Understanding Knee Pain

Knee pain is a common concern that can stem from various causes, affecting people of all ages and lifestyles. The knee joint is a complex structure comprised of bones, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage, making it susceptible to injury, overuse, and degeneration. Whether your knee pain is a result of an acute injury, chronic condition, or wear and tear, our experts at RelievUS Pain Management are here to help you find relief.

Causes of Knee Pain:

  • Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis is the gradual breakdown of the protective cartilage that cushions the bones in the knee joint. This degenerative condition often causes pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.
  • Strains and Sprains: Overstretching or tearing of muscles, ligaments, or tendons around the knee due to sudden movements, improper technique, or overuse can result in pain.
  • Ligament Injuries: Injuries to the knee's ligaments, such as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or medial collateral ligament (MCL), are common in sports and accidents, causing pain, swelling, and instability.
  • Meniscus Tears: The meniscus is a cartilage in the knee that helps absorb shock. Tears can occur due to sudden twisting motions, leading to pain, swelling, and sometimes locking of the knee.
  • Tendonitis: Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon, often caused by repetitive movements or overuse, resulting in pain around the knee.
  • Bursitis: Bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion the knee joint. Inflammation of these sacs, known as bursitis, can lead to localized pain and swelling.
  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (Runner's Knee): This condition is characterized by pain around the front of the knee, often due to improper tracking of the kneecap as it moves along the thigh bone.
  • Iliotibial Band Syndrome: Overuse of the iliotibial band, a fibrous tissue that runs along the outer side of the thigh, can cause pain on the outer part of the knee.
  • Patellar Tendinitis: Also called "jumper's knee," this is an inflammation of the patellar tendon, which connects the kneecap to the shin bone. It can result from repetitive jumping or running activities.
  • Gout: Gout is a form of arthritis caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in joints, including the knee, leading to sudden and severe pain.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: An autoimmune condition that can affect multiple joints, including the knees, causing inflammation, pain, and joint damage.
  • Fractures: Broken bones in or around the knee can cause sharp pain, swelling, and difficulty bearing weight.
  • Dislocations: Knee joint dislocations can occur due to trauma, leading to extreme pain and loss of joint alignment.
  • Overuse or Improper Form: Repeated stress or incorrect movements during physical activities or exercise can lead to pain and strain in the knee joint.
  • Obesity: Excess body weight places increased stress on the knee joint, potentially leading to pain and joint deterioration.

It's important to note that accurate diagnosis and proper medical evaluation are crucial to determining the cause of knee pain. If you're experiencing persistent or severe knee pain, consulting a healthcare professional or a pain management specialist is recommended to receive appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
