“Am I stuck with inner knee pain for the rest of my life?”
“I guess I’ll just have to learn to live with it.”
If you suffer from inner knee pain, it’s a safe assumption that you have asked these questions at one time in your life.
However, it does not have to be this way!
There are fast and effective ways to treat your inner knee pain without relying on short-term solutions that leave your pain subdued but always present, such as painkillers, injections, and even surgery.
In order to treat your inner knee pain quickly and effectively, it is essential that you first understand the cause. That way you can target specific pain points with tailored exercises and make adjustments in your lifestyle that could be causing your inner knee pain.
Cause 1 – Sprains and Strains
Knee sprains and strains are common in people who engage in sports or physical activities, particularly those that involve running, jumping, or changing direction quickly such as soccer, basketball, or football.
They can occur in people of all ages but are especially common in athletes and active individuals between the ages of 15 and 25.
What Are The Symptoms Of Knee Sprains and Strains?
- Pain and tenderness in the knee
- Difficulty bending the knee or moving it fully
- A feeling of instability or the knee giving way
Cause 2 – Tendonitis
Tendonitis, a common cause of inner knee pain, is often the result of inflammation or irritation of one or more tendons in the area. This is typically due to overuse, making athletes and those with physically demanding jobs more susceptible.
While anyone can get tendonitis, it’s more prevalent in adults over 40. As we age, our tendons can lose their elasticity and become weaker, making them more prone to injury.
Interestingly, research suggests that men might be slightly more likely than women to suffer from this condition, particularly in sports-related contexts. However, it can affect anyone who repeatedly puts stress on the same tendons.
What Are The Tell-Tale Signs Of Tendonitis?
- Persistent pain that worsens with movement
- Tenderness or swelling in the affected area
- A lump along the tendon
- Difficulty moving the affected joint
Cause 3 – Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis, it is in fact the most common type of arthritis and affects millions of people worldwide.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease, which occurs when the protective cartilage cushioning the ends of your bones wears down over time. This condition often results in increased friction and inflammation in the joints, including the inner knee, causing discomfort and pain.
While osteoarthritis can affect anyone, it’s more prevalent in women than men. It’s also typically seen in individuals over the age of 50, though younger people can also be affected due to injury or overuse.
What Are The Signs That You Might Be Dealing With Osteoarthritis?
- Persistent joint pain that worsens after activity or toward the end of the day
- Joint stiffness, particularly in the morning or after periods of inactivity
- Swelling around the knee area
- Limited range of motion that makes it difficult to perform daily tasks
