Anatomy

The knee is basically made up of four bones: femur, tibia, fibula, and patella. The femur, the large thigh bone, attaches by ligaments to the tibia next to the fibula, which runs parallel. The patella, or knee cap, rides along the knee joint as the knee bends and straightens

The muscles that support the knee joint are the quadriceps (front) and hamstrings (back).

The ligaments hold the knee joint in place and are vulnerable to injury. The knee joint contains cartilage called the meniscus. The meniscus fits in the joint between the tibia and the femur, allowing the bones to slide freely.

The joint also has a bursa, a fluid sac that helps the muscles and tendons move freely as the knee moves.

Causes of Knee Pain

Pain in the knee can be caused by many things, including trauma, degeneration, misalignment, and arthritis.

  • Ligament injuries are usually painful even at rest and may be swollen and/or warm to the touch. The pain usually becomes more severe when bending, walking, or putting weight on the knee. It is possible to have more than one injured ligament from a traumatic event. A ligament injury occurs if the joint is twisted or over-stretched.
  • Meniscus tears usually occur with impact or force of rotation during a sharp, rapid movement. This is especially common in sports that involve reaction body movements; however, there is a high incidence with aging and breakdown of the cartilage. A patient with a meniscus tear may have a popping sensation with certain activity of the knee. It can also be characterized by a locking or unstable sensation of the knee joint.
  • Tendonitis of the knee, also called patellar tendonitis, occurs in the front of the knee below the knee cap. It can also occur at the back of the knee which would be referred to as popliteal tendonitis. Tendonitis is inflammation of the tendon which is often caused by a strain, such as jumping or heavy impact. A patient with tendonitis usually feels pain localized to the tendon affected.
  • Fractures mostly occur with severe knee trauma. In a motor vehicle accident or other impact trauma, a fracture or bone breakage of any of the three bones of the knee can occur.
  • Arthritis is inflammation within a joint. The causes of knee joint inflammation can be non-inflammatory, such as osteoarthritis, or inflammatory, such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout. Many patients suffering from arthritis of the knee joint will feel severe pain and discomfort that often disable the patient’s mobility.

Pain can also occur in the knee from other diseases or conditions that involve the knee joint, bones, nerves, or soft tissue that support or supply sensation to the knee. Actually, the knee joint is the most common joint to be affected by rheumatic or autoimmune diseases.
