What causes knee pain?
The reason behind Knee pain can be many such as overuse, injuries, damage to the ligaments, growing pain, and degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis or inflammation of the tendons or bursa, just to mention a few.
During the physical exam, the practitioner will inspect your knee for swelling, pain, tenderness, warmth and visible bruising, check to see how far you can move your lower leg in different directions and their strength, As well as tests will be done to assess the integrity of the joint and ligaments.
In some cases, there might be the need for imaging Tests such as X-rays which can help detect bone fractures and degenerative joint disease or instead CT scan or MRI scan is particularly useful in revealing injuries to soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and muscles.
Sometimes Lab tests such as blood tests can be advised if there is a suspicion of an infection or inflammation.
