The Location of Your Knee Pain Symptoms

If you’re suffering from knee pain that is severe or has persisted more than a few weeks, you should see a chiropractor or physical therapist. However, the location of your knee pain can help you determine the issue before starting physical therapy in Valrico, FL.

If you feel pain in the front of the knee, there may be a problem with the tracking and position of the kneecap. When this occurs, the tendon between the kneecap and the shin may become inflamed and painful.

Pain in the back of the knee is rare, but is likely due to a hamstring strain or what is known as a Baker’s cyst. This is an abnormal swelling of the knee joint that occupies space in the back of the knee.

If you have pain on the inside portion of the knee, there is likely an injury to the medial meniscus or medial collateral ligament. The medial meniscus is a shock absorber located inside the knee, and it often suffers from wear and tear or arthritis. These structures are usually damaged as a result of a sports injury.

Finally, pain on the outside aspect of your knee can mean that a ligament there was injured during athletic activity. Pain here can also be caused by iliotibial band (ITB) stress, which is a thick band of tissue that runs from the outside of your hip to the front of your knee. On the outside part of the knee is also one of three hamstring tendons, so strain to this may also be a source of pain.
