Reasons for knee pain
There are several reasons for experiencing knee pain! Why you’re experiencing it can be a difficult question to answer.
Your knee is a hinge joint with only forward and backward movement. If your knees are not operating in good form, you should be able to stand, walk, run, and dance with ease. You will not be able to move as freely as you would like if you’re experiencing knee pain.
Knee pain can have many causes, including:
Inflammation in the bursae, the small sacs of fluid that cushions the outside of your knee joint, can occur as the result of an injury. Bursitis prevents the tendons and ligaments from gliding smoothly over the joint.
Our thigh bone is connected to our shinbone by four ligaments, one of which is the ACL. People who play sports that demand quick changes in direction are more likely to sustain an ACL injury.
Tendons are fibrous, thick structures that connect muscles to bones. Tendonitis can develop if they become irritated and inflamed. The patellar tendon goes from the kneecap (patella) to the shinbone, allowing you to kick, run, and jump. Patellar tendinitis is common in runners, skiers, cyclists, and people who participate in jumping sports and activities.
The bones of the knee, particularly the kneecap (patella), can be damaged if you fall or are in a car accident. If you have osteoporosis, a knee fracture might occur simply by taking a step in the wrong direction.
Between your shinbone and thighbone is the meniscus, which acts as a shock absorber. This thick, rubbery cartilage may rip if you twist your knee rapidly while bearing weight on it.
Seeing a licensed physical therapist at our Knoxville, TN physical therapy clinic for a thorough evaluation is the best way to determine the true cause of your knee pain. Request an appointment today!
