Synovitis Discussion

Joint inflammation or synovitis is common with arthritis, after a joint injury or for other obvious reasons. In addition, many cases of synovitis simply reflect the patient's underlying predisposition to the aches and pains of life, activity and ageing. Treatment options include antiinflammatory medication, heat, ice, topical analgesics, therapy, splinting or local cortisone injection into the joint. Problems include persistent soreness and possible recurrent episodes in the future.
