Knee Pain in More than Just a Knee Joint Problem

Our knee joint is formed between 3 bones, the high bone (femur), the shin bone (tibia) and the knee cap (patella). These knee bones require the strength of our quadriceps and hamstring muscles to support our knee joint. The hamstring, found on the back of the thigh contracts to allow bending of the knee while the quadriceps, found on the front of the thigh contracts to straighten the knee. If you find it difficult to squat down, you may have weak hamstring muscles. If you have difficult in standing up from your chair, you may have weak quadriceps muscles.

 

Weak or Tight Muscles Wear Down the Knee Cartilage

A lack of muscles strength and flexibility are among the leading causes of knee pain and injuries. Sitting or standing for long hours often cause weakening or tightening of muscles which will pull the kneecap in an unnatural way, displacing it. Hence, this creates an imbalanced pressure which exerts stress and restricts blood and oxygen flow to the knee, causing pain. This wears down the knee cartilage that cushion the joints and if the cartilage wears down completely, you may be left with bone rubbing on bone which could result in excruciating pain with any movement of the knee.
