Knee Pain: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatments

Problems in the Knee

The knee doesn’t have much protection from trauma or stress (pressure or force). In addition to wear and tear on the knee, sports injuries are the source of many knee problems.

Symptoms

Knee symptoms come in many varieties. Pain can be dull, sharp, constant or off-and-on. Pain can also be mild to agonizing. The range of motion in the knee can be too much or too little. You may hear grinding or popping, the muscles may feel weak or the knee can lock. Some knee problems only need rest and ice, others need physical therapy (knee rehab exercises) or even surgery.
