When you think about knee pain, probably the first thought is that there must be something wrong with your knee joint. Or maybe some kind of inflammation that makes your knee hurts. If that is the case, then you might think that the only way to get rid of the pain is the steroid injections, or in the worst case scenario surgery. The most important thing to keep in mind is that what hurts isn’t always the issue, but a symptom of the issue.
