I suggest you get him to a specialist who can do a thorough physical examination and also send him for some tests to determine the exact cause of his joint pains. Inflammation is not similar to infection, but it means that there is an inflammatory process (causing e.g. redness, swellin, pain) for some or other reason and a joint specialist (rheumatologist) will be the best person for this.
