Muscle and joint pain

About

Muscle and joint pain are a common symptom that can affect different parts of the body. They are sometimes referred to as body aches. Pain can be reflected in the muscles, like the chest, abdominal, back, and limbs, and in the joints like the shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, knees, and ankles. Suffering from muscle or joint pain can dramatically decrease the quality of life.

Causes of Muscle and joint pain

Common causes of muscle and joint pain include injury or overuse of the muscles or joints. However, it can also be due to other conditions or factors:

  • Poor posture.
  • Repetitive motions.
  • Muscle strains.
  • Intensive sports.
  • Injuries to muscle, tendon, cartilage, bone, etc.
  • Dislocation of joints.
  • Diseases including arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, and nerve compression syndromes.
  • Other medical conditions (influenza, gout, other infection/inflammation, etc).

Red light therapy is a form of phototherapy that uses infrared light to help reduce pain in muscles and joints. It has the ability to increase circulation in the affected area by increasing blood flow to it. This increased circulation helps to promote faster healing due to increased oxygen flow and nutrient delivery as well as reduced inflammation. This process aids in relieving muscle and joint pain.
