Hip, Knee, Shoulder & Foot Pain

Introduction

Pain in various areas of the body, such as the hip, knee, foot or shoulder, may be triggered by a number of factors including:

• Injury due to falls, contact sports or motor vehicle accidents 
• Over-use/activity
• Degeneration of joints due to age or genetics
• Disease

The pain can come on slowly or it could be a sudden onset. Additionally, it can be intermittent or constant and can range from mild to severe.

While pain of this type can resolve on its own in time, medical attention should be sought in instances where the pain does not improve in several weeks or if the pain causes weakness, tingling or numbness in other joints.
