Knee pain is typically caused by an issue with either the femur, patella, fibula, and tibia or the ligaments and meniscus in the area as well. There is no specific age or gender that is most impacted by knee pain; this condition can impact people of all different types of backgrounds and lifestyles at any time.

General knee pain is usually identified by troubles walking, pain when moving up and downhill, swelling, redness at the source of injury, and difficulty extending and bending the leg as well. This condition can be brought on by arthritis, various infectious diseases, injury, sports-related accident, tendinitis and torn meniscus as well. How do we treat general knee pain?
