About Knee Pain
Being active is one of the best things you can do for your joints and the rest of your body. But injuries can happen, and they often involve the knees. Knee pain is a very common musculoskeletal complaint. The number of knee problems is increasing as society becomes increasingly active. Knee pain has a wide variety of specific causes and treatments. Some of the most common problems are sprained ligaments, meniscus tears, tendinitis, and osteoarthritis. If you have an old knee injury that wasn’t properly treated, it may flare up now and then or hurt all the time.
The knee joint’s main function is to bend, straighten, and bear the weight of the body, along with the ankles and hips. The knee is more than a simple hinged joint, however. It also twists and rotates. In order to perform all of these actions and to support the entire body while doing so, the knee relies on a number of structures including bones, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage.
