What is Knee Pain?

Knee pain is discomfort, aching, or stiffness affecting one or both knee joints due to injuries, overextended muscles, or torn ligaments. Knee pain may also indicate grave triggering health conditions like gout, arthritis, or other infections.

Some types of knee pain are highly responsive to old-fashioned treatment and traditional at-home treatments. For a case that persists beyond two weeks, one should seek immediate medical assistance to maintain mobility and productivity in and out of work.

As knee pain progresses, one may find it difficult to put weight on the knee or straighten the leg over extended durations.

The doctor evaluates your knees' structure and integrity by testing the range of motion, swellings, and bruising on the knees.
