Knee Pain

Mehmet İşyar, M.D. Prof

Knee pain is a common health problem that negatively affects the quality of life of individuals. Knee pain can be caused by many structures in the knee joint and can occur for a variety of reasons. This pain can affect people of all age groups, from older adults to young athletes.

The main causes of knee pain include osteoarthritis (wear of the joint cartilage), rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joint), meniscus injuries, ligament injuries (for example, anterior cruciate ligament tears), tendonitis (tendon inflammation), arthritis (bone formation in the knee), overuse injuries and trauma. Knee pain usually presents with symptoms such as pain, swelling, stiffness, joint restriction and sometimes tenderness.

Treatment may vary depending on the cause of the knee pain. Various methods such as medications, physical therapy, exercise programs, injections or surgical intervention can be used. Treatment is aimed at relieving the patient’s pain, restoring mobility and improving knee health. Knee pain can usually be managed with early diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
