Joint stiffness is the sensation of difficulty felt on moving a joint or the apparent loss of range of motion of a joint. Joint stiffness often accompanies joint pain and/or swelling. Aching and stiffness can be caused by injury or disease of the joint and is a common finding in arthritis conditions. Joint damage including stiffness can also occur following injury to the joint. Sometimes injuries or inflammation of the adjacent areas, such as bursae, can cause pain that may limit the movement of a joint and be perceived as joint stiffness. Joint pain is also referred to as arthralgia.

You may come across with the following conditions:

Pain on movement is commonly caused by osteoarthritis, often in quite minor degrees, and other forms of arthritis. It may also be caused by injury or overuse and rarely by more complex causes of pain such as infection or neoplasm. The range of motion may be normal or limited by pain. "Morning stiffness" pain which eases up after the joint has been used is characteristic of Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Loss of motion: The patient notices that the joint does not move as far as they used to or needed to. Loss of motion is a feature of more advanced stages of arthritis including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis.

For non-arthritis joint pain, both rest and exercise are important. Warm baths, massage, and stretching exercises should be done as frequently as possible. In case of arthritis the treatment will be given accordingly.
