legs. Common causes include wrong body posture or position, medical conditions, overuse, and daily wear.
- Shoulder Impingement & Elbow Pain
Impinged tendons or bursa can result in shoulder impingement syndrome, while overuse and sports injuries lead to elbow pain.
Hip pain can occur in various parts of the hip, thighs, and butt. Joint issues cause inner hip or groin pain, and tissue problems cause outer hip, upper thigh, or outer butt pain.
Neck pain and stiff neck stem from any irregularity, swelling, or injury.
- Tension Headaches or Migraine
Specific changes within the brain cause migraine. Eye pain, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, and vomiting are some of migraine’s common symptoms.
Numbness and tingling are types of temporary paresthesia that cause nerve and blood vessel pressure.
Dizziness makes people feel lightheaded, woozy, or disoriented. Vertigo occurs when one experiences a spinning sensation.
- Chronic Joint & Muscle Pain
Chronic joint pain can be a result of osteoarthritis or an inflammatory condition, while chronic muscle pain occurs in patients with fibromyalgia or myofascial pain.
Sprains are characterized by stretched or torn ligaments. Meanwhile, strains involve injured muscles or connective tissues.
Growing pains make the legs ache or throb. These sensations occur in front of the thighs, within the calves, or behind the knees.
