Arthralgia, or joint pain, can cause trouble in one or more joints. Without joints we would not be able to move around and use our hands like we do. They are the engine that allows the body to move. For this reason, it is really easy to injure your joints, especially if a lot of physical pressure is placed on them.

Most people have had some sort of pain in their joints,at least once. Some might have only had minor pain while others have experienced serious pain. Either way, it can be incredibly annoying when it stands in front of your daily activities.

Arthralgia can make things difficult to do even when they are simple like getting out of bed in the morning or filling out a job application. Depending on what is causing the joint pain, symptoms can be gone in a few days or can go on until you pass away.

Kids, adults and elderly people can all have trouble with their joints, especially when they are injured. Athletes are really susceptible to arthralgia because of their constant use of their joints under harsh conditions. As people grow older, their bones become brittle and joints more prone to injury. Obese people also tend to have problems with their joints because of all the extra weight they are carrying around.

Joint pain is not a medical condition in itself but is a symptom. It is important to find out what the doctor thinks about your pain because this will allow them to set up a good treatment plan for you. In order to come up with an accurate diagnosis they might have to take x-rays, MRI, urinalysis, blood tests or bone scans. The tests that are done depend on the severity of your pain and it’s location.

There are plenty of treatment options when it comes to joint pain. To start with, you can use an OTC pain reliever like tylenol or advil. The doctor might choose to give you a prescription for a muscle relaxant or anti-inflammatory.

If the problems are severe then you will probably be prescribed a stronger pain medication and pills to help keep the problem area from becoming to swollen. Be careful with the medication your doctor prescribes because some of them can increase your chances of having a stroke or heart attack.

While conventional medication can be helpful in treating symptoms, more people are opting for safer, natural alternatives without the side effects. Natural treatments such as herbal and homeopathic remedies can effectively address the underlying cause and promote minor joint pain relief.

Clinical studies have proven the effectiveness of Devil’s Claw in treating symptoms of joint pain in conditions such as osteo-arthritis, fibrositis, rheumatism and small joint disease. Dietary supplements such as Glucosamine repair cartilage and maintain joint mobility while Boswellia acts as a natural anti-inflammatory.

Complementary therapy such as physical therapy and TENS treatment which sends a small electrical impulse to the nerves may also benefit patients with joint pain. Massage, acupuncture and chiropractic treatments are also helpful.

Also try to gently exercise your problem joint when you can. This will keep the blood flowing to the joint and help it to become stronger. Athletes need to be sure they give arthralgia ample time to heal before they get back into their regimine.
