Lifting heavy objects can strain your muscles, or sprain tendons or ligaments that can cause minor back pain or injuries. Back injuries commonly develop in the lower back or lumbar region. And where there is injury, there is pain. You may experience pain immediately or gradually over a few days.
Repetitive motion and strenuous physical activities, such as throwing a ball or lifting heavy objects, can cause neck & shoulder pain. It’s a result of strained muscles, tendons or ligaments. Pain is usually felt at the point of injury and symptoms may also include stiffness and soreness. Mostly, it can be relieved within a few days. Most minor neck & shoulder injuries can be treated at home using the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. But in some cases, neck pain can indicate serious injury or illness and require a doctor’s care.
From a minor fall to mild twisting of the joint, several things can cause strain (eventually tear or damage) in your muscles, tendons or ligaments resulting in minor knee pain. These injuries are common with contact sports and can produce immediate sharp pain, bruising, or swelling. Some people are more likely to develop knee problems than others.
An ankle sprain occurs when ligaments tear, or get overstretched, usually through excessive stress in that area. One or more ligaments can be injured during a sprain. An ankle sprain is one of the most common causes of ankle pain, being mainly caused by sudden twisting, turning, or rolling movements of the ankle. Pain will depend on the severity of the injury – whether there is a partial or complete tear, and whether one or more ligaments are involved. Treatment usually involves rest, ice, compression and immobilization of the ankle.
Muscle pain results after you strain muscles, or sprain tendons or ligaments in any part of your body. A muscle injury is usually stated as a “pulled” muscle, or “Charley Horse,” and might result from taking part in sports or different recreational activities. Pain is sometimes felt at the point of injury and symptoms may include swelling, bruising, cramping and soreness.
Elbow pain is a sharp, dull, or burning pain that can be intermittent, constant, or shooting. Its causes can be a strain, sprain, fracture, dislocation, infection, autoimmune condition, cancer, or trauma to the structures in and adjacent to the elbow joint.
Wrist pain symptoms can vary depending on the cause. Some people may have pain that they describe as achy or dull; others may have pain that is sharp. The location of the pain can also vary. Whether it’s swelling, bruising, numbness, tingling, or weakness of the hand, a doctor’s consult is important.
Headaches are the most common medical complaint and could be due to any reason, ranging from stress to high blood pressure. Primarily, headaches include migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches. Primary headaches are caused directly by activity in the brain like the blood vessels, muscles, and nerves of the head and neck. Secondary headaches are caused due to an underlying reason like alcohol induced hangover, brain tumor, blood clots, concussion, dehydration and influenza.
