  Case 1 .   OA Knee Joint 

A 60-year-old woman presents complaining of bilateral knee pain on most days of the past few months. The pain was gradual in onset. The pain is over the anterior aspect of the knee and gets worse with walking and going up and down stairs. She complains of stiffness in the morning that lasts for a few minutes and a buckling sensation at times in the right knee. On examination, there is a small effusion, diffuse crepitus, and limited flexion of both knees. Joint tenderness is more prominent over the medial joint line bilaterally. She has a steady but slow gait, slightly favouring the right side.

 Case 2  Jumpers’ knee
The patient’s main complaints were: long-standing constant dull pain in the left knee worse since a year, tends to limp at times due to pain, difficulty in coming down the stairs, tendency for the knee to give way and occasional disturbed sleep. On Visual Analogue Scales the perceived pain was 2 - 3/10, a score of 10 being worse. Past History revealed that the patient had been experiencing constant dull pain in the knee for the past 9 years. On observation the patient stands with gross hyper extension of the knees. A minimum to moderate degree of swelling in the left knee, laxity of collateral and anterior cruciate ligaments, and gross wasting and weakness of the left Quadriceps muscles were present. On deep palpation there was marked tenderness at the apex of patella and patellar tendon and moderate degree of tenderness at the patellar tendon bursae were present. An ultrasound scan revealed active infra-pateller tendonosis of moderate severity with moderate hyperaemia within a thickened infra-patellar tendon (8 mm).

  Case 3 Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS)
A 20 year-old female presented herself with chronic pain of the patellofemoral joint when going up or down stairs and while sitting with the knee flexed, particularly when keeping the knee flexed for a long time (e.g. the length of a movie). She felt the pain like a tight bandage around the patella, with the feeling of having ‘something too much’ in her knee joint. Catching and locking occurred under the same conditions. She reported her first symptoms during adolescence. The pain could be relieved by extension after some minutes.
