Understanding Knee Pain (What causes it and how to eliminate it)
Dr. Penrose outlines the causes of knee pain, the anatomy of the knee, and the different mechanical factors that affect knee pain. Knee pain is affected by your foot type and your lower leg alignment as well as your hip strength. The way you walk or run also plays a role in your knee pain. You need to have the entire leg looked at to fully address the knee pain so you can get rid of the knee pain and continue to be as active as possible.

She went from disabled and unable to drive to back to full function at the age of 79.
