Joints are the parts of your body where your bones meet. Joints allow

the bones of your skeleton to move. Joints include:

  • shoulders
  • hips
  • elbows
  • knees

Joint pain refers to discomfort, aches, and soreness in any of the

body’s joints. Joint pain is a common complaint. It doesn’t typically

require a hospital visit.

Sometimes, joint pain is the result of an illness or injury. Arthritis

is also a common cause of joint pain. However, it can also be due to

other conditions or factors.

What causes joint pain?


One of the most common causes of joint pain is arthritis. The two

main forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

According to the American College of Rheumatology, OA is most

common in adults over age 40. It progresses slowly and tends to affect

commonly used joints like the:

  • wrists
  • hands
  • hips
  • knees

Joint pain due to OA results from a breakdown of the cartilage

that serves as a cushion and shock absorber for the joints.

The second form of arthritis is RA. According to the Arthritis Foundation,

RA affects about 1.5 million Americans. It more commonly affects

women than men.

It can deform and debilitate the joints over time. RA causes pain,

inflammation, and fluid buildup in the joints as the body’s immune system

attacks the membrane that lines the joints.

Other causes

Joint pain can be caused by:

  • bursitis, or inflammation of the cushioning pads around joints
  • lupus
  • gout
  • certain infectious diseases, such as mumpsinfluenza, and hepatitis
  • chondromalacia of the patella, or a breakdown of the cartilage
  •  in the kneecap
  • an injury
  • tendinitis, or inflammation of the tendon
  • an infection of the bone or joint
  • overuse of a joint
  • cancer
  • fibromyalgia
  • osteoporosis
  • sarcoidosis
  • rickets

What are the symptoms of joint pain?

In some cases, your joint pain will require you to see a doctor.

You should make an appointment if you don’t know the cause of

your joint pain and are experiencing other unexplained symptoms.

You should also see a doctor if:

  • the area around the joint is swollen, red, tender, or warm to 
  • the touch
  • the pain persists for three days or more
  • you have a fever but no other signs of the flu

Go to the emergency room if any of the following occurs:

  • You’ve experienced a serious injury.
  • The joint appears deformed.
  • Swelling of the joint occurs suddenly.
  • The joint is completely immobile.
  • You have severe joint pain.

How is joint pain diagnosed?

Your doctor will probably perform a physical exam. They’ll also

ask you a series of questions about your joint pain. This may help

to narrow down the potential causes.

A joint X-ray may be necessary to identify arthritis-related joint damage.

If your doctor suspects there’s another cause, they may order a blood

test to screen for certain autoimmune disorders. They may also request

a sedimentation rate test to measure the level of inflammation in the

body or a complete blood count.
