occurrence of knee pain in a patient who is physically active is often
an unpleasant incident. The emergence of painful symptoms may be
related to joint strain, to minor traumatic incident or may be
installed insidiously, without being connected to a specific event.
Very commonly, the patient will present himself promptly at the
doctor’s office for a consultation, given the age and the
physical activity that he used to perform before the onset of pain.
This paper aims to study the causes and incidence of knee pain in young
people who have physical activity. We also tried to straighten if, in
our study group, pain had a functional or anatomical character.
