  1. I actually like the question that is presented about knee pain. I have had knee issues since I was 8 years old and I am 28 right now. I was an athlete in high school and suffered severe pain constantly and it continued into my adulthood. I workout on a regular basis and have started training my legs more intensely. Is this something that could damage by knees further?

    • I think it really depends on a person’s cause of the pain. Even for osteoarthritis, though, we think that there is usually some benefit to the long-term health of the knee with moderate physical activity.
