Joints are no different than bones and muscles when it comes to being susceptible to pathological conditions. Some of these conditions are adhesive capsulitis, arthritis, ganglion, gout, Lyme disease, and osteoarthritis. All of these conditions have treatment options, but first, a medical professional may have to use one or many diagnostic techniques to determine the next step. These techniques include, but are not limited to, arthrocentesis (needle puncture; fluid removal), arthrography (X-ray using contrast), and rheumatoid factor (blood test).
