Knee Pain Q & A
What causes knee pain?
You can develop knee pain from an injury, overuse, or an underlying disease. Common causes of knee pain include:
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
- Meniscal tears
- Loose body (a piece of cartilage or bone floating in the joint space)
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome (pain between the kneecap and thighbone)
You may also develop knee pain if you have problems with your ankles or hips. The knee is a large weight-bearing joint, and problems with other weight-bearing joints may place extra stress on the knees, causing pain.
