Knee Pain Q & A

What are the causes of knee pain?

Some of the common reasons for experiencing knee pain include:


Arthritis is a term for numerous joint diseases that are among the most frequent causes of knee pain.

Ligament injuries

Ligament injuries typically occur during athletic activities. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL) sprains are the most likely.

Cartilage injuries

Injuries can affect the articular cartilage covering your bones or the menisci — cartilage wedges in the knee.

Patellar tendonitis

The patellar tendon is the large one at the front of the knee. Tendonitis is inflammation in the tendon.

Chondromalacia patella

Chondromalacia patella, also called runner’s knee, causes pain under the kneecap due to a softening of the cartilage. It’s most common in 15- to 35-year-olds.

Dislocated kneecap 

A dislocated kneecap causes acute pain when it happens but can also lead to chronic knee problems.

Baker’s cyst 

A Baker’s cyst is a swollen area at the back of the knee. It’s usually a sign of an underlying problem like a meniscus tear.


Knee bursitis (inflammation of the cushioning bursae in the joint) is most common in people who spend a lot of time kneeling, like gardeners.

What symptoms occur with knee pain?

Knee pain often occurs with other such symptoms as:

  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Redness
  • Heat in the joint
  • Weakness
  • Instability
  • Popping or crunching noises

You might be unable to fully straighten your knee or bear weight on that leg.

Treating knee pain successfully requires an accurate diagnosis. Your provider at Pain Management of North Dallas, PA, performs a physical examination and might need to look at X-rays or diagnostic imaging scans like a CT or MRI to confirm the cause of your knee pain.
