Knee Pain FAQs
Osteoarthritis is a common condition caused by a breakdown or loss of cartilage and other joint-supporting tissues in the knee. Common signs and symptoms include:
- Swelling & inflammation
- Cracking, grinding, or popping noises
- Weakness in the knees
- Stiffness or “locking” of the knees
The ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) is a band of fibrous tissue that connects and holds your knee joint together. ACL tears are most common in athletes but can strike anyone during any activity. Typically, ACL injuries occur when changing direction suddenly, jumping, or when an outside force changes the position of your knee forcefully when your foot is planted firmly on the ground.
The most frequent and immediate symptom of an ACL tear is acute pain. ACL tears may also present as a loud popping noise from the knee, rapid swelling, the inability to bear weight on the injured leg, and a severe limitation to your range of motion. If you notice any of these symptoms, don’t hesitate to contact the recognized orthopedic doctors at Palmetto Bone and Joint.
