Knee pain in one or both knees is a common problem that can occur at any age.

Being overweight, overusing your knee from sports – for example, or having a family history of arthritis are some of the most common causes of this pain. In general, knee pain starts as a light pain that can get worse over time.

The webpage MedlinePlus mentions a few injuries related to knee pain:

  •  Bursitis is inflammation from repeated pressure on the knee, such as kneeling for extended periods of time, overuse, or injury.
  • A fractured kneecap or other bones.
  • Iliotibial band syndrome is an injury to the thick band that goes from your hip to the outside of your knee.
  • Pain in the front of your knee around the kneecap.
  • A torn ligament may cause bleeding in your knee, swelling, or an unstable knee.
  • Torn cartilage (a meniscus tear) is a pain felt on the inside or outside of the knee joint.
  •   Strains and sprains are minor injuries of the ligaments caused by sudden or unnatural twisting.
