The Causes of Muscle Pain

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Many of us will, during our lifetime, experience discomfort from muscle pain, and there are a number of reasons why this may come about. Muscle pain often accompanies joint pain, another cause of suffering that we find all too common these days. Let’s look at the causes of joint pain, and why it may come about.

Muscle pain can occur as a result of arthritis, the most common cause of joint pain in humans. The accompanying muscle pain can result thanks to the extra stress placed upon the muscles when movement is restricted, as it often is when arthritis attacks.

Arthritis occurs in three types; rheumatoid arthritis is that which occurs when the thin friction-reducing covering that coats the bones in the joints degenerates, while Osteoarthritis is a similar condition that results from disintegration of the cartilage, also a vital component in aiding joint movement. The final version is post traumatic arthritis, which comes about as a result of accident in which the bones fail to heal correctly.

Pain from all of these can exert in both the bones and the muscles, and can be quite severe in many cases. Living with such pain is a requirement that arthritis sufferers must be prepared to handle as, at the moment, there are no known cures for arthritis.

Muscle pain is not only caused by arthritis, but can come about as a result of strains and sprains or even over-exertion; however, it is common practice to prescribe exercise for sufferers, as both joints and muscles are designed to move, and under-use can lead to exaggeration of the problem.

There are treatments that lead to a better standard of living for the sufferer of arthritis related joint and muscle pain, and along with regular light exercise these can include medications that provide the required relief of pain, along with lubrication of the joints, protection of the cartilage and enhancement of circulation in muscles, something that is greatly beneficial in terms of looking after pain relief.

These treatments also lead to a slowing down in the onset of osteoarthritis, a disease that affects - more than usually - people over the age of 50, and thus reduces the likelihood of suffering a severe case.

Given that a cure is unknown, pain management is the primary aim of any treatment regime for joint and muscle pain, and successful pain management is essential to give the sufferer a decent standard of living. A great proportion of us will suffer from joint and muscle related pain in our lifetime, and while a cure is still not forthcoming we can only rely upon the treatments that approach pain management successfully, as without such our movement will be severely restricted beyond necessary levels.

As medical research continues there will be better and more active treatments that come to the fore, but for now we must use those available to enhance the management of pain as best we can.

The Causes of Joint Pain

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

Joint pain is something that a great proportion of us will suffer from during our lifetime, and the cause of such can be varied indeed. To understand what causes joint pain it is helpful to know what joints are and what it is they do.

A joint is a term used to describe a connecting point between two bones, one where articulation is necessary; there are numerous types of joint in the body, and each of them uses a mechanism to enable movement of the bones as required. Think of the way in which the knees move differently to the shoulders, or the elbows different in manner to the fingers, and the distinctions are evident. However, it is clear that all joints need to move, and pain is often resultant from difficulty in doing just that.

The movement of our joins is made possible by a coating that is present on the bones - this is known as cartilage, and it can become damaged or distressed. Among the most common causes of joint pain of this fashion is the condition known as arthritis.

It is common in varying forms, and among the most prevalent is a form known as osteoarthritis.

This occurs as the cartilage becomes worn or begins to degenerate, and the friction between the bones becomes more pronounced. Osteoarthritis is most frequently seen in those over 50 years of old, and can also be enhanced in families with a history of the condition.

Rheumatoid arthritis is another very common form of the disease, this one caused by the degeneration of the thin tissue known as the synovium, a partner of cartilage in friction reduction, and results in great pain and reduced movement in the joints. This type of arthritis is more prevalent in women than it is in men, by as much as three times.

The third common type of arthritis is that known as post-traumatic arthritis, and occurs following an accident that damages the bone; in this case the joints may not heal properly, resulting in a less than smooth surface to the bone and inferior operation of the joint.

Arthritis is not the sole cause of joint pain and problems, but it is the most common by far; many severe cases are treated by replacing the affected joint with an artificial version, a practice that is becoming much more common in modern times. There are treatments for lesser cases that involve exercise and dietary routines, and the management of pain is primarily the aim in all cases of arthritis, as the condition has no known definite cure.

Dealing with chronic joint pain brought on by arthritis of any kind can be difficult, but in need not be crippling; there are several courses of action that the sufferer can take that will help towards the release of pain. It pays to remember that arthritis is a very common condition, and help is available to all sufferers to a great degree.

Can a chronic pain sufferer lead an active life?

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

It’s an often asked question, and one that has a surprisingly positive answer: yes, sufferers of chronic pain can live active and full lives with the right treatment and attention to the problem. Chronic pain has no cure, of course, and has many causes - arthritis being the prime - but there are ways and means of keeping suffering to a minimum, and reducing the impact of loss of mobility on ones life.

The first step for a sufferer is to take professional advice, and there are many web sites that can be used as valuable sources of information. Given the lack of a cure it is conceivable that repeated visits to the health practitioner will result in prescriptions of pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs; this is neither the best way nor one that many people want to go down, and there are alternative treatments available, plus further advice.

There are treatments that concentrate on keeping the lubrication of the joints enhanced, as most chronic pain is caused when the smooth lining - the cartilage - that enables painless movement is damaged or infected. These treatments will help this problem and, also, reduce future degeneration of the cartilage and its associated artefacts.

Furthermore, it is important to keep the joints moving, as when they are underused - even when healthy - they deteriorate and add to the chronic pain problem. Devising a simple and non-strenuous exercise regime is important in the fight against chronic pain, and with a few very easy exercises first thing in the morning a sufferer can find the rest of the day improved in a very short time.

Walking in the fresh air is a recommended pastime, too, as this involves exercise of the hips and knees, and the related arm joints, giving further movement and mobility to affected joints.

As we have said there are no known cures for chronic pain or its causes, but there remains the choice - in severe cases - to have a surgical replacement; this is carried out in cases where degeneration is almost complete, and the damaged bone will be replaced by an artificial open.

For the daily sufferer living with chronic pain is a chore, but it is entirely possible to live a full and active live if attention is paid to the details; walking regularly - leave the car for every other journey, say, or simply dedicate time for a stroll each day - is advised, and cycling can be a fine way of keeping joints in motion. A stationery bicycle may be a preferred option, as then regular exercise can be taken indoors.

Given that many millions of people suffer from chronic pain - in fact the estimate is one in five - it is important that the above, and many more, steps are taken to make the life of the sufferer easier and alleviate the constant pain. There is no reason why, with planning, ones life can not be as active as the perfectly able man.
