Knee Pain

Knee Pain and Physical Therapy

Knee PainAlthough knee pain is a treatable problem, many people are still suffering from it across the globe. Basically, your knee consists of 3 parts; the upper part, lower part, and the kneecap. To hold these 3 parts together are strong tendons, cartilages, and ligaments that ensure your knee is stabilized.

Any damage or illness that affects these parts leads to knee pain. You don’t have to go through surgery as various hospitals suggest in a bid to curb your pain.
