What are the causes of knee pain?

There a number of conditions that can cause knee pain. The following are the most common causes:


  • – Osteoarthritis: This is a common cause of knee pain, especially in older adults. Osteoarthritis can also affect younger people, those who are overweight, or individuals with past knee injuries. It occurs when the cartilage in the knee joint gradually deteriorates, leading to pain and swelling.
  • – Meniscus or Cartilage Damage: The meniscus is the cushioning pad in your knee joint. It can be damaged due to high levels of force or wear and tear over time.
  • – Anterior Knee Pain Syndrome: Pain felt at the front of the knee, often due to irritation of the cartilage under the kneecap. This can result from abnormal biomechanics, poor flexibility, muscle weakness, or arthritis.
  • – Strain/Sprain: This happens due to increased activity or overstretching of the ligaments, tendons, or muscles.
  • – Alignment/Structural Issues with the Foot and Ankle: Conditions such as flat feet, hypermobile ankle joints, and arthritis in the foot/ankle can lead to an abnormal gait, causing knee pain.
