Non-invasive treatments for knee pain at The Pain Relief Practice

Other Diseases and Syndromes Causing Knee Pain

Osgood-Schlatter disease is pain caused by repetitive stresses placed on the growth area of the upper shin bone. The tendon that holds the kneecap in place becomes inflamed and causes knee pain. It usually occurs in active children 10 to 15 years old and may recur until the child stops growing. Iliotibial Band Syndrome causes pain when a band of tissue rubs over an outer section of bone and causes inflammation. It is usually localized and the pain is felt from the knee up through the thigh. Another syndrome causing knee pain is plica syndrome. In plica, bands of joint tissue called plicae,retained from fetal development, become irritated from overuse.
