Septic arthritis is a joint infection. Germs from another part of the body enter the joint. In fact, it is a very painful condition.
There are several types of arthritis but rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common. The inflammation of the joints with this disease cause pain, immobility, and can interfere with your daily activities. There are medications that can help reduce inflammation and slow the progression of the disease down, but once joint damage is severe, these drugs will no longer be effective. Surgery may be the best option at this time.
Our knees help us do our everyday activities, from cleaning the house to playing those sports we love. When you experience a torn meniscus the symptoms are similar to that of knee osteoarthritis. Thus, making it hard to locate the pain source.
