Diseases Affecting the Joints
- 11 Months ago
Pain at any joint in the body will make life difficult, although diseases affecting the smaller joints of the body can be equally painful and disturbing.
Osteoarthritis: It is a chronic degenerative disease which can affect any joint but leg pain occurs when it involves the hips, knees, and low back area. There is pain in the joints during and after movement such as walking, stiffness of the joints (especially on getting up in the morning or after a period of inactivity), and restriction of joint mobility.
