Knee Pain: What Causes It, How to Treat It and When to See a Doctor

A Lifespan Blog by Julie Valois, MPT, DPT, C-PS

Knee pain is a common problem that many people experience. According to a report, knee pain affects approximately 25 percent of adults, and accounts for nearly four million primary care visits annually. Knee pain can be inside or around the knee. The joint is made up of four bones—femur, tibia, fibula, and patella—and four compartments—medial and lateral tibiofemoral, patellofemoral, and the superior tibiofibular joint. Knee pain limits the ability to move and function and ultimately can impair one's quality of life.
