Why do I have knee pain?
Your knees are like hinges, which are joined together only to perform a forward and backward movement. They make you able to perform any sort of physical activity while maintaining stability and don’t let you fall over.
The pain you feel may just be from the joint themselves. It may also originate as a result of some other conditions which you may not be able to see physically, but they do exist. Your knees are a part of a chain, a kinetic chain that is interconnected with each other, and a little displacement in one joining can affect another. For example, a displaced hip joint may affect the weight-bearing joints in your knees, causing a sharp knee pain to occur, whenever you try to move.
What causes knee pain?
Knees are in constant use and are always overworked; this may lead to overuse injuries such as tendinitis and chronic muscle strain. But you can expect knees to be affected by acute injuries such as sprains, strains, and dislocations.
There is a nerve known as the sciatic nerve which travels through the knees, and if that nerve is somewhat pinched or in a tighter space, it can lead to pain in the knees. Arthritis can also be a symptom of knee pain as it may be a cause of premature wear and tear in your knees. Imbalanced stance or gaits can also induce extra stress on your knees resulting in further pain.
A few conditions with the hips may likewise impact torment felt in the knees, as the hips are too a piece of that equivalent active chain. For instance, the Mayo Clinic expresses that ligament wounds known as labral tears are explicit to hip agony, while aggravation of the bursa sacs known as bursitis is a particular condition influencing the knee joint.

Tight hip flexor muscles and frail gluteus medius muscles can make the hip turn internal without you understanding it. This can cause difficult issues, for example, iliotibial band grinding condition or patellofemoral stress disorder, as stress put on the kneecap.

The front cruciate tendon (ACL) is situated in the knee and can be harmed or torn when it is brutally contorted in an incorrect manner. Upper leg tendon tears are particularly regular in competitors, counting the individuals who take an interest in sports, for example, acrobatic, football, soccer, tennis, or downhill skiing. Every one of these games requires abrupt stops and alters in course, making the hazard higher for bending the knee the incorrect way and continuing an ACL injury.
