Knee pain can often be severe, and it can prevent you from living your life to the fullest.

Knee pain is one of the most common types of joint pain, It can be localized to one specific area of the knee, or it can spread throughout the knee. There are bony structures which comprise the knee joint, as well as ligaments and cartilage in the knee joint. Any of these structures could be the source of your knee pain. Knee pain could be the result of an injury, an infection, or a complication of a medical condition. The traditional knee pain treatment you see is typically in the form of surgery or medication.

Causes and Symptoms of Knee Pain

The severity of knee pain can vary, from a minor ache to a severe, disabling pain. There are many causes of knee pain, such as:

  • Infection

  • Fracture of the kneecap

  • A Baker cyst (which usually causes pain in the back of the knee)

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Acute injury, such as a torn ligament, broken bone or meniscal tear

  • Patellar Syndrome

  • Tendinitis

  • Bursitis

  • Anterior cruciate ligament injury (usually a sports injury)

  • Knee dislocation (can be a medical emergency as blood flow to the
    leg could be compromised)

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Septic arthritis

  • Gout

  • Osgood-Schlatter disease (in children)

  • Excess weight

  • Overuse during repetitive motions

 

Symptoms of knee problems include:

  • Instability of the knee

  • Difficulty walking

  • Discomfort-caused limp

  • Inability to bend knee

  • Inability to extend the knee

  • Redness and swelling

  • Shifting weight to the opposite knee and foot

  • Pain—either intermittent or chronic, minor to severe

The shoulder is an innately unstable joint

Shoulder injuries can result from chronic overuse, lifting too much, or from high impact force. Repetitive sports like gold, tennis, baseball, and even swimming can damage this overly flexible joint.

 

Common Problems with Shoulder Joints

Arthritis: Shoulder arthritis can occur as the cartilage inside the ball and socket of the shoulder joint breaks down. Cartilage protects the surface of the bones located in your shoulder joint. Many factors can cause your cartilage to erode and cause your shoulder bones to rub painfully.

Bursitis: This condition is caused by the inflammation of the shoulder joint that comes into contact with tendons.

Rotator cuff tears: The rotator cuff is a complex structure that connects the humerus to the shoulder blade, and it also makes it possible for the shoulder joint to move and remain stable. When the rotator cuff is compromised, shoulder pain, stiffness, and a loss of motion become the result.

Labral Tears: The labrum is responsible for reinforcing the ball-and-socket joint of the shoulder. It allows for the shoulder bones to move freely and painlessly. When you tear your shoulder labrum due to physical trauma or prolonged wear and tear, you may suffer from pain and a limited range of motion.

Chronic hip pain often develops in those over the age of 50

Chronic hip pain often develops in those over the age of 50, but can occur earlier, especially in those who are overweight or who have had a previous hip injury or surgery. Some people are born with abnormalities of the joint that put them at higher risk for hip issues as well.

Common symptoms of hip problems include:

  • Groin pain

  • Limping

  • Decreased range of motion and stiffness

  • Tenderness around the front or back of the hip

  • Clicking, popping, or locking of the joint
