Knee pain in children can be a result of many factors. Most commonly it is a result of overuse in active teenagers, but can also be caused by a specific trauma or condition.
It is quite common for children to complain of knee pain without having sustained any type of trauma or injury, especially active adolescents. A change in activity level or sport may be related to the onset of symptoms, usually the onset of knee pain will occur after a considerable delay.
