Increased joint or muscle pain can happen if you have injury that is caused by an acute event, such as being involved in a car accident, having an accident or getting in a fight. It can happen with or without an obvious injury. Even if you have an injury that has healed, you could have a temporary flare-up of pain and become more susceptible to another injury if you’re not careful.
Joint or muscle soreness and stiffness can be part of your life if you’ve done too much activity in a short period of time. You can develop arthritis, which is usually a long-term condition. You can also get muscle cramps, which are usually short-lived, although sometimes they can be more serious than that.
Muscle soreness and stiffness might not be a problem in itself. But some people might suffer from these symptoms when they exercise too much, too soon after being injured or overdoing it and being careless.
Staying active can be the best things you can do for your health. It keeps you feeling good, helps you prevent health problems and might help you live longer.
But there are certain precautions you should take if you want to keep your muscles and joints healthy.
The key is to find out how your body is going to respond to exercise.
This is going to depend on what you’re working out with, how often you’re working out and how much activity you do.
If you’re not sure, talk to your doctor or a physical therapist.
