Bones and joints can have varying degrees of pain and conditions. Bone pain usually occurs inside the bone, whereas joint pain occurs at the connections between two bones. Bone pain is usually a dull sensation, and people who suffer from it cannot easily pinpoint it. Joint pain, on the other hand, is easier to pinpoint, as the pain is localized. Joint pain could be a discomfort in the joints of the shoulder, hips, knees, jaw, hands, feet, elbows, back and ankles.
