A dull persistent pain. Aches in joints or in muscles generally occur when blood flow to them has been reduced. Maintaining a static posture requires constant muscular contraction which can lead to fatigue and ache. Another common cause of ache is lack of motion. If a joint is restricted in its motion, the natural consequence is that it will begin to ache. Moving an achey joint will stretch the muscles connected to it and stimulate blood flow to the area. In today's workplace, using a computer requires very little motion and therefore commonly causes aches. Read more about how Desk Doctor software offers a solution to achey muscles and joints.
