Joint pain may be a sign of osteoarthritis, injury or overuse, an inflammatory process in the body or a chronic pain syndrome such as fibromyalgia. Different types of arthritis affect different parts of the body and so the location of the joint pain is very helpful in determining a diagnosis. Patient age and family history also contribute largely to the risk of developing different types of arthritis and joint pain. It is important to determine the cause of joint pain before selecting an appropriate treatment.
