Those at risk of knee pain

Knee Pain Prevention

Knee pain is a common issue due to the complexity of the knee joint. Daily activities can strain the knees and lead to pain, affecting quality of life and limiting physical abilities. While aging and osteoarthritis often contribute to joint pain, people of all ages can experience knee pain. Anterior knee pain, felt around and under the kneecap, can be caused by weak or tight muscles, as well as muscle imbalance. Inflamed tendons can also be a source of knee pain (1).
