Bone, Muscle, and Joint Problems

I don't deserve this award, but then I have arthritis and I don't deserve that either.
Jack Benny

Our aches and pains remind us that life isn't always easy. But pain can be managed. This chapter covers pain from arthritis to plantar fasciitis. As with most chapters in this book, we hope you rarely have to refer to these pages. But when you do, we hope these guidelines will make your life more comfortable.

In many cases, you can determine the cause of bone, muscle, or joint problems by thinking back to how or when the pain started.
