Knee pain

What is knee pain?

Knee pain is very common, and we know that it can negatively impact a person’s ability to carry out normal activities such as walking, managing stairs, sleep, physical activity and work. This can, in turn, hugely impact physical and emotional well-being.

The good news is that the underlying cause of knee pain is rarely serious and in most cases, it is very treatable by you, at home. This website provides information, advice and resources from Sheffield clinicians to help you do this.
