What is the outlook (prognosis) for knee pain?

The outlook for an individual with knee pain depends on the particular cause of the pain. For examples, knee pain caused by degenerative cartilage can be chronic, while knee pain from injury sometimes resolves completely with appropriate treatment.

Comment from: 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: July 25

I have been having serious pain in both of my knees for the last 2 weeks or so and it happens when I go to sit or get up. It's the worst when I am bending down to pick something up and when I exercise. I am going to get a hold of my doctor and hopefully it is not arthritis. I am only 30 and I am too young for that.

Comment from: Tennis, Male (Patient) Published: March 18

I believe I had my knee pain from playing tennis a few months back. The pain is on my left inner knee. Usually, I ice my left knee to reduce the pain every time I exercise and feel pain. I feel the pain in my knee when the weather gets cold. I've had knee pain for more than 1 month now. I am planning to see a specialist to see if I need to have surgery.
