What Is Miner’s Beat Knee & What Are The Symptoms?

Miner’s beat knee is a condition closely linked to bursitis (an inflammation of a bursa). A bursa is a fluid filled sac under the skin. These are located around the joints and between tendons. Bursitis can be the result of repetitive movement of a particular area. 

Miner’s beat knee is a specific kind of bursitis and is caused by working in tight spaces where movement is restricted. Miner’s bodies are being put under pressure by continuously working in enclosed areas and the nature of this job makes the condition common in the coal mining industry.

Symptoms can include:

  • Pain around the knee area
  • A stiffness when bending
  • A noticeable reduction in mobility
  • Swelling around the joints

Miner’s beat knee can change your entire life. You may find yourself unable to work and provide for yourself or your loved ones. Compensation can significantly ease the financial burden and relieve some of the stress and anxiety while you recover.
