Joints Swelling

Joints Swelling

Soft tissues surround and cushion joints, which connect two or more bones in your body. When these tissues fill up with fluid, swelling occurs. It may be accompanied by pain or stiffness. Moreover, your affected joint may appear larger than normal or have an irregular shape. Inflammation of the joints can be caused by illnesses, such as arthritis, or by injuries that need medical attention, such as dislocations.

Causes 

  • Bone fractures
  • Infectious (Septic) Arthritis
  • Rheumatic Fever
  • Damage to the cartilage, tendons, and ligaments in your joints
  • Uric acid
  • Spondylitis
  • Fluid-filled sacs found about your joints
  • Rheumatic Fever
  • Infectious (Septic) Arthritis.

Diagnosis and Treatment

 

During your first visit with your doctor, they’ll likely ask about your medical history and symptoms. Depending on the underlying cause of your symptoms, your doctor will recommend a treatment plan.

Simple at-home treatments can ease your symptoms if your joint swelling occurred following an injury. If swelling occurs in an affected joint, apply ice or a cold pack for 10 minutes at a time, wrapped in a cloth. Wrap or bandage the joint to provide compression. When you’re resting, raise your joint above your heart as much as possible. You can take pain medications over-the-counter to relieve discomfort.
