Your knee can get irritated even if you are hard to move – what will help then?

BENDING, CROSSING, ROTATION, REMOVAL AND APPROACH – The knee joint must be able to perform quite complex tricks. In addition, this largest joint in our body is supported by our body weight largely on the basis of various ligaments. No wonder the knee is more sensitive to pain than usual.

– Various stress injuries, cartilage damage caused by the injury and ruptures of the articular spiral are common in athletes, says a specialist in orthopedics and traumatology Mikko Jokela.

Stress injury often occurs when exercise is increased unnecessarily. The pain is located in the front of the knee, where the tendons attach.

Lighten, stretch, change species

The symptoms are reduced by relieving the strain. Sometimes it also helps to change the sport for a while, for example from running to cycling or swimming.

Strengthening the thigh muscles is an a and o of everything, but stretching exercises are also worth a try.

The cause of knee pain is almost always unclear. Even then, it is worth trying to move and use your knee despite the pain, because the right kind of exercise will cure even sore joints.

– It is comforting that almost all the anger of a knee that started for an unknown reason is healing, Mikko Jokela knows.

The knee of a runner or jumper?

The so-called runner’s knee, despite its name, can come even if it never runs. It is a pain that locates on the outside of the knee. This is thought to be due to the fact that the membrane tendon rubs against the outermost articular pin of the femur.

The jumper’s knee, on the other hand, is the case if the lower tip of the patella hurts initially after performing a sport. As the symptom worsens, the pain may be felt even during exercise.

– The pain is caused by a small irritation and overload of the patella. Rest and NSAIDs help both ailments at worst. After that, it is important to strengthen the muscles of the legs.

Joint screw intact or removed

The knee has two articulated coils that cushion the impact and support the knee. The coil may rupture partially or completely as a result of torsional movement.

In this case, there is pain in the knee and the knee may become locked so that it cannot be extended straight.

A damaged coil can sometimes be sutured during endoscopic surgery. If sewing is not possible, the torn part of the coil is removed in surgery if necessary.

– A mere pain symptom and a helical rupture are not usually the cause of endoscopic surgery. And after the procedures, knee rehabilitation is important.

Strong thigh muscle is the best insurance

The quadriceps supports the patella and ligaments, so strengthening it is important in preventing all knee problems.

Take special care of it! Regular jogging does not significantly improve muscle strength, but requires exercise cycling or a leg press.
