Knee pain has many causes, including:
Osteoarthritis is the most common culprit when it comes to chronic knee pain. It happens when the cartilage capping your knee bones erodes and leaves bone rubbing against bone.
Rheumatoid arthritis develops when your immune system attacks the lining of your knee joint, changing the bones in the joint.
Bursitis is inflammation of the little cushioning sacs near your knee joint. Arthritis and bursitis often happen simultaneously, and bursitis can also be caused by knee overuse or a direct blow to the knee.
Patellar tendinitis occurs when the tendon that links your kneecap and shin bone is overstretched, often due to repetitive movements during sports.
A meniscus is a wedge of cartilage in the knee. Meniscus tears are common sports injuries.
The ACL is the most-injured ligament in the knee. It crosses underneath your kneecap and is often torn during sports.
Chondromalacia patella is the breakdown of the cartilage that lines the underside of your kneecap (patella).
Other things cause knee pain as well, including infections.
