Chronic joint pain is an extremely common yet debilitating medical condition. Unlike acute pain, living with chronic joint pain is a lifetime battle. Joint pain develops when the connection between your bones is affected, limiting your mobility, in this case, for a long time.
Chronic muscle and joint pain is often associated with old age. But, it’s possible for young adults to develop the same due to their improper lifestyle or genetics.
