What is joint pain?

Joint pain refers to any discomfort you experience in or near one of your joints. The pain may be a dull ache or sharp and severe. Your joints are comprised of many components, including bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments, and the pain you experience at your joint can be from a disease or injury affecting any one of these components.

While it’s possible to manage joint pain at home, if your pain is affecting mobility or making it difficult for you to carry out your daily tasks, then the team at NeuroSpinecare can help.
