Understanding the Knee Joint

This is the largest joint in the body. It is made up of four main structures: bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons any of which can be injured.

It allows the lower leg to move relative to the thigh while supporting the body’s weight. Movements at these joint are essential to many everyday activities, including walking, running, sitting and standing.

Why do I get Knee pain?

Joint pain is an exceedingly common problem. It can be the result of many musculoskeletal disorders, including meniscal, cartilage, chondral, or ligament injuries.

Trauma and everyday wear and tear can also lead to pain, as can age, activity, and genetics.

Untreated pain or injury may subside temporarily, but return years later as chronic knee pain. Seeking treatment proactively can help prevent a one-time injury from becoming an all-the-time pain.

If you experience this kind of unending pain that affects movement, call(254) 791 399 103/4 or (254) 780 888 823 immediately to access our Ortho Urgent Care Assistance

How Can I Avoid Knee Pain?

As earlier indicated, knee pain is often caused by either a one-time acute injury or repetitive motions that stress the joint over time, particularly as we age.

Here are some steps you can take to avoid pain and injuries:

  • Maintain a healthy weight. Extra weight can increase your chances of developing osteoarthritis. Maintain a weight that’s appropriate for your size and age to decrease stress on your knees and to avoid increased chances for knee injuries.

  • Do low-impact exercise. Do not decrease or suddenly change the intensity of your exercise

  • Warm up. Before starting any exercise, warm up and then do stretches. It decreases tension on your tendons, ultimately relieving pressure on the knees.

  • Wear shoes with a good fit. It will help you to maintain proper leg alignment and balance, ultimately preventing knee injuries.

  • Always wear lap and shoulder belts when driving or riding in a car, and be sure infants and small children are correctly secured in an approved, correctly installed car seat.
  • Consider physical therapy. If you already have a knee injury, visit the experienced physical therapists at NSOC who can help to set up an appropriate exercise regime.
