Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Extensive movement in your knee joint, combined with the stress of carrying your body weight, makes the joint vulnerable to injuries. Most injuries are caused by athletic activities, falls, and repetitive movements.

Our team treats knee pain caused by many conditions, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Ligament tears
  • Meniscus tears
  • Joint dislocations
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Bone infections
  • Knee fractures

No matter what’s causing your knee pain, your provider focuses on easing your pain while providing treatments that promote healing.

What are the symptoms of knee pain?

The injuries and conditions responsible for knee pain usually cause other symptoms. You can also have:

  • Swelling
  • Inflammation
  • Bruising
  • Stiffness
  • Clicking or popping noises in the joint
  • Limited joint movement
  • Instability (feeling like your knee could give out)
  • Locked knee joint
  • Knee unable to bear weight

If you suffer from knee pain but aren’t sure why, schedule an evaluation at Integrity Spine & Orthopedics right away. Some injuries cause ongoing joint damage or instability if they’re not treated promptly.

How is knee pain diagnosed?

Our team uses a thorough exam and diagnostic imaging to accurately diagnose the cause of your knee pain. X-rays, an MRI, or a CT scan can rule out a fracture, see arthritic changes, and identify damage to the ligaments.

How is knee pain treated?

Your treatment begins with conservative therapies, then proceeds to include interventional or regenerative medicine when needed. Our team could recommend any of the following:

  • Resting your knee
  • Immobilizing your knee (using a brace)
  • Taking anti-inflammatory medication
  • Undergoing physical therapy
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Hyaluronic acid injections
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
  • Genicular nerve block
  • Radiofrequency ablation

If your pain continues despite these treatments, you might need to consider surgery. Some injuries, like ligament ruptures and meniscus tears, also require surgery.

A torn ligament might not regain its former strength unless our team performs reconstruction surgery. Advanced arthritis also requires surgery. After your knee joint suffers too much damage, replacing the joint is the only way to relieve your pain.

Knee pain that doesn’t improve in a few days demands prompt treatment. Schedule an appointment by calling our office or booking one online today.
