Knee Pain Specialist in Murfreesboro, TN

Knee pain is a widespread problem in many people, without preference for race, age, or gender. There are many factors in which the risk of injury can be increased. The knee is a large joint complex. Made up of three main bone structures, the union with the femur, with the tibia, and the patella, which is the bone that gives mobility to this joint. Some of these bones are involved in knee pain and not just the kneecap or the part that bends.

SYMPTOMS OF KNEE PAIN

Symptoms of knee problems can vary and will depend on the cause and severity. However, knee pain is joint pain.  Immediately the knee may hurt if it is overused or injured. Instability and weakness in the knee or the feeling that it is about to give way is a common symptom. Other symptoms may include stiffness, redness, popping and an inability to straighten the knee, depending on the knee pain causes.

TYPES OF KNEE PAIN

Knee injuries could damage different structures that form the joint complex, such as tendons, ligaments, or synovial lining that protect the joint. Some of the more common knee injuries include ACL injury, fractures, or broken bone. Torn meniscus, knee bursitis, which is inflammation or irritation of a synovial lining, and patellar tendinitis.

CAUSES OF KNEE PAIN

Osteoarthritis, which is the deterioration of the cartilage of the knee’s articular complex by friction and use over the years is the most common type of arthritis. Knee pain can have an infectious origin such as septic arthritis, due to the accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joint. If the collection is of calcium crystals in the synovial fluid, then it is gout and pseudogout. There is also an autoimmune origin, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Knee pain can be due to injuries, trauma, overweight, pre-existing injuries, sports, and occupations—situations where the joint complex is exposed to damage.

LONG TERM PROBLEMS DUE TO IGNORING KNEE PAIN

The most common long-term problems due to ignoring knee pain, injuries, and elderly diseases of the joint complex, over time, can lead to chronic pain, joint damage, and functional limitation, such as osteoarthritis. If preventive measures are not taken in time, affecting the patient’s mobility and negatively impacting their quality of life.
