What Is Knee Pain?

Knee pain is a general term used to describe discomfort, soreness, or pain in the knee joint. The knee joint is the largest joint in the body and is made up of three bones: the femur (thighbone), the tibia (shinbone), and the patella (kneecap).

Knee pain is often caused by an injury, like a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. It’s a symptom that affects people of all ages. It can strike without warning, often after an injury or exercise.

Types of Knee Pain

There are many different types of knee pain, each with its own set of symptoms. Some common types of knee pain include:

Arthritis:

Arthritis is a general term used to describe inflammation in the joints. There are many different types of arthritis, but the most common form affecting the knee is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that causes the cartilage in the joints to break down. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints.

Bursitis:

Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursae, which are small, fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles near the joints. Bursitis often occurs in the knee due to overuse or repetitive motion.

Tendonitis:

Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons, which are the thick ropes of tissue that connect the muscles to the bones. Tendonitis can be caused by overuse or repetitive motion. The most common symptoms of tendonitis are pain and stiffness in the affected area.

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome:

Patellofemoral pain syndrome is a condition that causes pain in the front of the knee. It is often caused by improper alignment of the kneecap. The most common symptom of patellofemoral pain syndrome is a dull, aching pain in the front of the knee.

Causes of Knee Pain

Knee pain can be caused by a variety of things, ranging from minor injuries to serious underlying medical conditions. Some of the most common causes of knee pain include:

  • Dislocated kneecap: One of the most common causes of knee pain is a dislocated kneecap (patella). This occurs when the kneecap slips out of place, causing the knee to bend abnormally.
  • Fractured kneecap: A fractured kneecap is another common cause of knee pain. This occurs when the kneecap cracks or breaks, usually due to a fall or direct blow to the knee.
  • Meniscal tear: The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that cushions the knee joint. A tear in this cartilage can cause knee pain, swelling, and stiffness.
  • Osgood-Schlatter disease: It is a condition that affects the growth plates in the knee, causing pain and swelling. This condition is most common in adolescents who participate in high-impact sports.
