Knee pain

It’s probably no surprise that I see a lot of people complaining about knee pain. There are tons of reasons for a knee to hurt.  A meniscus tear or ACL tear from an injury, pain from arthritis, pain from overuse, or just a general ache that seems to come on for no reason at all. One of the most common knee conditions is known as anterior knee pain, or runner’s knee, though it happens in non-runners too. In some cases there can be cartilage damage, called chondromalacia.  Check out my website for a pdf on runner’s knee for some more detailed information and a couple of exercises you can do to start on the road to recovery.
