Made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid, the knee joint has numerous structures that can cause pain, some more so than others. Knee pain is often caused by either a one-time injury or repetitive motions that stress the knee over time, particularly as we age.

If you've experienced knee pain, you know the impact it can have on your quality of life. Climbing stairs, getting in and out of the car, and playing sports can all become quite challenging.

The knee is the joint where the bones of the upper leg meet the bones of the lower leg. The knee allows a hinge-like movement while providing stability and strength to support your body weight. Strength, flexibility and stability are necessary for standing and for activities such as running, jumping and turning. Problems regarding the strength, flexibility and stability of the knee can occur at any age.
