Sakit Di Lutut / Nyeri Sendi Lutut

The bones and cartilage of the knee are often the main areas affected when a patient experiences knee pain. The muscles and ligaments can also sometimes be involved. Knee pain can affect younger people who suffer injuries due to sports as well as older patients who have degenerative “wear and tear” of the knee.

It can affect a person’s ability to walk, work, socialize, take part in sporting activities, and be very distressing.

Fortunately there are many ways to treat knee pain very effectively.

 Sakit Di Lutut / Nyeri Sendi Lutut

Apakah yang menyebabkan nyeri lutut?

Lutut merupakan struktur komplek dan menyediakan berbagai variasi gerakan. Lutut terdiri dari tiga tulang dasar yaitu femur (tulang paha), tibia (tulang tungkai), dan patella (tempurung lutut). Di sekitar tulang-tulang tersebut terdapat jaringan otot dan ligament yang memberikan kekuatan besar, membuat sendi lutut menjadi salah satu sendi terkuat di tubuh manusia. Di lutut juga terdapat beberapa lapisan lemak, sementara saraf dan pembuluh darah utama juga melewatinya.

Tulang dan tulang rawan lutut seringkali menjadi daerah utama yang terkena dampak saat pasien mengalami nyeri lutut. Otot dan ligamen lutut kadang juga bisa terlibat.

Beberapa penyebab nyeri lutut diantaranya:

  • Degenerasi tulang rawan dan sendi
  • Terjatuh dan insiden
  • Patah tulang
  • Dislokasi tempurung lutut
  • Nyeri otot
  • Ligament yang robek
  • Tulang rawan yang robek
  • Bursitis atau radang kandung lendir (peradangan jaringan lunak akibat terlalu sering digunakan berdiri lama dan cedera akibat berdiri lama)
  • Cedera jaringan lunak akibat kecelakaan
  • Infeksi
  • Arthritis (rheumatoid, osteoarthritis, encok)
  • Gangguan pendarahan (hemofilia)
