Anterior knee pain
Anterior knee pain (AKP) is pain in the front of your knee which is very common - it's the second most common musculoskeletal condition after lower back pain. AKP affects an estimated 25 per cent of the population at some point in their lives.
It is usually not related to any significant injury. The pain is usually caused by overusing the joint and repeatedly placing strain on the knee by carrying out repetitive activities such as kneeling, squatting and walking up stairs.
