Knee pain can happen to anyone at any life stage. From accidents to degenerative conditions, by its very nature, the knee is vulnerable to many forms of injury or disease.

People who drive for a living, or spend a significant amount of time driving, may develop certain back related issues. This can include taxi drivers, truck drivers, bus drivers, police, firemen, and other career related driving occupations. Some estimates show that those with jobs requiring long hours in a vehicle tend to suffer low back pain at four times the national average.
