How does one say "He has a bad knee" in French?

ie, a chronically bad knee, as opposed to one that it is in pain right now?

This relates to:
Avoir mal (à) = To be in pain, to hurt somewhere -

Hi Ian,


You would probably say : "J'ai un problème ( chronique) de genou" ( I have a knee condition /problem) rather than "j'ai mal au genou".


Hope this helps!
