Did you know the spine and nerves are infamous for referring pain elsewhere? If a portion of your lower back is irritated, you could possibly feel pain in your back, but you may also feel it in your thigh or knee.
It would seem that if you feel pain in your knee, it must be coming from inside the knee. This is not always the case. Knee pain can come from many different areas, including the spine, muscles, tendons, and nerves.
Common causes of chronic knee pain can vary from bulging discs in your back and irritated quadricep muscles, to knee arthritis and tendon tears, in addition to many other causes. Refer to this cool info-graphic from Regenexx for more information.
