Knee pain is one of the most common types of joint pain, and many people will have at least one episode in their lifetime. It is a bothersome symptom that is not quickly relieved and sometimes requires urgent medical attention. But if you or any other member of your family suddenly experience knee pain, is there anything special you need to know? What is causing knee pain? What can you do about it?
1What is knee pain?
As its name suggests, knee pain is a hassle and discomfort in one of the very highly mobile articulations of the lower limbs. The knee is made up of various parts. The articulation that joins these bones is referred to as a hinge synovial joint, and it’s highly portable, allowing for flexion, extension, medial rotation, and lateral rotation. Various ligaments cover the articulation, it’s protected and stabilized from the patella, and there are lots of others within the articulation called cruciate ligaments, which prevent dislocation of the tibia.
Knee pain is frequently associated with a traumatic event, but may also be brought on by a systemic disorder as in rheumatoid arthritis and systemic Lupus erythematous. Whatever the situation, there are different kinds of knee pain for each diagnosis, and not all them are felt exactly the exact same way. For instance, we could have knee pain in a variety of parts of the articulation (anterior, posterior, or lateral knee pain). It can be felt close to the skin or deep beneath the skin at the articulation, and it may or might not be associated with the movement of the articulation.
However, is it dangerous? Generally, knee pain is not dangerous, but we should look for the appropriate ways to diagnose and treat the causes so as to avoid complications.
