The knees play an extremely important role as they are in charge of the mobility, flexibility, and balance of the body, and they help us to jump, run, walk, and stand.
Yet, they can experience damage and lead to pain due to various reasons.
For instance, a strenuous exercise may lead to an over exertion on the joint of the knee or genetics as there may be a reduced amount of the fluid which lubricates the knee joints and prevents the bone from gnashing with bone. In this case, the thigh bone and the knee bone may touch and cause pain.
The pain may also be caused by bad footwear, as for example, high heels apply great pressure on the leg joints from the knees. In this way, the ankle and the Achilles ligaments are exposed to great strain.
