Joint pain is extremely common and may result from disease or injury.

Knee, shoulder and hip pain is the most common but joint pain can affect any part of your body, from your jaw to your ankles. As you get older, painful joints become more common.

Joint pain can range from mildly irritating to debilitating. It may go away after a few weeks (acute), or last for several weeks or months (chronic). Even short-term pain and swelling in the joints can affect your quality of life. Whatever the cause of joint pain, it can usually be managed.
