The knee is the largest and most complex joint and is therefore very vulnerable to injury. The complexity of the knee joint makes it susceptible to acute injuries caused by running, jumping and general sports activities. Knee injuries may often occur from overuse or repetitive overload and this can lead to a wide range of knee symptoms and conditions.
The most common symptoms of patients with knee problems are:
- Knee pain
- Knee swelling
- Knee locking
- Knee stiffness
- Giving way
These knee symptoms are commonly caused by:
- Osteoarthrosis (arthritis)
- Meniscal tears
- Knee ligament injuries
- Articular cartilage damage
- Knee tendonitis
- Knee dislocation
- Patellar dislocation (kneecap dislocation)
- Knee bursitis
