The knee is the largest and most complex joint and is therefore very vulnerable to injury. The complexity of the knee joint makes it susceptible to acute injuries caused by running, jumping and general sports activities. Knee injuries may often occur from overuse or repetitive overload and this can lead to a wide range of knee symptoms and conditions.

Knee Symptoms

Common symptoms of Knee problems include:

  • Knee pain
  • Knee swelling
  • Knee locking
  • Knee stiffness
  • Giving way

The most common Knee problems are:

  • Osteoarthrosis (arthritis)
