Knee Pain and Injury

The knee is one of the most easily injured joints in the body, even though it is a simple joint allowing only bending and straightening of the knee. During everyday movements, such as walking or running, the knee has to withstand large amounts of strain. Damage to structures that support and stabilise the knee, such as surrounding muscles or ligaments, can leave the joint feeling weak or unstable. Sporting injuries and general wear and tear can lead to knee pain, it could also be referred pain from somewhere else such as your hips or ankles!
