Knee Pain can happen when doing some activities, from the seemingly mundane to extreme. Your knee is vulnerable to a simple twist, which can lead to an injury, as well as ongoing problems.

Knee Injury Signs

The symptoms of knee pain can include:

  • Swelling
  • Redness and warmth to touch
  • Weakness or instability
  • Popping or crunching noises
  • Inability to straighten

Causes of Knee Injuries

The causes of your knee injury can be caused by a number of issues including:

  • Knee Bursitis - small sacs of fluid that cushion the outside of your knee joint
  • Hip or Foot Pain – can change the way you walk
  • Arthritis – Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid, and Gout can all cause knee pain
  • Lack of Muscle Flexibility – Lack of strength can increase the risk of knee injuries
  • Previous injuries – having injured the knee in your past, can make it more susceptible to being injured again
  • Excessive weight – Being overweight can cause stress on your knee joints, even when just walking
