Knee injuries vary widely in severity and cause a wide range of symptoms. Common symptoms of knee injuries to be aware of include:
General soreness and stiffness are the most common types of knee pain that may arise from daily activities that cause wear and tear. Trauma is more likely to cause more obvious and severe symptoms that require immediate medical attention.
The most dangerous movement for the knee is a combination of twisting and bending. This places the knee under tension that can injure ligaments and muscles surrounding the knee and compressive forces that can injure the menisci inside your knee. Other potential movements that injure knees include:
Excess body weight or postural changes due to pregnancy can contribute to knee pain as well. Losing weight or improving your posture may reduce or eliminate your knee pain completely.
