Causes of Chronic Knee Pain
The knee joints contain bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and other tissues that are necessary for function. A wide variety of factors impact the knee joints, resulting in acute or chronic pain. While most injuries can be treated for a full recovery, disease, degenerative issues and other factors may result in ongoing or chronic knee pain. Some of the most common causes or factors that contribute to chronic knee pain include:
- Arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout
- Tendonitis or ligament damage
