Joint inflammation Overview
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.
