The Knee Often Hurts When Climbing?
Hello, I want to ask. I am 23 years old now, my hobby is hiking. On my last climb, I felt my knee was like a hollow without bones and quickly tired. In fact, several times I fell because of knee such as can not sustain, this is also the number of times I experienced after the climb. Are these serious symptoms?
Hello Diah, Thank you for your question.
Have you ever consulted further with a doctor? To find out whether your condition is a mild condition or a serious one requires further examination by a doctor. If you don't check yourself, your doctor can't find the cause of your pain and no proper treatment can be given. Mountain climbing is one of the risk factors for knee injuries that can range from mild to severe. This knee injury can cause symptoms of knee pain, knee swelling, difficulty moving the knee, or sound when the knee is moved. Some causes of knee pain complaints for example:
patelofemoral pain syndrome iliotibial syndrome chondromalacia patella ligament tears lacerations of the meniscus tears Before symptoms get worse you should immediately consult an orthopedic specialist. Doctors need to ask about your complaints more fully, do a physical examination on your knee, and do other examinations such as X-rays, ultrasound, or MRI. From this examination, the cause of your knee pain can be identified and proper treatment can be given by a doctor. For a while, avoid mountain climbing or climbing stairs. You can apply cold compresses to a sore knee or take pain relievers such as paracetamol if the pain is sufficiently annoying.
I hope this helps.
