What Causes Knee Pain?
Knee pain can vary in intensity, ranging from mild discomfort or stiffness to severe pain that significantly impacts daily activities and overall quality of life.
But what leads to the problems you may experience in your knees? To understand this, it's important to have knowledge of the structure and anatomy of the knee joint.
The knee is a complex joint composed of several structures, including bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. The femur (thigh bone), tibia (shin bone), and patella (kneecap) form the bony framework of the knee. Articular cartilage, a smooth covering on the ends of the bones, provides cushioning and allows for smooth movement. Ligaments connect the bones and provide stability, while tendons connect muscles to bones, allowing for joint movement.
Some Common Knee Issues
Degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of cartilage in the knee joint, resulting in pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.
An autoimmune condition where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the joints, causing inflammation, pain, and potential joint deformities.
Inflammation of the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs that provide cushioning between bones, tendons, and muscles, leading to pain and swelling.
Injuries to knee ligaments, such as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or medial collateral ligament (MCL), resulting from sudden twisting or impact, causing pain, instability, and difficulty with knee movements.
Inflammation of the tendon connecting the patella to the shinbone, commonly caused by repetitive jumping or overuse..
The patella being forced out of its normal position, often due to sudden changes in direction or direct impact, resulting in severe pain, instability, and difficulty with knee movements.
