Infection: Septic arthritis is an intensely painful infection in a joint. This infection can occur either through blood born germs coming in contact with the joint, or as the result of germ exposure through a direct penetrating injury. Treatment includes draining the joint either with needle injection or surgical means. Intravenous antibiotics may also be necessary.
