Understanding and addressing the root causes of knee pain is essential for effective relief.

Knee pain may indicate that the demands placed on your knee (load) have surpassed its ability to handle those demands (capacity), resulting in discomfort.

However, this discomfort could stem from lifestyle factors such as an unhealthy diet, abdominal weight gain, a sedentary lifestyle, inadequate sleep, and high stress levels, which can all increase sensitivity in the joint and exacerbate knee pain (Caneiro, 2022).
