In brief: Knee pain

Cycling & swimming are activities that allow knee motion without stress of full body weight, & frequent knee motion often reduces knee pain associated with arthritis or thinning cartilage.
Pain that worsens during activity, or knee pain associated with clicking, significant swelling, locking or giving out should be evaluated by a musculoskeletal expert. See how you tolerate an easy ride 1st.
