As such, a consultation with a GP is usually necessary to discover the root cause of your aches and pains.
Our doctors can discuss your symptoms - as well as your lifestyle and medical history - and get to the bottom of what might be causing your aches and pains.
Many cases of joint pain can be cured by rest or medication, while others may require a change in your routines to prevent the problem from cropping up again.
Our doctors will likely need to ask a few questions to find the reason for your joint pain.
They'll ask about your symptoms and may want to find out a little about your lifestyle - for example, whether you have a physically demanding job.
They'll use this information to provide practical treatment advice that'll help you manage your joint pain. This can involve referring you to a specialist, or prescribing medication.
