Knee Pain

Etiology There are many causes of pain in or around the knee in athletes, especially in runners, including: subluxation of the patella during flexion of the knee chondromalacia the underside of the patella (runner’s knee, with softening of the patella cartilage chondromalacia patella) Intra-articular pathology such meniscus tear and plicae (folds of mucous membrane in the normal synovial lining of the knee) fat body inflammatory stress fractures of the tibia deformity of the lower limbs patellar (or infrapatellar) tendinitis (jumper’s knee – overloading injury to the patellar tendon at the base of the lower pole of the patella, infrapatellar tendinitis) knee pain can of the lumbar spine or hip or out (of the feet such. as excessive pronation or rolling of the foot during walking or running). Diagnosis For diagnosis is a thorough review of the training program of the athlete needed, including a history of the onset of symptoms and the worsening factors and a full investigation of the leg (knee examination, investigation in patients with joint diseases: Medical examination and Knieverstauchungen and meniscus injuries). Mechanical symptoms such as the blocking or the engagement point to an internal failure of the knee down like a meniscus tear. Instability symptoms such. B. yielding and power loss of the extremity upon rotation of the knee are signs of ligament damage or subluxation of the patella. Chondromalacia is characterized by pain on the knee front after running out, especially when running downhill, as well as pain and stiffness after prolonged and also shorter seats (in the Anglo-American usage often referred to as a “positive sign movie” hereinafter). On examination, the pain can typically be provoked by compression of the patella against the femur. Pain that is worse with weight, suggest a stress fracture. Treatment The treatment depends on the specific cause. The treatment of chondromalacia includes strengthening exercises of the quadriceps and hamstring exercises appropriate in Hyperpronation as a possible contributor to a arch support and NSAIDs. In a subluxation pads or rails may be necessary to stabilize the patella, especially in sports, the rapid and vigorous movements in different planes require (z. B. basketball or tennis). When excessive pronation of the foot and the exclusion of all other possible causes of knee pain, the use of a brace can sometimes be useful. Stress fractures require rest and avoiding heavy lifting. Intra-articular pathology often requires surgery.
