a Common Types & Causes of Knee Pain
We Address The Root Cause of Knee Pain
The joint of your knee is an intricate design made up of three bones of the tibia (shin), patella (kneecap) and the femur. A tendon underlies the kneecap to give strength and motion to your knee and cartilage secures the femur to the shin bone. The meniscus cushions the femur and shin (tibia) bones.
All these components work together for your knee to fully function and letting you enjoy full movement for everyday activities. Injuring your knee in a car accident, sports, along with a fall, tear, or another incident that pushes the bone structure out of place can cause the nerves to be affected, and increase inflammation in your connective tissues resulting in severe pain.
Common injuries and conditions associated with the knee that cause pain include:
- Runner’s knee
- Bursitis (Housemaid’s knee)
- Meniscus tears
- MCL/LCL injuries
- With injuries to the MCL, meniscus, and arthritis, most often you will feel pain on the inside of your knee. LCL injuries, meniscus tears tendonitis and arthritis most often will cause pain on the outside of your knee.
- Baker’s Cyst
- Any fluid that collects on the back of your knee can cause pain due to a condition called Baker’s Cyst.
- Painful pops and snaps
- Kneecap Injury
- Any pain that can be felt in or on the front of your knee is most likely to be associated with your kneecap or a tendon beneath your kneecap.
Because car accidents, even if it is just a fender bender, involve unexpected trauma it is not unusual to experience knee pain, because your whole body can be impacted. You can injure your knee in a variety of ways so it is important that if you are experiencing pain that you seek out evaluation and treatment as soon as possible.
