Chronic Joint Pain

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.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • let The Analyst™ find what's wrong
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)

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.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate joint problems, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Do you suffer from chronic pain from any joint in your body that is associated with a past injury or abuse?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Yes, mild pain that comes and goes
→ Yes, usually mild pain / occasionally moderate
→ Yes, usually moderate pain / occasionally severe
→ Yes, usually/always severe pain
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either joint pain from injury or severe joint pain from injury, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Torn, weak, or Stretched Ligaments or Tendons.
