The knee is a very complicated joint, with many structures that can cause pain. Pain at the front is most often from the patella (kneecap). When the pain is below the patella the patella tendon or the infa-patellar fat pads can be involved, or it can be a sign of irritation in the local nerves. Pain on the inside or outside of the knee often indicates a ligament injury, and pain deep within the knee can be the joint itself, or a pinching of the menisci (cartilage) of the knee.
