What is Joint Pain?
Your knees, shoulders, elbows, and ankles are all joints that are susceptible to injury, damage, and pain. Pain from these joints usually stems from the damage of ligaments, tendons, cartilage bursae, and/or conjoining bones. Although joint pain is not usually a critical condition, it can severely limit a sufferer from mobility and performing daily tasks and activities. Joints allow our limbs and extremities to move freely, so it can be frustrating when those movements are restrained by pain.

- Joint locking
