Knee pain is a common condition affecting individuals from different age groups. It not only affects movement but also impacts the quality of life of the individual. An injury or disease of the knee joint or any structure surrounding the knee can result in knee pain. Some of the common causes include arthritis, knee ligament injuries, torn meniscus and dislocated kneecap. A precise diagnosis of the underlying cause is important to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
The knee is one of the largest joints in the body, formed by the lower end of the femur, upper end of the tibia and the patella or knee cap. Several ligaments and muscles attach to the bones of the knee joint to maintain normal motion of the joint. Special cartilaginous tissues known as menisci are placed between the two articular ends of the joint. These act as a cushion between the articular surfaces and absorb the shock during movement. The soft tissues of the knee joint include anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and collateral ligaments.
