Joint pain can be excruciating in many cases involving sports or accident injuries. Degenerative joint pain is another form, which is painful and can seriously reduce our ability to get around. We depend upon our joints for mobility of movement and leading an active life, more generally. The largest joint in the body is the hip. There are crucial joints at the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and ankle. The human body has 206 individual bones and these bones are connected by joints. There are 6 types of joints, which are categorised as freely movable. There are fibrous and cartilaginous joints, which are mostly fixed in place, and synovial joints, which allow movement via the synovial fluid. These moveable joints have sacs, called bursars, which cushion the cartilage and prevent rubbing between them. Many sports fans are familiar with the failing knee joints of footballers, as they are well discussed in the media – those ACL and ICL injuries. Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and Interior Cruciate Ligament (ICL) are key ligaments which stabilise the knee joint. Joints are important structural components; and joint pain is no laughing matter.
