Knee and leg pain overview
Knee and leg pain are common in the community and amongst athletes or those who participate in sport. Knee and leg pain can result from muscle, ligament, tendon and bone injuries.
Repetitive stress injuries are caused when a movement, motion or activity is performed too much too allow for adequate recovery and adaptation. This can include anything from playing soccer, running or cycling. Acute injuries are caused by large forces that the knee and leg tissues cannot absorb and tolerate. This results in tissue injury.
