What is Knee Pain?

Knee pain is a common condition involving discomfort, swelling, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected knee. The knee is a complex joint that involves bones, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and synovial fluid. Various factors can contribute to knee pain. It can result from injuries, overexertion, or degenerative conditions.

Greenbell Medical Clinic offers various treatments for knee pain through personalized physical therapy programs. Our goal is to strengthen the surrounding muscles, improve flexibility, and optimize overall joint health, promoting a pain-free and active lifestyle.

Understanding the Condition

  • Prevalence: Knee pain is widespread and affects people of all ages. According to estimates, about 25% of adults experience knee pain, with prevalence increasing with age.
  • Signs and Symptoms: The pain may be sharp or dull, accompanied by swelling and instability. Stiffness and difficulty in bending or straightening the knee are common symptoms.
  • Complication: Untreated knee pain can lead to worsening joint damage, reduced mobility, and the development of chronic conditions like osteoarthritis.

Etiology and Risk Factors

  • Injuries:
    • Sprains and strains: Overstretching or tearing ligaments (sprains) or muscles and tendons (strains) around the knee can cause pain.
    • Torn ligaments or meniscus: Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), or meniscus (cartilage) can lead to knee pain.
  • Arthritis:
    • Osteoarthritis: The degeneration of joint cartilage over time, often associated with aging.
    • Rheumatoid arthritis: An autoimmune condition that causes inflammation in the joints, including the knee.
  • Overuse or repetitive strain:
    • Engaging in activities that involve repetitive knee movements or excessive stress on the joint, such as running or jumping, can lead to overuse injuries and pain.
  • Bursitis:
    • Inflammation of the bursae (fluid-filled sacs that cushion the joint) can cause pain and swelling in the knee.
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS):
    • Also known as runner’s knee, PFPS involves pain around the patella (kneecap), often aggravated by activities like running or squatting.
  • Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS):
    • Inflammation of the iliotibial band, a thick band of tissue that runs down the outside of the thigh, can cause pain on the outer side of the knee.
  • Dislocation or misalignment:
    • A dislocated kneecap (patella) or issues with the alignment of the knee joint can result in pain.
  • Tendonitis:
    • Inflammation of the tendons around the knee, such as patellar tendonitis or quadriceps tendonitis, can cause pain during movement.
  • Fractures:
    • Broken bones in the knee, whether in the femur, tibia, or patella, can lead to severe pain.
  • Gout:
    • A form of arthritis caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joints, including the knee.
  • Infections:
    • Infections in the knee joint or surrounding tissues can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness.
