Understanding Knee Pain

  • Sports Injuries: Tears of the meniscus or ligaments due to sports activities or accidents.
  • Overuse: Repetitive strain injuries from activities or professions that stress the knee joint.
  • Degenerative Conditions: Conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or chronic conditions that worsen over time.

Identifying the underlying cause of knee pain is essential for effective treatment planning.
