Knee Pain Relief Q & A

What Creates Knee Pain?
Almost 1/3 of all knee pain conditions occur from injuries. Slip and falls, sports traumas, accidents, or overextending while exercising are common causes for knee injuries. People may also have knee pain from arthritis, joint deformities, or from some type of repetitive trauma. Understanding the cause of the knee pain can help doctors provide the appropriate diagnosis and treatment to help relieve the pain.
What Symptoms Are Related to Knee Pain?
Most knee pain starts out gradually. The pain may be located at the back of the knee, sides of the joint, or at the front. A person may feel stabbing pains or aches when they walk, climb stairs, or perform certain motions with their legs. They may also hear popping, snapping, or crackling noises. If the knee locks in place or feels week, a person may start experiencing a lessening of knee function as they avoid doing favorite activities.
