So what are joints? Joints form the connections between bones. The joints allow our bones to move and are made up of cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bursas which are fluid-filled sacs that help cushion the joint, and the synovial membrane that is the lining of the joint capsule that secretes synovial fluid to lubricate the joint. Any of these parts of the joint can become irritated or inflamed in response to a variety of disorders or conditions including years of exercise. Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause a lot of pain.
Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries. Knee pain is the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain, but joint pain can affect any part of your body, from your ankles and feet to your shoulders and hands. As you get older, painful joints become increasingly more common.
