Joint inflammation Overview

Joint inflammation is an inflammatory reaction inside any of the body’s joints. Symptoms typically include joint pain, joint swelling, joint redness, joint warmth, and similar symptoms.

Inflammation may result from joint injury, joint overuse, joint disorders (e.g. arthritis), or other joint conditions. Joint infection is a slightly different symptom, but it may also cause joint inflammation. Any of the body’s joints may be inflamed, and there are also a number of systemic inflammatory conditions that may cause widespread inflammation of multiple joints.
