Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

The knee is the largest and strongest joint in your body, made up of bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Damage to any of these structures can cause knee pain. 

The expert team at Pain Solutions evaluates and treats many injuries and conditions that cause knee pain, such as:

  • Arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sprained or torn ligaments, including the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
  • Damaged cartilage, including a torn meniscus
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Knee bursitis
  • Patellar tendinitis
  • Iliotibial band syndrome

Sometimes, knee pain is due to a problem in another joint, such as the hip or foot. If any type of joint pain changes the way you walk or stand, it causes a misalignment that may lead to pain in your knees. 


What tests and procedures diagnose knee pain?

Because knee pain has so many causes, it’s important to get an accurate diagnosis from the team at Pain Solutions. They thoroughly review your medical history and examine your knee, checking for signs of injury or illness like redness and swelling. 

They may also take diagnostic tests, such as an X-ray, computerized tomography (CT) scan, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. These tests help your pain management physician locate the specific source of your knee pain so they can initiate the most effective course of treatment. 


What are the treatment options for knee pain?

The team at Pain Solutions knows that no two patients are alike. That’s why they offer a variety of treatment options for knee pain, including traditional, interventional, and alternative approaches. 

Depending on the specific cause of your knee pain, treatment may include:

  • Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE)
  • Physical therapy
  • Medication management
  • Joint injections
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage therapy
  • Lifestyle changes like healthy weight loss
  • Nutritional counseling

The team at Pain Solutions specializes in state-of-the-art therapies, including regenerative medicine techniques like stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). These treatments use healing factors found in your own body to stimulate the formation of healthy new cells. 

Knee pain is not a normal part of life. If you experience knee pain that doesn’t go away on its own or is severe enough to limit your daily activities, call Pain Solutions or book an appointment online today.
