Chronic joint pain: An equal opportunity illness

There are many factors that can trigger chronic joint pain, including trauma, disease, and age. One rarely discussed aspect of chronic joint pain is its indiscriminate appearance: Chronic joint pain can affect both rich and poor, the famous and the unknown.

To those suffering from this debilitating condition, it may not seem like much of a consolation but here are just a few well-known people who experience chronic joint pain:

  • Kathleen Turner - The star of "Body Heat," and "Crimes of Passion," as well as the TV father of character "Chandler Bing" in the hit show "Friends," Turner experienced her symptoms before her 40th birthday and has had multiple surgeries to help alleviate her pain.
  • Patrick Stewart - He has starred on the stage and in films, but is best known as Capt. Jean Luc Picard in Star Trek The Next Generation. Stewart's joint pain is primarily located in his hands.
  • James Coburn - His long list of movie appearances include the James Bond-inspired "Our Man Flint," and "In Like Flint," plus "The Magnificent Seven" and 'The Great Escape" but his career was almost ended due to chronic joint pain. Coburn told ABC News, " “There was so much pain that … every time I stood up, I would break into a sweat.”
  • Shaquille O’Neal - The retired NBA star is particularly susceptible to joint pain due to his large height and girth, which puts undue strain on weight bearing joints such as ankles and knees.
  •  Wayne Gretzky - Perhaps the greatest hockey player of all time, Gretzky began to experience severe joint pain at age 38. After his diagnosis, Gretzky said, “I didn’t think people my age had arthritis. Now I want to help others realize that arthritis pain is not restricted to the elderly and effective treatment is available.”
  • Tatum O'Neal - The daughter of well-known actor Ryan O'Neal is the youngest female actor to win an Oscar for Best Performance for her portrayal of Addie Loggins in "Paper Moon," O'Neal stressed the need for a positive attitude and the support of friends and family.

A positive attitude is important. So is ReJoint.

O'Neal's practice of staying positive through the battle with chronic joint pain is important, but for most people, it is not enough.
