Knee pain includes:
Knee arthritis (osteoarthritis)
Kneecap pain (chondromalacia)
Focus on practice and play with short irons while recuperating from a knee injury (or surgery), to minimize stress on the knees.
For a very in-depth examination of knee pain, see the Knee Pain section on About.com's Orthopedics site.
