Joint Pain Treatment in Vancouver
Joint Pain is.... a huge pain in the joint!
A joint is the location at which two or more bones make contact. They are constructed to allow movement and provide mechanical support, and are classified structurally and functionally. Joints are mainly classified structurally and functionally. Structural classification is determined by how the bones connect to each other, while functional classification is determined by the degree of movement between the articulating bones. In practice, there is significant overlap between the seven types of classifications.
There are various causes of joint pain. Arthritis is common though it should not be assumed it exists by merely the presence of joint pain. An x-ray diagnosis would be required for confirmation. Accumulated stress, leading to joint tension, inflammation, pressure and followed by pain, stiffness or discomfort is a typical presentation.
