Joints connect your bones and allow movement. Pain or discomfort in your joints can be caused by injury, inflammation, or infection of your joints or surrounding ligaments and tendons. While joint pain can affect any part of the body, knee pain is the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain.

- Persistent pain
- Swelling or tenderness
