Your Knee Pain

What is that pain in your knee(s)?
If you often feel knee pain during your daily activities or feel persistent knee pain almost constantly, despite not practicing vigorous sports, such knee pain may be attributable to joint disease. Let's check your knee pain.

Which diseases are responsible for knee pain?

- Osteoarthritis of the knee

Osteoarthritis of the kneeThe disease most frequently causing knee pain is osteoarthritis of the knee. If left untreated, osteoarthritis of the knee causes intense pain and swelling, occasionally making it difficult to walk. If the disease is treated at early stages, the pain associated with this disease can be controlled.
In patients with this disease, the tissue called "cartilage" or "meniscus," which covers the knee bones and absorbs mechanical shocks delivered to the knee, may be injured or become shredded. If the disease advances, the cartilage or meniscus becomes worn out, eventually leading to exposure of the knee bone.

- Other diseases

Other diseases which can cause knee pain include those involving destruction of the cartilage surface or injury of the meniscus following excessive use of the knees during sports, etc. (traumatic arthropathy), rheumatic disease (rheumatoid arthritis), diseases involving sudden death of cells constituting the knee bone (bone necrosis), diseases involving knee bone destruction due to neuropathy (neuropathic arthropathy), and so on.
Each of these diseases requires treatment by specialists. If you feel any unusual sensations in your knee, consult an orthopedic surgeon without delay.
