The knee is a hinge joint especially named for its movement that is similar to the opening and closing of a door. The joint consists of three main bones. Where two bones meet, there are protective covering of cartilage. Meniscus is the additional pieces of cartilage which further supports the knee. All of these protective pieces of cartilage work to keep the bones in the knee from rubbing together. If this happens, it can be very painful and can cause knee injury and arthritis.

The following are some of the common knee injuries

If left untreated, Knee injuries can often results into arthritis. Here is the list of some most common knee injury and arthritis.
Meniscal Injuries Menisci can be torn when the knee is bent and twisted, such as turning to hit a tennis ball. Meniscal injuries that are not repaired increase the risk of developing osteoarthritis at some point.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries A sudden twisting motion or change in direction can lead to injury of the anterior cruciate ligament, whereas the posterior cruciate ligament is more likely to be damaged from direct collision, like being tackled in football. Medial cruciate ligament injuries are often the result of a direct blow to outside of the knee. The anterior cruciate ligament is the ligament most commonly injured.
Tendon Injuries which range from inflammation (tendinitis) to ruptures is usual knee injury and arthritis condition which can result if you overwork or over-stretch your tendon. Activities that injured tendons include running, jumping, dancing and squatting, especially to lift heavy items.
Loose bodies injury to the knee can sometimes cause a piece or pieces of bone or joint cartilage to break off into the joint space. These loose bodies might interfere with joint movement and cause pain.
Osgood-Schlatter disease is caused by repetitive stress on the upper area of the tibia (area where the bone is growing). In this condition, the patellar tendon (which connects the knee cap and tibia) becomes inflamed and may even tear away from the tibia. Its commonly affects preteen and young teenage boys.
Dislocated kneecap this may occurs when an injury causes the patella, or kneecap, to move out of position. The movement of the kneecap is always visible and intensely painful.
Bursitis Some knee injury and arthritis can lead to inflammation of the bursae which is a small fluid-filled sac that normally cushion the knee and reduce friction between the joint and surrounding tendons and ligaments. Injury to bursa can lead to warmth, pain, swelling, and stiffness.
