Causes of it could be external trauma, excessive sports activities, repetitive stress injuries, inactivity and poor posture, poor daily lifestyle habits, long term exposure to coldness or ingestion of cold food, age-related degeneration of bones at the joints (like spondylosis, osteophytes, etc), lack of sleep, malnutrition, etc.
