Here, we'll discuss ten different knee injuries (from falls on concrete or other causes). Some injuries are minor; others are severe. But any of them can worsen if not cared for properly.
Several reasons could explain why your knee hurts when sitting. These include sitting too long or sitting in an awkward position. Poorly positioned furniture can also contribute. Finally, certain underlying conditions, like chondromalacia and arthritis, are associated with knee pain while sitting.
When you wear a knee brace, it should be snug enough that it doesn't move, wiggle, or slip down your leg. However, it shouldn't be too tight that you can no longer slip in two fingers under the brace's strap.
Improper use of or overreliance on a knee brace can cause the affected knee to weaken. Wearing a poor-fitting brace can also result in discomfort and stiffness. However, all these are preventable, so a knee brace shouldn't weaken the knee if worn the right way.
The vast majority of patients who opt for a total knee replacement find that their new joint functions well for 20 years or more. Meanwhile, most patients who undergo a partial knee replacement enjoy the benefits of a well-functioning joint for at least 10 years.
