Knee pain can be quite debilitating, as it is one of the most used and complicated joints of the human body. The stability of the knee is due to four ligaments, muscles and the actual joint structure. During the course of a normal day, the knee goes through a whole range of motions, from sitting, walking, twisting and more.
Because of the dependence on our knees, there can be damage to the muscle, cartilage or the joint itself. Sometimes, the pain can be alleviated with the use of anti-inflammatory ointments or tablets. However, more severe cases need Health attention for a more effective treatment.

- Inflammation of the joint
- Tenderness around the area
