There are many possible reasons why your joints hurt. It could be as simple as excessive physical activity, like strenuous exercise or physical labor, which puts stress on muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints and irritates them. If the activity is rugged enough, an injury like strains, sprains and even dislocations of the joints can occur and cause pain.
However, there are also various conditions that bring about pain in the joints. Here we will explore what these conditions are and why they cause joint pain. Of course, it is always best to consult a medical professional if you are having physical issues.
