Knee osteoarthritis is a prevalent degenerative joint condition affecting the knees. It primarily involves the cartilage within the joint breaking down, leading to pain, stiffness, and decreased joint function. The condition often results from wear and tear or ageing and can also be linked to obesity, previous knee injuries, or genetic predispositions.
Patellar tendinitis, also known as jumper’s knee, is an injury that affects the tendon connecting the kneecap (patella) to the shinbone. It’s typically caused by repetitive stress on the patellar tendon, often due to activities that involve jumping or running.
An anterior cruciate ligament tear, often called an ACL tear, is like a stretchy band inside your knee snapping. Your knee has ligaments that hold it together, and when the ACL tears, it can lead to pain, swelling, and instability in the knee.
