  • Ligament Tear Pain

Ligament tear pain comes as a direct blow or mechanical force to your knee. This may cause the knee ligaments to tear resulting in the knee swelling and tends to create quite a bit of pain and instability in your knee down to your foot.

  • Osteoarthritis Pain

Osteoarthritis pain occurs when the knee cartilage gets damaged or worn out. The pain proceeds gradually and can eminently turn out to be chronic.

  • Anterior Knee Pain

Anterior knee pain occurs when the knee cap shifts in position.

  • Lateral Knee Pain

In the case of lateral knee pain, the pain occurs on the outside of the knee and is due to the irritation of the iliotibial knee tendon.

  • Medial Knee Pain

One might feel the medial knee pain from the inside of the knee and is mostly due to the injury of the medial meniscus.

These different types of knee pain present themselves more prominently with activities that require movement of the knee such as walking, kicking or climbing and may be hard and painful.
