Knee pain is currently the most common reason for a doctor’s visit. This is not surprising due to today’s increasingly active society. The knee joint’s main function is to bend, straighten and bear the weight of the body. To be able to perform all of these actions and to support the entire body while doing so, the knee relies on a number of structures including ligaments, bones, tendons, and cartilage.
Typically, knee pain severity varies widely. While some people only feet a slight twitch, others might feel debilitating knee pain that interferes with their day-to-day activities. It is common for self-care measures to help with knee pain.
Knee pain that comes on slowly or as a result of the activity is more strenuous than usual, can be managed at home. Long-term knee pain from arthritis is often helped by weight loss and exercises to strengthen the joint muscles.
