Knee Pain

Knee injuries are a common problem

In the majority of cases, knee pain is caused by a sudden injury during sports, an accident or through overuse.

The symptoms of knee pain include swelling, locking, clicking, stiffness, grating, pain while walking or sitting or the feeling that it might give way.
