Knee pain is a common yet painful condition that affects men and women of all ages, although people over the age of 50 are especially vulnerable to this kind of joint pain. The knee is the largest joint in the body and consists of cartilage, ligaments, tendons, muscles and bone. This complexity leaves it susceptible to strain and injury from a variety of causes such as ACL tears, torn meniscus injuries, repetitive wear and tear, and even degenerative conditions such as arthritis. Symptoms of knee pain include swelling, redness, stiffness, popping sounds and inability to walk or straighten the leg.
