- Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis is a common disease that affects the cartilage in the knee joint. It often causes knee pain, reduced mobility, and swelling.
- Tendonitis: This is a painful condition that occurs when a tendon becomes inflamed. It is one of the most common conditions and it can be chronic or acute.
