Groin and knee pain can happen to just about anybody.
The knee is one of the most commonly injured joints in the body. In the image above, the physician is pointing to the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL , one of these important ligaments. Inside the knee joint is a smooth cover on the ends of the bone called articular cartilage. Between the articular cartilage layer, is a shock absorbing cushion called meniscus cartilage. When people talk about knee cartilage, they may be talking about either the meniscus cartilage or the articular cartilage.
When people experience pain in their lower abdomen, where the leg meets the pelvis, they often refer to this as groin pain. Depending on the underlying cause, groin pain can be mild or severe, come on gradually or suddenly, and vary in quality dull, sharp, throbbing, or even burning. In the end, your treatment plan may range from something as simple as rest and ice to something more involved, like physical therapy, or invasive, like surgery.
