Some of the most common causes of pain are things like: arthritis, ligament injuries, cartilage injuries/tears, tendonitis, bursitis, or a dislocated kneecap. The pain can really keep you in the sidelines of life
Many of the problems people have with their knees stems from overuse. Playing sports like basketball, football, tennis, and hockey can put a lot of stress on the joints. Some people develop a conditions such as Runner’s Knee or Jumper’s knee.
Runner’s knee causes pain underneath the kneecap (also known as patellar or patella). You develop the condition when the kneecap runs against the joint. This causes the knee cartilage to become irritated and painful. This condition is also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome or chondromalacia patella. This condition can stem from activities common in running.
Jumper’s knee occurs when the patellar tendon in the knee and tissues that surround it become irritated and inflamed. This tendon connects the kneecap to the shin bone. Jumper’s knee pain increases especially when jumping. It is also known as patella tendonitis. The condition usually stems from overuse and especially from jumping activities.
