Knee pain? You’re not alone!

Per the most recent analysis, frequent knee pain affects approximately 25% of adults. It limits function and mobility which impairs quality of life. Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of knee pain in people 50 years or older.

Knee pain is not limited to older adults. While knee pain becomes more common with age, anyone can experience knee pain.

Knee pain in children can be influenced by factors such as growth, physical activity, and sports participation.

Preschool Age (3-5 years)

Knee pain in very young children is less common. However, it can still occur due to minor injuries, falls, or underlying medical conditions.

School-Age Children (6-12 years)

Knee pain becomes more prevalent in school-age children, especially as they become more physically active. Common causes of knee pain in this group can include overuse injuries or growth-related pain.

Adolescents (13-18 years)

Knee pain is relatively common in adolescents, particularly those involved in sports and physical activities. Growth spurts and intense sports participation can contribute to conditions like Osgood-Schlatter disease, patellofemoral pain syndrome, and ligament injuries.

Although knee pain affects all ages and has many causes, Bridging® quickly provides lasting relief for most causes.
