Knee pain is a common condition associated with people over 50, but can also be present in those under 50 who live an active lifestyle and experience foot, ankle, lower back, or hip pain.


Knee pain starts as acute pain and may be sporadic or constant, but over time, especially with normal wear and tear, can quickly become painful and make it difficult to walk. For this reason, seeking medical care at the start of your pain can greatly reduce your chances of needing surgery. To adequately diagnose the condition and identify the root cause of the knee pain, diagnostic studies such as x-rays, MRI, or CT-scan may be required and examined.

Common causes of knee pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Lyme Disease
  • General wear and tear
  • Overuse or excessive exercise
  • Restricted range of motion
  • Excess body weight
  • Poor standing posture
  • Sports Injuries
