Knee Pain Q & A

Why do I have knee pain?

You won’t be surprised to hear that your knees withstand a lot of stress. They bear the full weight of your upper body, absorb shock when your feet hit the ground, and sustain repetitive movement.

These challenges work together to make your knee vulnerable to many painful conditions, and that’s even before you add the impact of aging or sports. The longer you live, the more cumulative stress on your knees leads to tissue degeneration.

Athletes participating in high-demand sports have a higher risk of injuring their ligaments. Any sport that demands moves like pivoting, cutting, or landing on one leg, such as soccer, football, and basketball, significantly increases the stress on your knee. 

These conditions most often cause knee pain:

  • Arthritis
  • Ligament injuries
  • Meniscus tears
  • Dislocation
  • Fractures
  • Tendinitis
  • Synovitis
  • Bursitis

Without treatment, a knee injury can cause chronic joint instability, making it hard to keep up with daily or athletic activities.

Will I have other symptoms with knee pain?

Knee pain could be your only symptom, depending on the underlying problem. You may also experience:

  • Inflammation
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Stiffness
  • Joint instability
  • Clicking or popping
  • Limited joint movement
  • Locked knee joint
  • Pain when placing weight on your knee

If you have severe pain, swelling, joint instability, or can’t bear weight on the knee, you should have your knee evaluated right away to determine if you need repair for a serious injury. 

Some knee problems, like a fracture, ligament rupture, or meniscus tear need surgery to ensure they heal properly and regain optimal strength.
