icon-anatomy-doctorAbout your knees

Your knees are the largest joints in your body. Your knee joint is made up of bones, cartilage, discs, ligaments, tendons and muscles, which all work together to ensure proper joint function (extension, flexion).

The knee joint is formed by your upper leg bone (femur) and your lower leg bones (tibia, fibia) which are separated by two discs (minisci) and connected by ligaments, tendons and muscles that give it strength and support. The ends of your leg bones are covered in cartilage that act as a shock absorber and provide a smooth surface for joint movement.This allows you to walk, jog, run and maneuver comfortably throughout your day.

Due to the size and complexity of your knee joint, it’s easy to injure and susceptible to chronic pain from overuse.

icon-symptoms-doctorCommon causes of knee pain

There are three main causes of knee pain; an injury, a medical condition or chronic overuse.

A knee injury can affect the ligaments, cartilage, menisci and leg bones. Common injuries of the knee, such as an ACL tear or a meniscus tear, result in severe pain, followed by swelling and the inability to move the joint properly.

Fractures and chips of the leg bones can also occur in cases of severe trauma. Aside from acute injuries, conditions such as arthritis or osteoarthritis and everyday wear on the joint are also causes of knee pain.

To be certain of the reason for your knee pain, contact the orthopedic surgeons at Westchester Sport and Spine for specific diagnosis of your knee pain.
