WHAT ARE THE KNEE PROBLEMS?

The knee joint is comprised of the femur (thigh bone), patella (knee top), and the tibia and fibula (shin bones) where the bones are put together by ligament and the muscles are responsible for knee joint movement. At the point when any of these structures are harmed people develop knee issues. Knee issues can cause agony and trouble strolling.

The present dynamic way of life has put a gigantic strain on the knees. Athletes often experience knee injuries due to an unexpected blow or fall. Women are especially inclined to knee caps disorder, while old people may experience difficulty from maturing joints. Numerous knee issues emerge from harm to the delicate tissues (the ligament and tendons) inside the joint. It has become a very common disorder that has affected a lot of people in the United States.

  • Sprains and strains
  • Overuse
  • Infection
  • Not warming up or cooling down before or after physical activity

WHEN TO CONSULT A DOCTOR?

  • It is important to identify the symptoms at an early stage and get medical help. Symptoms that you should watch on:
  • Swelling and stiffness
