Muscle and joint pain

Muscular pain is a “warning sign” for a pathological condition caused by a disorder in any of the structures forming part of the musculoskeletal system. In daily practice, the most common causes of muscular pain are muscle contracture, cramp and stiffness.

Pain in the joints or arthralgia

Pain in the joints or arthralgia refers to pain in a joint, i.e., in the structure binding two bones, formed by the capsule, ligaments, synovial membrane and joint cartilage. Any disorder in any of these elements may cause pain in the joints. There are multiple causes of joint pain, including injuries such as bursitis, sprains, and dislocations and subdislocations, but also rheumatic diseases such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or gout.


Pain is the main symptom to be able to recognise any locomotor system disease. Medical visits for muscle and joint pain are increasingly common as a result of the increased practice of sports, particularly by people not used to physical exercise. On the other hand, our present lifestyle, even at work, leads to a number of muscle and joint injuries due to overload.
