Knee pain is a debilitating symptom associated with knee injuries. While some knee injuries are cut and dry, others are not. Knee pain may derive from damage to the soft tissue or connective tissue of the knee joint, as well as from one or more of the nerves that reside within the knee. While these types of injuries are quite common, they are also somewhat challenging to diagnose.
It is important that a full physical and pathology exam are conducted, and a thorough diagnostic work-up completed so that the right diagnosis can be made and an accurate treatment plan prescribed.
