Knee Injuries

What Causes Knee Pain?

As a runner and sports medicine practitioner, I commonly see people with a variety of knee injuries. The causes of the knee pain are varied and often result from a combination of environmental, physical, and physiological factors. Knee pain can be caused by:

  • Repetitive motion injuries

  • Muscle imbalances

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Tendonitis

  • Ligament injuries

  • Meniscus injuries

  • Illiotibal Band Syndrome

  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease

  • A variety of pathological processes. Pathological causes of knee pain are rare compared to the more common mechanical causes of knee pain.

These conditions, if left untreated, can often lead to an ongoing cycle of biomechanical imbalances which eventually lead to ongoing pain and degeneration of the knee, as well as hip, low back, shoulder, or neck problems.
