Knee Pain: Common Causes & Possible Solutions for long-term relief.

Updated: Aug 25

The knee is one of those joints of the body that continuously endure significant stress from the body weight, especially during physical activities like running, bending, aerobics, etc. The disc-shaped structure that you can easily palpate on your knee is a bone patella that is fixed intricately with your thigh bone (femur) above and leg bone(tibia) below through various ligaments and tendons. The joint as a whole is filled with synovial fluid that maintains its motion and flexibility. A number of issues in any or all components can be a reason your knees might be hurting.

Stiffness and pain in the knee joint is undoubtedly a gut-wrenching experience since it hampers even the simplest of tasks making them extremely debilitating. Temporary discomfort or sprains are usually benign, but if your knee pain isn't settling and resolving, it certainly needs to be attended to. With that said, knee joint pain also has a number of risk factors and causes. Let's have a brief insight into them.

Why Does your Knee Hurt?

  • Ligament Sprain or Tear-They usually occur during aggressive physical activity or after a long period of inactivity. Primarily the anterior cruciate ligament(ACL) is involved in it.

  • Patellar Tendinitis-An inflammation of the patellar tendon usually due to overuse injury and recurrent stress.

  • Knee Bursitis- Bursa cushions your knee bone and associated tendons. Its inflammation causes sharp knee pain.

  • Patellar Dislocation- It slides out of the compound joint resulting in pain and inflammation.

  • Gout- The uric acid accumulation in joints causes chronic pain and discomfort.

  • Arthritis-An autoimmune inflammation of the joints causing progressive weathering and depletion, resulting in chronic pain. It is one of the most common etiology of joint pains throughout the body.

  • Meniscus Rupture- Meniscus is a cartilage that provides shock absorption between the shin and thighbone. Any situation causing sudden knee bend, especially while carrying weight, can rupture or damage it.

  • Bakers Cyst- A fluid-filled infectious swelling mostly at the back of the knee is also a painful knee condition. However, it is not very common among non-athletics.

  • Tumors and Malignancy- Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) can also be a reason for knee pain with no apparent underlying pathology or injury.
