Knee Joints – Stiffness & Pain
Knee pain is a common problem that can originate in any of the bony structures compromising the knee joint, the kneecap, or the ligaments and cartilage of the knee. Knee pain can be aggravated by exercise, affected by the surrounding muscles and their movements, and be triggered by other problems such as a foot injury. Knee pain can affect people of all ages, and home remedies can be helpful unless it becomes severe.
Knee Joints– Largest and Strongest joints in the body which allow us to sit, stand, walk, run or climb. Knees are much responsible for our daily movement so there is a possibility of damage in your knee joints and today painful knee joints are a very common problem.
Knee is a hinge joint formed by the meeting of three bones. The femur, or thighbone, has two rounded hollows in the end, that house the bones of the lower leg, the tibia and the patella. The knee joint is lined with cartilage and synovial fluid, and an extra layer of cartilage shaped like a figure eight – called a meniscus – that sits between the femur and tibia to absorb shock from impact with the ground.
Causes of Knee Pain
Knee pain may be the result of an injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage, or chronic conditions like osteoarthritis. When the protective cartilage around the knee joint begins to break down, then this complex joint can begin to creak or pop out of place, makes you achy, sore and stiff. In many reports we found that knee pain become worse in the morning or after sitting for long time, and some it seems to get worse in rainy weather. Knee pain can be divided into three major categories:
Acute injury: such as a broken bone (Fractures), torn ligament, Ligament injuries, Meniscus injuries, Dislocation
Medical conditions: Rheumatoid arthritis, Gout, infectious arthritis
Chronic use/overuse conditions: osteoarthritis, patellar syndromes, tendinitis, and bursitis
