Tennis Player with Knee Arthritis
A late 30 year old tennis player with chronic knee pain, was diagnosed as having knee arthritis. Degenerative knee arthritis is not just seen in the elderly. It can occur much earlier in life as the result of chronic overuse, repetitive stress and injuries of sports.
Tennis and Knee Pain
Tennis is a very physical sport, with professional tennis players engaging in marathon matches lasting over 5 hours. The constant force placed on the knees of athletes that start in their teenage years, can result in knee arthritis in their 30’s, or even sooner if multiple knee surgeries have occurred.
