Knee pain can be caused by physical activity or injuries such as falls or collisions during contact sports. Symptoms may appear slowly and worsen over time or may appear rapidly after an injury, and may involve swelling around the knee cap or the back of the knee. Knee pain may also be caused by the soft tissue above, below, or surrounding the joint.

Imaging tests such as x-rays, ultrasounds, and MRIs can be useful in identifying more serious causes of knee pain and determining treatment options. However, they have limitations as they do not show muscle tension or pain.

It is important to receive a thorough assessment from a registered health professional to understand the cause of your knee pain and work with them to develop a treatment and management plan. By understanding the cause of the symptoms and working with a health practitioner, you can achieve better management and recovery. Decreased physical activity due to knee pain can lead to muscle atrophy and reconditioning, so it is important to address the pain and work towards improving physical activity and function.
