Types of Knee Injury
I.C.E. DOWN Knee Ice Wraps
Knee injuries are a common source of pain. They often heal slowly or never heal fully, and some types of knee injury can lead to other, more serious injuries. Although the risk of knee injury increases with age, knee injury can occur at any age. I.C.E. DOWN knee ice wraps can give you relief from knee injury pain and help your knee injury heal faster.
Ligaments connect bone to bone. In the knees, ligaments provide stability. Ligament injury is also referred to as a sprain. It occurs when the ligament is overstretched, and in some cases, torn. Ligaments in the knee which may be injured include:
Runner's knee occurs when the kneecap puts excessive wear and tear on the cartilage. There are many possible underlying causes, but generally it happens when the kneecap is not moving properly due to a problem with the thigh muscles, foot, or form.
Runner's knee is an overuse injury that can affect anyone, not just people who run or jog. Symptoms include:
Torn cartilage is another common knee injury. Wedges made of cartilage, called meniscus, sit between the bones keeping weight evenly distributed, providing cushion, and giving the knee stability. Symptoms of meniscus tear include:
Arthritis can also damage the cartilage in the knee, typically affecting the cartilage on the surfaces of the bones rather than the meniscus.
In arthritis, the cartilage can wear away until the bone is exposed, causing severe pain. Arthritis can lead to deformity of the knee.
Tendonitis of the knee is sometimes referred to as jumper's knee. It typically strikes the patellar tendon. This tendon connects the kneecap to the shinbone and is used when straightening your leg. Tendonitis is inflammation of the tendon.
