What Causes Chronic Joint Pain?
Chronic joint pain can have various causes, just like most other symptoms. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose chronic joint pain, we could:
- Research the topic
- Find a doctor with the time
- Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.
Step 1: List all Possible Causes
We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "chronic joint pain" as a symptom. For example, weak ligaments-tendons.
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause.
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of chronic joint pain.
