While there are several options for treating knee pain, the best options are those which break the cycle of inflammation that can cause further pain sensitivity, and to address any postural or structural weaknesses which created or maintain the knee pain.

The main pain relief choices that knee pain sufferers have are NSAIDs, Cortisone or Steroid Injections, Glucosamine/Chondroitin, MSM. The problem is that while each of these works on some element of the knee pain, no one choice resolves all the issues of knee pain.

Knee pain is the most common musculoskeletal complaint that brings people to see the doctor.

Knee pain has a wide variety of specific causes and treatments.

Most of the time, knee pain is the result of a sudden injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. Knee pain can be caused by overuse, which happens to runners a lot- their knees are constantly overstressed by the motion of running on hard surfaces.
