What Causes Knee Pain?
Knee pain can commonly by caused by a disease affecting the joints, such as arthritis or osteoarthritis. Because the knee is one of the biggest joints in the body and one that is used every day, it can be susceptible to wear and tear injuries.
In addition, knees can also become damaged due to an accident or sports injuries, such as an ACL injury or other muscle strain or sprain. Hyper-extension of the knee can also lead to knee pain. With sports injuries in particular, knee pain can continue to reoccur without the proper treatment.
Knee pain can also be caused by dislocated or fractured bones.
