Nowadays, due to the changing environment and changes in routine, most people are falling prey to arthritis. One of these is septic arthritis. Like an infection, it spreads from one part of the body to another. Mostly the problem of septic arthritis is seen in those people who have had an injury in the past, have had surgery or have had injections because through all these, the infection spreads through the blood to the joints of the body. Hence, it is also called infectious arthritis.


What is Septic Arthritis?

Septic arthritis is an infection of the joints. This infection mainly reaches the joints through injury or blood due to which problems like pain, swelling and redness in the joints start arising which affects different joints of the body.

Also, the skin of the joints turns red during septic arthritis. Usually, only one joint of the person suffering from it is affected but in severe cases, there may be problems in various joints of the body (knees, hips, etc.) due to which unbearable pain starts in the joints.
