TCM Knee Pain Treatment Singapore
Consult TCM Sports Medicine Specialist
Your knees bear the most weight of any joint in your body. They’re responsible for balance and stability and are in constant demand. The knees are also the joints most prone to injury. Knee injury and knee pain are usually attributed to improper functioning and damage to the complex cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles of the knee.
Knee Pain Symptoms
Due to the complex structure of the knee, pain can present in many different areas. Back of knee pain and front of knee pain are indicative of different unique damage, as is pain on the sides of the knee or pain inside the knee. Severe knee pain when running, walking, going up and down stairs, and even knee pain while sitting are all frequent complaints.
In addition to knee pain symptoms, weakness and instability are very common. Stiffness in the knee or a locking sensation may prevent you from fully extending or bending the knee. If accompanied by knee pain, popping, clicking, or grinding sounds when kneeling or squatting may indicate knee damage.
Untreated knee pain or knee injury may subside temporarily, but return years later as chronic knee pain. Seeking treatment proactively can help prevent a one-time injury from becoming an all-the-time pain.
