If you are getting older, then you might want to read about how to prevent knee pain. Since none of us are getting any younger, I guess everyone should read this; our knees are just getting older like the rest of our parts. Here are a few tips to help you avoid knee pain.

Knee pain along the front (anterior) part of the knee is common and can be caused by many different problems. In this article Dr. Wm.

Dr. Post makes it clear that an accurate diagnosis is the key to successful treatment. Anatomy and the specific causes of pain based on anatomy are reviewed in this article. Not all knee pain is caused by visible or measurable changes. On the other hand, changes can be measured on X-ray without pain or discomfort of any kind.

He does the same with surgical managem...
