Horrible Knee Pain
Jul 06, 2018

Do you have horrible knee pain?

If so, then it is a good idea to face the pain before it gets worse.

Read on for some helpful information and at the end we discuss some ways to help support your knee...

The Construction of the Knee

The knee is essentially a ball and socket joint at which the two leg bones of each leg are joined. These two bones are connected by a series of ligaments and tendons. The outside of the knee is covered by a plate of bone known as the kneecap or patella. Together, these components make up the knee.

The Role of the Patella

The patella serves the functions of protecting the knee. The knee joint is rather fragile as the tendons and ligaments holding the two bones together can be severed easily. The patella protects the knee joint from the impacts and blows that would otherwise affect the tendons and ligaments. While the patella is extremely hard and durable, it is not invulnerable. If the patella sustains a severe blow, it can get injured.

Horrible knee pain can be caused by a direct blow to the leg, or result from a degenerative condition that has culminated into a serious issue for you currently. If you have a ligament injury, arthritis, a meniscus tear, or some unknown cause of the pain, it is wise to consider supporting your knee.


How a Fractured Patella can cause Horrible Knee Pain

Even if the fractured patella is still intact and in a single piece, the cracks that it has received will weaken it significantly. Excessive movements will only cause further deterioration, accompanied by horrible knee pain as the slightest movement of the knee will cause the joint to rub against the patella. With a fractured patella, even the smallest movements are excruciating.

The Recovery Process

If you have a fractured patella, the road to recovery can be a long and hard one. Even with the proper medical care, you will find it almost impossible to walk for many months. When you do attempt to start walking again, you will more than likely experience horrible knee pain brought on by using muscles that have been weakened by several months of disuse. Supporting your patella with a knee brace can do a lot to help lessen the excruciating pain.

However, even when the patella has healed enough for you to walk, putting too much strain on the knee may cause it to fracture again. A knee brace will prevent this by taking much of the stress of walking away from the knee by helping to eliminate excessive movements.

Whether you have a fractured patella or another knee issue, a knee support can really prove to provide you with the support you need to get moving again with confidence. These supports do not have to be costly or big and bulky to provide you with additional and meaningful support.
