Are there different types of knee pain?
There is long-term (chronic) knee pain, which is often associated with degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Sudden, short-term (acute) knee pain tends to occur if you have a torn ligament, or a dislocated or fractured bone.
