Knee pain is one of the most common joint pain that many people suffer from. Sometimes its due to injury such as auto accidents, falling and bumping your knees on the floor, sports activities that strain the knees, etc. These can result in knee injuries such as fractures, torn ligaments and sprains.
However, sometimes there can be pain in the knees without any injury before it. When there is pain knee without a direct injury, it is mostly due to the inflammation of the connective tissues, namely ligaments and tendons of the knee. Sometimes cartilage damage can also cause knee pain.
Arthritis is a condition that affects the cartilage inside joints. Cartilage provides a thick, slick layer of protection that enables the bones inside a joint to glide smoothly, without sticking or painful friction. When the cartilage wears away or breaks down, the friction inside the joint increases, causing pain, stiffness and inflammation. Although there are several types of arthritis, osteoarthritis is by far the most common, caused by wear and tear and age-related changes. Arthritis usually develops where the thigh bone and shin bone meet, or between the thigh bone and the kneecap.
In addition to arthritis, infections can also cause knee pain. Most infections also cause warmth and tenderness in the joint, and it’s not uncommon to have a fever as well.
If you have a foot, hip or ankle injury, you might wind up putting more weight on the other side of your body. Over time, the change in your gait and balance can strain your knees.
