Conditions & Treatments

It's not uncommon to have aches and pains in our bones, joints and muscles. They may be caused by daily wear and tear, overuse or aging. Or they may be a result of injury or illness.

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out exactly what's causing a muscle ache or joint pain. For example, sore muscles and aches could be the result of a hard workout routine — or they could be a sign of a more serious problem such as chronic pain or arthritis. It's important to know what is affecting you so you can treat it correctly.


Many people with arthritis can be treated with pain medications, lifestyle modifications and sometimes medicines to prevent disease progression.
