Osteoarthritis is a common knee, as well as joint problems, which is also called degenerative joint disease. It is a common form of arthritis. This medical condition occurs when cartilage in your joints wears down over time. The knee joint is involved; therefore, a range of factors can lead to its damage and pain. When the components of the knee work abnormally, pain, inflammation, and other such symptoms can occur. Such problems can result from either trauma or a medical condition.
The following are the different causes of knee pain and its treatment process:
The knee joint: To understand the different causes of a knee problem, it may help to know the formation of the knee joint. The knee is the joint and a connection between the thighbone, shinbone, and the kneecap. It also incorporates cartilage, ligament, menisci, and tendons.
Receiving a direct blow to the knee, falling from a height, making a sudden change in direction, or making repetitive movements during physical training or during sports are the causes of traumatic knee injuries. Such trauma can lead to:
-Dislocation of the kneecap
-A fracture of the femur, tibia, or kneecap
Accidents fall, and improper physical activities are common causes of a traumatic knee injury. Such injury can put the knee under extreme strain. If the condition is not treated on time and if it fails to heal, then chronic pain can result.
Medical conditions that lead to knee pain incorporate the following:
-Degenerative tissue disorders, such as osteoarthritis
-Auto-inflammatory disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis
-Tendinitis, an inflammation of a tendon, leading to pain while climbing stairs
-Gout, a type of arthritis
-A tumour, either benign or malignant in the knee
