Feature: Knee Pain
One of the most common problems patients present with is knee pain. In young people, pain is usually the result of an injury.
Minor sprains usually resolve within a few weeks. If there is major swelling, a significant ligament injury and/or meniscal tear may be present. A menicscal tear may be present without a history of injury as well. This can cause catching, locking and/or giving way. This may require surgery if medical treatment is not successful.
