I'm only 21 and I've started to notice some pretty significant discomfort in my knees :( A family member said something about the way women are built tends to make us more prone to knee problems (something about hip-knee alignment?). And I had a friend tell me it was something else to do with women's joints, particularly being a woman.
I'm not sure about all that, I know I did play soccer a lot and skied (downhill, lots of moguls and such) when I was in middle school/early high school which also happened to be around when I grew the most and then stopped growing.
I don't know how much that has to do with it, I guess this is mostly just a complaint about bad knees.
Anyone else have knee issues? Any helpful hints? Prevention from making it worse?
