The state of pain and swelling is a symptom that usually arises from tissue injury, and the condition can also occur in the knee.

Some of the most common types of injuries to the knee joint are:

• Rupture of muscle and tendon connective tissue in the knee joint

• The kneecap shifts from its position

• Shifting of the junction of the end of the femur with the end of the calf bone

To determine what the actual situation requires anamnesis (answers from the patient to questions about the history and how it happened until complaints arise). And supporting examination in the form of x-ray.

Symptoms of swelling and pain are also often complained of by patients with knee joint disorders, especially in patients with structural damage to the cartilage of the knee joint tissue (Osteoarthritis).

In this case the swelling and pain did not appear immediately, but long before there had been a special knee disorder in the joint. These disorders can be in the form of damage to the joint structure, generally in the cartilage tissue which functions as a cushion between the ends of the bones.

For some reason this cartilage is eroded little by little until finally nothing remains. The breakdown of this cartilage causes the upper end of the calf bone to rub and come into direct contact with the lower end of the femur. Gradually the ends of these bones are also degraded and eroded into damage.

The body naturally responds to damage to the ends of these bones by forming new bone (the layman calls it calcification) at the ends of the two bones with a harder consistency. Unfortunately the newly grown bone is irregular in shape, the meeting and friction between the two newly growing bones is inevitable and causes the pain to get worse.

What and how the origin of the cause of the incident?

Although there are several reasons that are thought to trigger damage to the knee joint, there are 2 most prominent reasons, namely:

  1. A hard impact on the knee, could be due to sports accidents, traffic accidents or other accidents, lead to knee joint injury.
  2. Large and continuous compressive load, caused by overweight/obesity

As an illustration of the cartilage that is prone to injury as shown in the image below:
