What Patients Need to Know about the Knee Pain!

Knee Fractures

Knees are extremely important and widely exposed articulations we use for almost everything. Unfortunately, knees can become damaged easily, especially after direct knee trauma. When a person falls down on their knees, they can sustain damage to the ligaments and cartilage. As a result, these knee parts can no longer function correctly. They can also fracture the patella and other structures of the knee.

Knee fractures are more prevalent in patients with osteoporosis. They have weak bones susceptible to mechanical damage. A knee fracture may cause pain, swelling, and bruising. This type of injury may require a cast or immobilization, and they can be open or closed fractures, depending on whether or not the bone broke through the skin.
