What causes joints to swell?

Joint pain is often accompanied by redness and swelling – but why is this? Our joints are cushioned by soft tissue, and swelling is created when fluid accumulates in this tissue.

If you suffer from arthritis, the area around your joints may feel warm and/or appear red and puffy/ swollen.2 Swollen joints could be a symptom of arthritis, or an injury. To understand why your joints are swollen we recommend talking to a doctor or healthcare professional.1

Some of the areas swelling could occur are:

  • Hands
  • Wrists
  • Feet
  • Ankles
  • Knees
  • Hips
  • Shoulders
  • Elbows
  • Neck

Swollen joints can often make it harder to perform ordinary day to day tasks, which can be frus-trating! Excessive swelling may also cause a reduced range of motion around the joint.3

Treatments for swollen joints

– Taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen.4

– Using a cold pack for around 20 minutes.4
