How to Treat Septic Arthritis?

Medical Treatment:
  • Septic arthritis is treated by antibiotics
  • Antibiotics are directly given into a vein. You will stay in the hospital for at least two weeks
  • For a few days, you may need to rest in bed to remove pressure from the affected joint. Medication will be given to alleviate the pain
  • Also, have the fluid drained from your infected joint using a needle and syringe, or during a procedure called an arthroscopy
