Knee Pain

Knee pain is defined as discomfort and inflammation arising from the cartilage, bone or soft tissue of a joint. Pain can arise from an acute trauma or from an underlying condition such as osteoarthritis, degeneration or bursitis. Knee pain affects millions of Americans each year and has been on the rise.

There are a number of conditions and injuries that can lead to knee pain. Some of the most common causes of joint pain include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Meniscus tears
  • Bursitis
  • Muscle, ligament, or tendon strains
  • Patella disorders

Knee Pain Symptoms

Knee pain may start out with some mild stiffness causing soreness and some discomfort. Over time, the ache may worsen and produce severe, debilitating pain. Joint pain symptoms vary, but some of the most common signs include:

  • Knee pain, stiffness, and weakness
  • Knee tenderness, and swelling
  • Decreased range of motion in the knee
  • Change in gait due to pain
  • Clicking and popping of the joint
  • Knee giving out
