The cause of severe knee pain is often a specific condition or injury.

Injury or Diagnosis

Causes of knee pain are diverse.

Pain often occurs due to injuries during physical activity, and sometimes underlying conditions such as:

  • Gonarthrosis or knee arthritis
  • Fluid in the knee
  • Gout
  • Bursitis
  • Jumper's knee
  • Meniscus issues

Athletes often have to give up physical activity because severe knee pain significantly hinders movement and sports engagement.

However, you don't have to give up sports activities because of pain.

Whether the cause of your problem is an injury or a chronic condition, PhysioNova has a solution.

Don't delay seeing a doctor and return to sports activities as soon as possible.
