Symptoms of Joint Injury & Disease
Pain, whether mild or severe, sharp or dull, is the most common symptom of damaged joints. Joint warmth, stiffness, swelling, and difficulty moving your joints are other signs of a joint disease.
Fractures and joint dislocations present more obvious signs, such as a noticeable deformity. It’s also common to experience muscle aches, tenderness, and bruising after a joint injury.
For some joint diseases, such as arthritis, symptoms can be persistent and require ongoing, supportive care.
