The knee joint is one of the most vital joints in the body. The ligaments surrounding the knee joint stabilize body movements while also limiting others. If you regularly participate in sport, it is not uncommon to injure your tendons, cartilage or ligaments due to added strain on your knees. Obesity may also result in knee pain, as extra weight adds further compression onto the knee joints.
Foot and ankle
Each foot and ankle contains 28 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. Although strong, your foot and ankle work together under considerable weight and pressure and can therefore be prone to a number of painful problems and injuries. This can range from breaks, fractures, strains and sprains to tendon issues, bone malformations and conditions such as arthritis.
Hip problems are not just something that affects older generations, anyone of any age can experience issues with their hips. The most common hip problem is osteoarthritis which attacks the cartilage in the hip joint and causes the bones to rub together. Other hip conditions can be the result of sports injuries, falls or congenital diseases.
Your shoulders and elbows are particularly flexible joints, making them particularly at risk from injury. If you suffer from shoulder pain, strain or inflammation then performing the simplest of everyday tasks can become difficult and uncomfortable. Movements such as raising your arms or reaching behind you may be painful.
Back and spinal conditions
At any point in our lives, we could suffer from some kind of back pain or spine problem. This area of our body is often put under immense strain and pain in this area of your body can be aggravated by poor posture, bad lifting techniques, inadequate stretching before or after exercise or a high BMI. However, there are also conditions that are less preventable, including rheumatism, bone deterioration, osteoporosis or osteoarthritis. Similarly, birth conditions like scoliosis (curvature of the spine) or spinal stenosis.
Elbow, wrist and hand conditions
Your upper limbs can be placed under constant stress and strain. Elbow, hand and wrist pain can happen to anyone, whether you are sedentary or extremely active.
