Our knees bear the weight of our activities and movements, making them susceptible to various types of joint pain. Whether caused by injury, aging, or underlying conditions, knee pain can significantly impact your quality of life. Fortunately, OrthoConnecticut's team of skilled orthopedic surgeons and pain specialists are here to diagnose, treat, and provide lasting relief. Let's explore common knee joint pain issues and how our experts can help you get back to living your best life.

Common Types of Knee Joint Pain:

Osteoarthritis: As the most prevalent cause of knee pain, osteoarthritis involves the gradual breakdown of the knee's protective cartilage. This can result in pain, stiffness, swelling, and decreased range of motion.

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome: Also known as "runner's knee," this condition manifests as pain around or behind the kneecap. It's often linked to overuse, muscle imbalances, and biomechanical issues.

Meniscus Tears: Meniscus Tears: The meniscus, a rubbery cartilage that cushions the knee joint, can tear due to sudden twisting movements or degeneration over time. A torn meniscus can cause pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the knee.

Ligament Injuries: Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or medial collateral ligament (MCL) can cause severe knee pain and instability. Ligament injuries often occur during sports or accidents.

Bursitis: The bursae, fluid-filled sacs that cushion the knee joint, can become inflamed due to repetitive motions or direct impact. Bursitis results in localized pain and swelling.
