Conditions of the Knee

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries (ACL)

One of the most common injuries to the knee and is a sprain or tear that often requires surgery. An ACL injury can be the result of several activities, including slowing down while running, a sudden stop, a sudden change in direction, direct contact or a collision, and landing from a jump incorrectly.

Collateral Ligament Injuries

This is a common sports injury where the knee ligament tears or is sprained usually caused by a force that pushes the knee sideways. Common symptoms include pain at the sides of your knee, swelling, and a feeling that your knee is giving way.

Jumper's Knee

Also known as “runner’s knee” or medically as patellofemoral pain syndrome. This condition often occurs when nerves sense pain in the bone and soft tissues around the kneecap, usually caused by repeated stress from physical activities.

Knee Arthritis

Inflammation in the joints of the knee can cause swelling, stiffness, and pain caused by disease or wear and tear of the cartilage.

Meniscus Injuries

A common knee injury that is found among athletes who play contact sports is caused by torn cartilage in the knee. Some of the symptoms include pain, stiffness, swelling, loss of range of motion, and the feeling of the knee giving way.

Osgood-Schlatter Disease

This is a common disease in growing adolescents and is inflammation just below the knee where the tendon from the knee attaches to the shinbone. This occurs during growth spurts and can be felt worse if participating in athletics.

Prepatellar Bursitis

This condition is inflammation of the small sac of fluid in front of the knee cap and causes several problems in the knee. The inflammation can be caused by a sudden injury to the knee or repetitive injury, such as frequently working while on your knees. Symptoms include pain and swelling as well as small bumps if the condition has been present for a long time.
