A few thoughts: Joint infection, meniscus injury/tear, ligament injury, developing bursal cyst/bursities, tendon injury/inflammation, overuse, kneeling, foot dysfunction, etc. etc. A proper history and physical, incl. osteopathic exam may find the cause.Other tests may help.Treatment may include prolotherapy, manipulaiton, medications, surgery, etc.
