Knee Injuries 101: Dealing With Knee Pain

If you suffer with knee pain, you’re not alone. Over 1/3 of all doctor’s visits in the United States is due to knee muscle and bone pain. Knowing you’re not alone of course doesn’t necessarily make that Torn Meniscus or Bursitis any easier to deal with, does it?

And secondly, how do these common knee injuries occur?

While there are many reasons our patients come to use with knee problems, seeking pain relief and whole body care, here are some of the most common reasons for knee pain:

  • Swollen Ligaments
  • Torn Ligaments
  • Torn Meniscus (cartilage tears)
  • Runner’s Knee
  • Arthritis
  • Bone chips

More Complicated Knee Problems:

The knee joint is a complex joint, leaving room for many potential conditions and problems for your knees. 

  • Bursitis: Two common types of bursitis are called ”housemaid’s knee” and ”preacher’s knee,” since they are often caused by kneeling
  • Baker’s cyst”: A swelling of one of the bursa in the back of the knee — can also result from injuries and from conditions like arthritis
  • Iliotibial Band Syndrome: The iliotibial band is a piece of tough tissue that runs from your hip down to your shin. If it’s irritated by overuse or other problems, it can get swollen and cause pain on the outer side of the knee
  • Medial Plica Syndrome: The plica is a fold of tissue in the knee joint. When it gets irritated from overuse, swelling and knee pain can result
  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease: This condition causes a painful bump below the knee, where a tendon from the kneecap connects to the shin. It’s usually caused by overuse and irritation of the tendon. The pain may come and go over time. It’s especially common in teenage boys and girls (13 and 14 years of age)
  • Osteoarthritis: This condition is a frequent cause of knee pain in athletes and non-athletes over the age 60
  • Partially Dislocated Kneecap (or Patellar Subluxation): The kneecap slides out of position, causing knee pain and swelling. It’s often the result of physical defect in your legs, rather than an injury. It’s particularly common in teenage girls
  • Tendonitis: Tendons are tough bands of tissue that connect your bones and muscles. Overuse can make the tendons inflamed and sore. One type of knee tendonitis is called ”jumper’s knee.”
