Newly diagnosed knee pain is something that affects up to nearly 2 million Americans per year, and the average weekend warrior is certainly not spared from this condition.
Knee pain can be related to acute traumatic events, such as a twisting injury that results in a ruptured ligament, or chronic overuse wear-and-tear injury patterns, such as arthritis. These injuries can often occur for a variety of reasons, including lack of conditioning, improper warmup, lack of endurance, and sometimes plain bad luck. This phenomenon is no longer isolated to the baby boomer population. Physicians are seeing more men and women in their 20s, 30s and 40s than ever before with ankle, elbow, knee and shoulder injuries.
