Symptom – Are you experiencing bone pain?
Bone pain refers to tenderness, aching, or discomfort in a bone or multiple bones. It is normally still prominent, even without movement or pressure on the affected area.
What is causing your bone pain?
There are many different reasons as to why you may be experiencing bone pain. Bone pain can be caused by injury, cancer, or other diseases. Injury, such as a fracture or partial break, can cause the bone to ache. Normally, you will experience a sudden and intense pain at the time of the break. Bone cancer can cause destruction to the bone’s natural structure – causing pain. Specifically, leukemia causes bone pain in the legs.
Infection is another reason you may be experiencing bone pain. Osteomyelitis is a rare infection that occurs in the bone tissue.
How can you relieve your bone pain?
The best thing you can do is get a proper diagnosis from your family doctor. If it is an infection, they can start you on antibiotics. If it is a fracture, you can get the proper treatment – ensuring an efficient healing and recovery process.
Massage therapy can help soothe tight muscles and pain associated with bone pain. Massage also promotes blood flow – encouraging the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
