In brief: Knee Pain

Knee pain is a very common problem, especially among young female patients.
It's important to know what kind of pain you're experiencing so that the are can be localized. More than likely it's tendonitis or chondromalacia patella. Make a list of activities that are causing you problems and try to avoid doing things that bother your knee. Heat in the & ice can also be useful to manage your pain.
