What Cause Of Grinding Knee Pain
Constant knee pain seems lateral. Collateral ligament is tight & painful and it is also causing the joint to grind. What could be causing this?
Knee Nightmare: Pain about the knee can be due to many reasons. Medial pain can occur due to ligament, meniscal or bursal injury. Similarly, lateral pain can occur for these reasons but less so for meniscal injury as it is a distinct structure apart from the collateral ligament. A common, but often overlooked, condition is iliotibial band syndrome that can cause pain anywhere from the hip to the lateral knee. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What can be done for knee pain I think is from the lateral collateral ligament associated with joint grinding?
Unlikely: The lateral (or fibular) collateral ligament does not typically cause pain. An injury to the fcl can cause instability in the knee.
