Knee Pain Q & A
What causes knee pain?
Your knees are large and complex joints that help you walk, climb, and bend. Unfortunately, the structure and function of your knees make these joints vulnerable to painful injury and disease.
There are many conditions that may lead to knee pain, including acute injuries following an auto accident or a chronic condition like osteoarthritis.
Common causes of knee pain include:
- Strains and sprains
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
- Torn meniscus
- Poor posture or body alignment
- Problems with your hips or feet
You may be at risk of developing knee pain if you have a history of knee injuries.
