Knee Pain

Common among both athletes and the general population, knee injuries can be a great source of discomfort. Generally, there are two forms of knee injury – acute and gradual onset. Acute knee injuries often occur during activities where twisting, kicking and changing direction are involved in the exercise, causing damage to the ligaments (ACL, MCL or PCL) and cartilage/meniscus of the knee. Gradual onset knee pain refers to patients participating in a repetitive movement, or older patients with degenerative wear and tear.
