Knee pain can be very disruptive, affecting our ability to walk properly. At The Bone and Joint Centre, we provide credible, up-to-date and personalised treatments to help you get back on track as soon as possible.
Don’t Ignore the Pain!
Many people brush off knee pain, thinking that it will either heal on its own, or that the pain is still bearable, or that knee pain is normal in old age and cannot be helped.
While true in some cases, do bear in mind that:
  • You may be unaware of an underlying, more serious condition
  • Delayed treatment can often result in the condition worsening
  • Knee pain in old age may be common, but it doesn’t have to be – symptomatic and curative treatments exist!

What are Some Common Causes of Knee Pain?
Knee injuries are often sustained during sports activities, which include:
01 | Ligament Injuries
Caused by sudden stops or quick changes in direction, twisting, or a direct impact to the knee.
02 | Meniscus Injuries
Caused by a sudden twist or trauma to the knee, and can occur together with ligament injuries.
03 | Bursitis
Knee bursae are fluid-filled sacs that reduce friction between moving joints. When inflamed or damaged due to repetitive motions or a direct blow, bursitis occurs.
04 | Knee Dislocation
Caused by a sharp blow to the knee or a sudden change in direction when the foot is already planted on the ground.
05 | Patellar Fracture
Caused by a direct fall onto the kneecap or direct trauma to the kneecap.
06 | Tendonitis
An overuse injury resulting from suddenly subjecting oneself to more intensive and repetitive exercises, causing the knee’s tendons to become inflamed.
Arthritis of the Knee
Arthritis also commonly causes pain and stiffness to the knee, with common types being osteoarthritis (characterised by cartilage degeneration) and rheumatoid arthritis (when healthy joint tissues are attacked by the immune system).
