My toes, My knees, My shouder, My head... PAIN

My toe my knees my shoulder my head, this is one of my favorite nursery rhyme when i was a kid but know that I'm not getting any younger pain in my toes knees shoulder and head appears. here are some list of this common pains what are their causes how it feels and its treatment and prevention.

My toes (feet) - How it feels? Everyone gets aching feet after a long day, but burning, tingling numbness, or pain under the heel and around the arch that affects only one foot can have a different cause. What could have cause it? Tarsal tunnel syndrome, the foot version of carpal tunnel syndrome, is most common in people with flt feet. Plantar fasciitis or "policeman's foot" an inflammation around the heel bone caused by abnormalities in the way you walk, is also a common.
Treatment and prevention - Arch supports and wider shoes may help tarsal tunnel syndrome. Steroid injections can relieve symptoms in severe cases. Ensure that shoes fit well, avoid standing for long periods, and always warm up properly before exercising.

My knees - How it feels? Stiff and swollen joints make it difficult to bend or straighten the knee. Symptoms are often worse in the morning or a period of inactivity. What could have cause it? Knee joints are often affected by arthritis. Knee bursitis or housemaid knee, can develop when fluid filled bursa sac around your joint become inflamed through an infection or is irritated by too much movement.
Treatment and prevention - Stay active but avoid repetitive movements that aggravate the problem. Fish oil supplements have been shown to help relieve the pain and swelling of arthritis. Glucosamine supplements often help too.

My shoulder - How it feels? An achy pain that you notice after particular activities. You may also find that your movement is restricted. What could have cause it? Any kind of overuse can stress the shoulder joint. Shoulder muscles can become strained or tendons can become inflamed. Frozen shoulder develops when you avoid moving your shoulder because of another pain or injury.
Treatment and prevention - Over the counter pain killers can help reduce inflammation and pain. Keep the shoulder joint flexible by practicing gentle mobilizing exercises. Try slowly rolling each shoulder back in turn. See your doctor if the problem persists.

My head - How it feels? Pain and tightness that extends over your head. What could have cause it? Tension headaches are the result of tight, contracted muscles in the neck, scalp,and jaw. Possible causes: stress, anxiety, missing meals, holding your head in one position for a long time.
Treatment and prevention - Treat symptoms with over the counter painkiller such as ibuprofen. Reduce stress levels. Eat regular meals and drink enough water. Adjust your office chair and car seat so you avoid straining your neck muscle.
