Measuring the 'Weighty' Impact of Joint Pain
Joints form the connections between bones. They provide support, help you move, and are often the source of pain.
Damage to your cells by exertion, disease or energy can keep you sidelined.
From your ankles and feet to your shoulders and hands, joint pain can occur in any part of your body—and with more than one-third of adults reporting joint pain, it’s a condition to be taken seriously.
Joint pain can range from uncomfortable to debilitating, disappearing after a few days (acute), or lasting for several weeks or months (chronic).
Even short-term pain and swelling in the joints can affect your quality of life.
