Muscle Pain: Symptoms, Causes & Treatment

Muscle Pain

  • Muscles are responsible for the movement of the human body.
  • Muscle pain usually occurs due to the straining or spraining of muscle tissues
  • Muscle pain affects everyone at some point in their lives.

What is muscle pain?

Muscle pain is an extremely common condition that can cause discomfort and hamper mobility, affecting your daily chores. Since we possess muscle tissue in almost all parts of our body, muscle pain can affect any part. While there is no single reason for muscle aches and pains, strains and sprains are common causes.

What are the signs and symptoms of muscle pain?

Muscle pain due to Sprains

A sprain is caused by overstretching or tearing of ligaments (tissues connecting two bones in a joint).


  • Bruising
  • Pain around the affected joint
  • Swelling
  • Difficulty in using the joint’s full range of motion

Muscle pain due to Strains

A strain on a muscle can occur due to overworking or overstretching, resulting in tearing of the muscle or tendons (cords of tissues connecting muscles to bones).


  • Inflammation
  • Muscle spasm
  • Muscle weakness
  • Pain
  • Swelling

What are the causes of muscle pain?

The common causes for muscle pain are:

  • Walking or exercising on an uneven surface (leads to pain in the feet)
  • Overexertion while playing sports
  • Falling and landing hard on an outstretched limb (a common cause of wrist pain)
  • Sitting for long periods
  • Prolonged and repetitive movement of muscle

How to get rid of muscle pain?

  • The R.I.C.E. method (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) typically helps with symptoms such as pain and inflammation.
  • The first step to treating muscle pain, soreness, stiffness, sprain, or strain is to reduce inflammation and pain.

Muscle pain treatment usually involves applying sprays and ointments, such as Moov STRONG.
