Knee Pain Treatment

Knee pain has a wide variety of specific causes and treatments. Knee pain may occur as a result of an injury (e.x. ruptured ligament), or, as a result of a medical condition, such as arthritis, tendinitis and so on.

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee is an active weight-bearing joint. Causes of knee pain include injury, degeneration, arthritis, infection. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of knee pain so that appropriate treatment can be applied. Arthritis is among the most common causes of knee pain. A dislocating kneecap causes acute symptoms during the dislocation, but can also lead to chronic knee pain.
