Joint Pain Location
Pain in a joint that isn't the direct result of an injury is most likely caused by arthritis, particularly in adults. The most common type of arthritis causing joint pain is osteoarthritis - most commonly in the hip and knee joints - although other arthritis types can also cause pain in one or more joints.

Shoulder arthritis is usually caused by degeneration, falling injuries, and inflammatory arthritis conditions. Signs of shoulder arthritis are limited range of motion, tenderness, and gradual increases in pain.
Knee pain from arthritis is usually due to osteoarthritis, although it could also be rheumatoid arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis. Symptoms of knee osteoarthritis usually come and go, and can include aches, stiffness, swelling and periodic flare-ups of intense pain.
Arthritis in the hip is usually from osteoarthritis, auto-immune changes, or brought on by injury. The hip pain felt may be a dull ache in the thigh or groin or a quick, stabbing pain where there is movement.
