Joint pain is an aching or pins and needles feeling in the joints. Many larger problems can come from simple joint pain, even cancer, although that’s extremely rare. Joint pain is nothing to be scared of unless it does end up being because of cancer, but then again that very rare. Joint pain is extremely common, usually all you need is rest.
When the cartilage in the joint starts to fade away due to overuse of the joint (This normally means it fades over time, but it can also mean that it is overused through intense activities such as sports.)
The facet joints are what give the back the freedom of flexibility, but over time these joints can be worn down. This often causes pain in the neck and back joints.
At home, you can help your joint pain by avoiding any intense stress or pressure being put on your joint. You can try some small and simple exercises to strengthen your joint. You could also try an ice pack, to take down the swelling (if there is any swelling). If pain persists, you can get an over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as naproxen sodium (Aleve), Ibuprofen (Advil), or aspirin. If pain still persists or you believe your joint pain may be a sign of something worse, then you should contact Pegasus Pain Management to see what treatment is right for you.
