Knee Related Pain

Knee Related Pain

The knee joint is a pivotal synovial joint that supports the body’s entire weight and enables smooth mobility. This intricate joint comprises three sub-joints: medial and lateral condyles and the patellofemoral joint. It owes its fluid movement to the smooth articular cartilage and synovial fluid. Stabilizing this complex structure are several ligaments, including the ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL, and supporting structures like menisci and bursae. Given its vital role in walking and bearing weight, any dysfunction can lead to debilitating knee pain. Common causes of knee pain include traumatic injuries from accidents, twists, or falls; degenerative conditions like arthritis and chondral defects; inflammatory conditions such as Rheumatoid arthritis; and bone-related issues like osteoporosis and stress fractures.
