There are different types of knee injuries that cause pain, stiffness, locked joints, and swelling-tenderness. Twisting your knee can cause misaligned knee joints; sudden injury can lead to the overstretching of the muscle and tendon (strain) or the ligaments to tear (sprain).
Chronic Conditions: Knee structures like the muscle, tendon, or ligaments can become overused due to repetitive motions like going upstairs and downstairs, and playing your favorite sports. Running, muscle weakness, poor posture, misaligned joint in foot-ankle -knee, and arthritis in the joints are some factors that cause soft tissue to inflame and stiffen, which increases the pain with motion, and interrupts your daily routine and sleep.
Acute Condition: Sudden trauma to the knee joints, slip and fall, sport injuries and car accidents are all examples of how sudden impact can result in acute pain.
