Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Knee pain affects approximately 25% of adults in the United States. A fall, trauma, or other acute injuries can cause knee pain, though it might also be a symptom of a more severe underlying disease.

The rise of obesity in the United States also explains the increasing prevalence of knee pain: Excess weight puts pressure on the knee joint, weakening it over time leading to early onset osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis causes knee pain and hip pain too. It degrades the cartilage that protects the upper and lower leg bones that meet in the knee and hip joint, allowing the bones to grind together. That irritates the nerves and surrounding tissues, thus causing swelling and pain that makes it difficult to move your legs.

The following injuries and disorders also cause knee pain:

• Fractures

• Arthritis

• Patellar tendinitis

• Tears in the ACL

• Hip or foot pain that redistributes weight onto the knee

• Iliotibial band syndrome

• Meniscus tear

• Sports injuries

What are other symptoms of knee damage?

Your knee may not hurt, but other signs and symptoms may indicate damage to the knee joint, ligaments, and tendons:

• Chronic stiffness

• Warmth and redness

• A crunching or popping sound when you move your knee

• Limping

• Being unable to put weight on your knee
