The knee is a common place for pain to occur. Knee pain can occur at any age, from a number of causes. Patients of all ages and activity level can relate to knee pain. The knee can be injured from a sports related injury, chronic conditions like arthritis, or from problems while growing in childhood and adolescence.
Knee pain can be frustrating for patients because treatment can be difficult depending on the cause. Occasionally, pain in the knee can be from the low back, causing radiating pain. Age and activity level will help to determine the common causes of the knee problems and the appropriate treatment.
