No Injury to Your Knees But Feeling Pain There?

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.


The knee is 2 long leg bones held together by muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Ligaments are elastic bands of tissue that connect bone to bone. Each bone end is covered with a layer of cartilage that absorbs shock and protects the knee. Tendons are tough cords of tissue that connect muscles to bones. When the tendon becomes irritated and inflamed, the knees start to hurt. Typically, this pain in the tendons is caused by straining your knee joint and your muscles, either through repetitive use, overuse or overloading. If you spend a day doing an activity you’re not used to, like lots of bending and lifting, you can develop this pain in the knee tendons. Also in your knee is small, fluid-filled sacs which help the tendon and ligaments to glide smoothly over the bones. When these tiny sacs get inflamed and irritated, knee pain occurs. Overuse and repetitive use of your knee are typically the most common causes of this type of pain. Another common cause of knee pain is arthritis, namely osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative process where the cartilage in the joint gradually wears away. It often affects middle-age and older people. Osteoarthritis may be caused by excess stress on the joint such as repeated injury or being overweight. Rheumatoid arthritis can also affect the knees by causing the joint to become inflamed and by destroying the knee cartilage. Rheumatoid arthritis often affects persons at an earlier age than osteoarthritis. Whatever the cause of your knee pain, HIjamaEnergetics can help reduce or eliminate the 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.
