Root Causes: Understanding Knee Pain Triggers

Knees, shouldering the role of high-use, weight-bearing joints, are prone to injury. The stabilizing ligaments within your knee are particularly susceptible, as those who’ve encountered a torn or sprained ACL, MCL, or meniscus can confirm. While stress-induced injuries often contribute to knee pain in younger individuals, the aging process makes older individuals more susceptible to degenerative wear-and-tear injuries. As time marches on, knee pain often stems from conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and bursitis. Additionally, common knee pain culprits include:

While chronic conditions like osteoarthritis and osteoporosis lead to enduring back pain, untreated acute injuries can also evolve into chronic discomfort.

Sprain or strain injuries
Rheumatoid arthritis
Septic arthritis (knee infection)
Gout (a type of arthritis)
Patellofemoral syndrome (front knee pain)
IT band syndrome

Aggravating Factors: Amplifying Knee Pain

Inadequate exercise regimens can lead to weakened muscles around the knees, compromising joint support. Inflexible muscles struggle to absorb stress, while weak ones fail to stabilize the joint mechanics. This duo of issues contributes to knee pain. Hip or foot problems also exacerbate discomfort by altering gait and increasing knee stress. Excess weight exerts a substantial toll on load-bearing joints, intensifying the stress they bear. Everyday tasks like walking or climbing stairs become more arduous for your knees.
