Bursitis is a common knee problem that will cause pain and stiffness. Bursitis is caused by inflammation of the Bursa in the knee. The bursa is a smooth tissue that is designed to keep the joint of the knee gliding smoothly. When this tissue becomes inflamed it will cause stiffness, pain, and a pocket of fluid to collect behind the knee. This condition is often caused by overuse of the knee or the knee is put under unusual pressure.
The knee is made up of muscles, ligaments, and a large joint. If the ligament in the knee is injured it can cause pain and lack of mobility. A ligament is a tough bank of tissue that binds the muscles to the bones and joints. Ligaments can be injured through an impact or through an accident.
Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons of the knees. This is often seen in athletes who may push their joints to extremes. It can also be seen in overweight individuals as well.
