Whether it is above or below the joint it still effects the joint when moving

Muscle Origin and Insertion determine your function.

The body is full of levers, they allow us to compete at the highest levels and perform big feats of strengths. When one aspect muscle is compromised along the chain above or below that joint we then run into joint issues that we blame the joint for. This is when things such as bone spurs develop, osteo arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis or tendonosis start to occur. This compromised muscle can also lead to major injuries such as grade II or III strains of the muscle as well ligament damage in the case of long term dysfunctional along the chain.

Prevention

One of the fastest ways to prevent one these injuries from happening is to learn proper form when lifting. If the incorrect muscles are performing a movement such as deadlift or a squat then we have a big injury waiting to happen.

Second is to make sure you have the proper mobility to perform a movement. Just because you can do an ass to grass squat or grab your fingers behind your back means you are mobile, on the contrary. That presents another problem in itself. We need to be able to stabilize through the ranges of motions that we use when lifting or performing an athletic movement. We can get this through a mixture of self-myofacial release aka foam rolling, stretching and anchoring the flexibility gained with stability drills.
