The knee is the largest — and most complex — joint in the body. It functions as a stabilizer, a shock absorber, and helps to keep us mobile. As a result, it is susceptible to a number of symptoms, including pain, tightness, inflammation, and more. The Mayo Clinic reports knee pain as being one of the most common pain complaints affecting people of all ages. While knee pain is often the result of sports-related injuries, it is also a common symptom of overuse, repetition, infection, aging, obesity, and even something as simple as wearing the wrong shoes.
