Knee pain can be the result of ‘new use’ (a new activity you are not conditioned for), ‘overuse’(doing more of your regular activity than you are conditioned for – like going from doing a 5km, jog to a 15 km jog too quickly), or ‘abuse’ (doing an activity in an inappropriate way – like playing tennis in the wrong shoes or even in your Ugg boots). Trauma – such as a twist or tackle in sport is another way that knee joints and structures can become strained, inflamed or injured.
