Knee Pain when Kneeling

08/06/2008

Question:

Recently, about a month ago I noticed severe pain when kneeling on my left knee. I don`t remember any trauma to the knee. The pain is so intense when kneeling that I sometimes am unable to support myself. Do you have any ideas?

Answer:

You need to see your doctor and get examined. There may be a problem with the patella (knee cap) or the quadriceps ligament. In addition, there may be other causes of pain.
