Abstract

Knee pain is present in up to 20% of the adult general population and can be significantly debilitating to patients. A thorough history and physical examination can help localize the source of inflammation or injury to further determine if imaging, physical therapy, specialty referral, or surgery is necessary. By following a systematic approach to evaluating knee pain, primary care physicians can make the correct diagnosis and formulate an appropriate therapeutic strategy for patients.
