What Causes Knee Pain or Issues?
A knee injury can often occur when the knee is in use, whether a person is working, playing a sport, or using the knee in another active way. However, knee issues can also develop over time when a person isn’t even aware. The most common conditions are attributed to the simple wear and tear over the years that occur when your knees are used in daily life. These simple activities include bending down to pick up an item, walking up the stairs, or exercising. Diseases, such as arthritis, can also bring about pain as you get older. Because the knee is a weight-bearing joint, it means it not only undergoes stress due to use but also undergoes strain from the weight put on it. If a persons own body weight is taken into consideration and that person is obese, the knee joints will undergo more stress than a person who is of average weight. Therefore, an obese person is at a higher risk for knee pain or having knee issues as time goes on.
