Joint pain is usually more common in people who are either old or have suffered from an injury that hurt their joints. In some cases, joint pain can also be a symptom of osteoarthritis and thereof should be taken seriously. The most common joint of the body that is diagnosed with pain is mostly knee. People can hurt knee while playing a game outdoors, falling down the stairs etc.
As the knee takes the full weight of your body, it is more prone to have pain. It also needs to be noted that not every knee pain comes under the category of joint pain. When an individual falls on a hard surface, thin layer of tissues that line the joints and tendons can become inflamed. This results in pain in the joints. Joint pain can hinder your daily activities like walking, using your hands etc.
