Joint pain is one of the most common ailments people of all ages struggle with. Whether you’re very active and push your body to the limit or you’re simply of older age and your body has begun showing signs of wear, joint pain is something everyone will deal with eventually. There are countless therapies, natural remedies, exercises, and health products which have helped many people fight the joint pain they experience on a regular basis. In terms of over the counter products, Osmoflex is one of the best choices for relieving joint pain, and it does so by incorporating a variety of different supplements which are well known, and not so well known. Let’s learn a little bit more about joint pain, some of its causes, and potential remedies.
What Causes Joint Pain?
There are many different potential causes for joint pain, the most common being injury to the ligaments, tendons and surrounding tissue, as well as joint inflammation, otherwise known as arthritis. Here are a few others, which are less common:
- ACL or MCL Tears
- Cartilage Tears
Aside from the typical injury or medical condition causing joint pain, aging of the human body eventually takes it toll and can result in minor, moderate, or severe pain in your joints. Typically the first areas you will begin to notice joint pain will be in the load bearing joints of your body (knees, ankles and hips). These areas experience the most friction within the joint, which over time can result in degradation of the cartilage, ligaments, tendons and bones.
In addition to this, as your body ages, the natural joint lubricants your body produces (synovial fluids) begin to produce in lower amounts, resulting in increased friction between the articular cartilages of synovial joints. This eventually leads to joint pain.
What are the Symptoms of Joint Pain?
Joint pain can appear in different forms, but common symptoms include acute pain in a localized area, swelling of the joints, stiffness in your joints, decreased range of motion, inability to put weight on joints and also increased warmth in the specific location.
In addition to the above common symptoms, there are a number of symptoms which would seem unrelated to joint pain, but can also occur. Some of these include abdominal pain, aching muscles, dry mouth, fatigue, fever and rash. Regardless of the joint pain symptoms you experience, the treatment options for joint pain are very similar, and typically vary based on location the pain is occurring.
Treatments for Joint Pain
Most joint pain that is a result of overuse can be resolved by simply resting the affected areas. If your knees or other load bearing joints are the problematic area, staying off your feet for a few days can often be all that’s needed for a full recovery. Depending on the severity of the joint pain, NSAID pain relievers like ibuprofen can be used to reduce inflammation, which can speed up the healing process when taken in conjunction with rest.
Aside from rest, other treatment options for joint pain include warm baths, massage, regular stretching of the affected area. For more severe cases, physical therapy may be required, as well as a procedure called arthrocentesis, a method by which fluid is removed from the joint.
Key Ingredients for Joint Health
The human body produces a wide range of chemicals, vitamins, minerals and other substances that promote the health of your bones, joints and connective tissues. Deficiencies in these substances can lead to increased risk of joint pain. Some of the most helpful supplements for joint health include:
- Glucosamine – helps form and repair cartilage
- Chondroitin Sulfate – gives cartilage elasticity
- MSM – amino acid with anti-inflammatory properties
- Magnesium Sulfate – stabilizes cortisol production/relaxes muscles
