Different types of knee pains and injuries are fairly common in the United States and make up about 1/3 of all muscle/bone related visits to a physician. Pains can stem from injury-related disorders, or even genetic or aging conditions such as arthritis. Injuries to the knee include sprained ligaments, tears in cartilage, or a stress fracture. These types of injuries are usually caused by sudden trauma to the knee. Other types of injuries may stem from overuse and excessive pressure to the muscles and bones in the knee. These injuries may include conditions such as tendonitis or runner’s knee. Other knee conditions include iliotibial band syndrome, bursitis (the burst of a fluid-filled cushion/sac inside the knee), osteoarthritis (degeneration of cartilage), patellofemoral pain syndrome (pain in the knee cap from injury or stress), patellar tendonitis (tendon strain typically caused by overuse in the knee), and a dislocated kneecap. Treating and reducing the amount of pain in the knee can be simple and easy.
