Knee Knee pain can be caused by many different things. These causes include: muscular injuries; ligamentous injuries; cartilage tears; bone problems; fractures; and arthritic changes. 

A common cause of knee pain is poor biomechanics, which are the body's movement patterns when completing daily activities, such as walking. Maintaining a healthy weight and keeping active can help in relieving symptoms.

Once your symptoms are controlled it's worth getting into the habit of doing them once or twice a day to reduce the risk of symptoms coming back.
