Joint Injuries Can Severely Impact Your Life

Your joints are some of the most versatile parts of your body. However, the ligaments and tendons surrounding your shoulders, knees, ankles and other joints are also among the most vulnerable to serious injury. Joints are necessary for the most basic activities, and if they are damaged, it can impact all aspects of your life. According to the United States National Library of Medicine, joint injuries frequently occur as a result of crashes, falls or accidents on the job. These injuries may include:

  • A tear in the cartilage protecting the joint
  • A sprain or strain, which involves overstretching the ligaments or tendons
  • Bruised or chipped joint bones
  • Dislocations or fractures

As a weight-bearing joint, your knees are particularly susceptible to chronic pain and disability, according to the Mayo Clinic. The same is true for your shoulders. Shoulder injuries can be complex and require long-term care. After a joint injury, your treatment might require rest and immobilization for several days or weeks. A more serious injury could involve physical therapy or surgery.
