Wrist, knee, shoulder and back pain
Many of us will experience wrist pain over our lifetime. This can be caused by an injury, through overuse of the wrist or through repetitive motion. Such overuse activities like racket sports, typing or sewing can cause pain or lead to a condition called carpal tunnel syndrome. Swelling, bruising and wrist pain can also be a sign of injury. X-ray is an important diagnostic tool to help evaluate what may be causing your symptoms.
Other causes of pain are:
- Sprains and strains
Knee pain can result from an injury such as from playing sports, from normal wear during the aging process or from such diseases as osteoarthritis. Such conditions can affect the bone, cartilage, tendons or ligaments and result in fluid in your knee. A common injury to the knee resulting from a sudden twisting motion is a tear to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
The shoulder is a complex joint composed of three bones. The most movable joints in your body, they can too become unstable should an injury occur to the muscles, tendons or ligaments, leading to shoulder pain. As a result of instability, it is the site of many common problems to include sprains, strains, dislocations and separations, tendinitis, bursitis, torn rotator cuffs, frozen shoulder, fractures and arthritis.
One of the most common medical problems that affects everyone is back pain. This can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain. Back pain can arise suddenly and last from a few days to a few weeks or months. The majority of back pain goes away on its own, though it can take some time.
