Knee ... assessment: Pain with bending knee for someone over weight can be an issue. At 23 y/o there is time for weight and lifestyle management . But because there could be structural damages underway it is a good idea to see the PCP for Knee Status Assessment so one can start appropriate treatment if indicated and preventive care.
