Bones, Muscles & Joint Problems
Everyone has had minor bone, muscle, or joint injuries at one time or another. Most of the time our body movements do not cause problems, but it’s not surprising that symptoms develop from everyday wear and tear, overuse, or injury. Bone, muscle, or joint injuries most commonly occur during sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks, or doing projects around the home.
