Knee pain  common and osteoarthritis is one of the most common causes of knee pain in the adult population.  The knee is particularly affected with wear and tear or osteoarthritis as it is a fully weight-bearing lower limb joint.  Exercise is part of knee management after an operation, after an injection after an injury and of course sports injury related injuries  Helen has attended several continual professional conferences on knee pain and over the years medical research has altered so that now knee arthroscopic surgery has been considered to be less successful that exercise therapy.  The research is no longer encouraging corticosteriodal injections and the other injection therapies such as PRP lasts only a few weeks and it expensive.  It is  rehabilitation and exercises which keep the knee pain at a level of 2 out of 10 explains expert Claire Robertson in our lecture here in Edinburgh  Helen now will use a small video clip on Hurdle so you can see how your knee bends and straightens as you walk, or maybe try to hop and a mini squat.  This helps you see how your knee can look quite uncomfortable as you climb up and go down stairs
