What Causes Knee Joint Pain ?

Ligament Tear – Ligaments link bones and support joints. Overloading them can lead to knee weakness. Injuries often result from sudden, forceful actions or trauma.

Meniscus Tear – Meniscus injuries typically occur from a combination of knee compression and rotation, leading to increased torsion and resulting in tears. Twisting frequently causes these tears.

Bursitis, often occurs when the fluid-filled sacs, known as bursae, which cushion and protect your joints, become inflamed or irritated. Inflammation of the bursae in your knee can lead to discomfort and pain in the knee region.

  • Arthritis: Conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can result in Knee pain and stiffness.

  • Nerve Compression: Pinched nerves in the neck or upper back can radiate pain into the Knee.

  • Tendonitis: Inflammation of the tendons can cause pain, especially with repetitive movements.

  • Fibromyalgia: Frequently confused with arthritis, fibromyalgia is a different disorder that typically causes joint pain along with fatigue.

What are the Symptoms?

  • Pain: One of the primary indicators is the persistent, aching, or sharp discomfort within the Knee joint or nearby regions.

  • Limited Range of Motion: Being unable to completely extend the knee.

  • Heightened discomfort when applying pressure to your knee.

  • Noticeable swelling in the vicinity of your knee.

  • Hearing popping or crunching sounds.
