Knee pain represents almost 1/3 of all musculoskeletal disorders and there are joints which report most injuries in young active people. The main parts of the knee are joint bones, cartilage, joint membranes, menisci, ligaments and mucous bags. The ligaments and muscles are around the knee joint. Knee pain can occur in many ways, and can vary in intensity and type. “Noise” and swelling contributes to the correct diagnosis. Locking knee joints can indicate a meniscus injury, while a “popping” sound may indicate ligament damage. Swelling coming 24 hours or recurrent swelling may indicate meniscal and / or ligament damage.
