Joint pains due to torture


Victims of torture frequently suffer from pains in their joints. Connecting tissue may have been destroyed, torn or damaged in some way, limbs or other bones may have been pulled out of their sockets by being hung or through mechanical means, bones may have been broken, and joints may have been damaged due to stress from prolonged standing, squatting or other uncomfortable positions.
