Knee Pain

The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. It connects the thigh bone (femur) to the shin bone (tibia).

Knee Pain

The smaller bone that runs alongside the tibia (fibula) and the kneecap (patella) are the other bones that make up the knee joint. Knee pain can be a result of injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. Medical conditions like arthritis, gout, and infections also can cause knee pain.

Symptoms of Knee Pain

Knee pain may vary depending on the cause. Common symptoms include swelling and stiffness, redness and warmth to the touch, weakness or instability, popping or crunching noises, and inability to fully straighten the knee.
If knee pain is not addressed quickly, it can cause functional and mechanical problems in the hips, low back, ankles, and more. Additionally, the longer knee pain persists, the less likely it is to be corrected with non-surgical options.
