You can injure your knee in many ways, and each may have a different effect. That’s because your knee joint is a complex structure of bones, cartilage, muscles, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues. While a swollen knee is the first indication of an injury, how it plays out depends on the actual injury. Call Redefine Healthcare knee injury doctor Dr. Freeman for an accurate assessment and effective knee injury treatment.

Knee injuries can strike because of added stress on your knees, as well as normal wear and tear, which means that the older you get, the more likely you are to injure a knee.

At the same time, you can develop a torn tendon or ligament from twisting your leg while involved in any activity from aerobic dance to a pick-up basketball game.

Knee pain usually occurs when you damage the cartilage or the knee joint.

Signs that you’ve injured your knee include:

  • A swollen knee that’s painful
  • Inability to bend or fully straighten your knee
  • Popping or cracking sounds whenever you move your knee
  • A knee that gives way suddenly
  • Loss of muscle strength and flexibility
  • Redness and warmth to the touch

Common Causes of Knee Pain

You can injure a knee from a direct trauma, wear and tear or an awkward twist. Other conditions tend to weaken your knee, making it more susceptible to injury.

Factors that may make it easier for you to suffer a knee injury include:

  • Being overweight. Obesity causes your knees to buckle under the extra weight, especially when you climb stairs. When you carry extra weight, your muscles tend to become less flexible and actually lose strength when you’re not exercising. As a result, your knees may feel jerky and unstable, and that feeling can contribute to an injury.
  • Playing sports. If you love playing sports, the jumping, bending, kicking and twisting may cause problems with your knees. It’s especially dangerous if you overdo it or take up a physical activity after being inactive for a while. Certain sports, like running and jogging, are especially hard on your knees.
  • Working at certain jobs. Your job may be hard on your body, including your knees. Knees often develop problems if you tend to carry heavy objects for long distances. If you have to bend your knees to squat or kneel constantly while you work, you can end up with knee problems and injuries. Scrubbing floors and gardening can cause a knee injury.
  • Other factors. Wearing improper shoes for your activities — whether it’s playing a sport, walking for exercise or doing chores around the house — increases your chances of suffering a knee injury. Previous knee injuries also increase your risks.
