Have you seen a doctor? Seriously, why would you trust strangers to diagnose you via the Internet? That could be quite dangerous.

The only person who can safely answer your question is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examinat...
Knee pain from arthritis is often the reason for having a knee joint replacement called total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The TKA reduces pain but at a price. The quadriceps muscle along the front of the thigh straightens the knee. Control of this muscle is reduced after TKA. This problem can persist a year or more after surgery. Poor muscle performance has been linked with increased risk of falling, reduced walking speed, and difficulty getting up out of a chair. Many studies have shown that a loss of knee extension is common after TKA. This study goes beyond that and looks at the cause for the decrease in muscle force after TKA. Rehab suggestions are offered. The key problem is failure of voluntary activation. This means that the patient is trying hard to straighten the knee, but the muscle isn't contracting fully. Pain, swelling, and joint damage may be part of the cause. However, simply reducing knee pain doesn't improve muscle contraction. This study shows the importance of special musc...
Knee pain is the most common problem facing people who run more than 10 miles per week. Most of these problems happen in the anterior (front) part of the knee, around and under the kneecap. Each year, up to 65% of all distance runners will have to stop running or seek medical care due to anterior knee pain. Since there are about 32 million regular distance runners in North America, that translates to roughly 21 million people. Knowing which runners are at risk for knee pain is the first step toward prevention. To help with this, the authors recruited runners at local races and in running magazines. Two groups were formed. Seventy non-injured runners were selected for the control group, and 99 injured runners were selected for the injury group. All the runners completed detailed questionnaires about their running experience, training routines, running terrain, shoes, and injury history. Researchers used medical and video technology to measure each runner's legs, feet, strength, stride, ...
