  2. The knee is one of the most common body parts to be injured. Types of common knee injuries include sprains, strains, bursitis, dislocations, fractures, meniscus tears, and overuse injuries. Knee injuries are generally caused by twisting or bending force applied to the knee, or a direct blow, such as from sports, falls, or accidents.

  3. Mar 04, 2021 · Knee Injury Signs and Symptoms Two tell-tale signs of a knee injury are pain and swelling of the knee. You may also have difficulty with the joint moving. It may feel stiff, lock up, or feel like it’s catching as you bend and straighten your leg. If you hear your knee pop and then give out at the time of impact, it’s definitely a cause for concern.

  4. Knee injuries involve trauma to one or more tissues that make up the knee joint: ligaments, tendons, cartilage, bones and muscles. These types of injuries may happen due to a fall, forceful twisting of the knee or high impact from a motor vehicle accident or another force. Common knee injuries include fractures, dislocations, tears and sprains.

    • Bones. Three bones meet to form your knee joint: your thighbone (femur), shinbone (tibia), and kneecap (patella).
    • Articular cartilage. The ends of the femur and tibia, and the back of the patella are covered with articular cartilage. This slippery substance helps your knee bones glide smoothly across each other as you bend or straighten your leg.
    • Meniscus. Two wedge-shaped pieces of meniscal cartilage act as "shock absorbers" between your femur and tibia. Different from articular cartilage, the meniscus is tough and rubbery to help cushion and stabilize the joint.
    • Ligaments. Bones are connected to other bones by ligaments. The four main ligaments in your knee act like strong ropes to hold the bones together and keep your knee stable.
