What are the causes and symptoms of damaged joints?
Damaged joints are the result of various causes, including:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis – With rheumatoid arthritis, the patient will begin to feel the pain when the swelling starts and when the cartilage begins to thin and degrade. Depending on the severity of your arthritis, you may have more joint damage than someone with the same condition.
- Osteoarthritis – Through general wear and tear of the cartilage and the bones of the joint, osteoarthritis begins to severely damage the joints.
- Injuries – In some cases, joint injuries lead to osteoarthritis. In other cases, the joint may become damaged due to overuse, a slip and fall injury, a car accident, a sports injury, and other similar types of injuries.
Because joint damage is different for each person, the symptoms will be different as well. Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Increasing pain in the joint after completing a movement
- Tenderness after even light pressure has been applied to the joint
- Bone spurs that form around the joint
- The inability to move the joint as far as it should go
- Stiff joints after inactivity, specifically after sleep
- The sound or feeling of grating of the joint
