A torn meniscus is one of the most common knee injuries. A meniscus tear often happens during sports; however it can affect anyone at any age. Because the knee cartilage weakens with age, older people are more likely to experience a tear by accidentally twisting the knee during everyday activities.
Other causes of knee pain include bursitis, fractures, and knee arthritis.
Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa, a lubricating sac located between the bone and tendon, enabling smooth movement of the kneecap. It is caused by constant pressure on the bursa (a lot of kneeling) or by a direct blow to the knee.
Because the knee is made of and surrounded by various bones, a fracture to any of them may affect the entire knee function. Fractures to the femur, tibia, and fibula can be caused by blows or falls, often associated with sports. Motor vehicle accidents are another common cause, while elderly people may suffer a fracture from a lower energy injury due to weakened bones.
Fractures to the patella (kneecap) are mostly caused by a direct fall or blow to the knee. If the patella is displaced, surgery is usually required.
Pulsed Electero Magnetic therapy stimulates bone growth in fractures and relieves pain associated with connective and soft tissue injuries.
