Joint and muscle problems can be caused due to disorders of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bursae, or a combination. Injuries are the most common cause of pain and joint or muscle problems. Arthritis is one of the most common causes of joint pain. Muscle pain is less intense in comparison to joint pain. Joint and muscle problems restrict body movements that are quiet uncomfortable for the person to perform normal activities.

They will diagnose the condition and suggest appropriate treatment for the underlying cause of the joint and muscle problem. In certain cases the joint pain is caused due to another disorder in the organ of the body eg shoulder pain may be due to lung disorder, back pain may be due to kidney stone, abdominal pain may be due to inflammation of pancreas or pelvic disorders, arm pain may be caused due to heart attack. The specialist will diagnose the condition and suggest further testing which may include blood tests, x-rays, CT scan, MRI, etc. Generally the initial treatment for joint pain includes cold applications and lots of rest along with medications to provide relief from pain.
