Medical Conditions that can cause knee pain?
Osteoarthritis – wear-and-tear arthritis, is a condition in which the natural cushioning between joints — cartilage — wears away. When this happens, the bones of the joints rub more closely against one another with less of the shock-absorbing benefits of cartilage. The rubbing results in pain, swelling, stiffness, decreased ability to move and, sometimes, the formation of bone spurs.
Rheumatoid Arthritis – An inflammatory and immunological condition that can affect more than one joint at a time. Tends to occur more in women than men.
Osgood-schlatters disease – is inflammation of the patellar ligament at the tibial tuberosity. It is characterized by a painful bump just below the knee that is worse with activity and better with rest. It’s a developmental condition that tends to occur in young boys that often do alot of activities and sports
Gout – a form of inflammatory arthritis characterized by recurrent attacks of a red, tender, hot, and swollen joint. Pain typically comes on rapidly in less than twelve hours. The joint at the base of the big toe. Gout is due to elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. This occurs due to a combination of diet and genetic factors.
