As the largest joint in the body, your knee absorbs significant stress throughout the day. Knee pain symptoms can vary, but some common manifestations are swelling, stiffness, weakness, popping, grinding, and an inability to walk without pain.
There are a wide variety of conditions that result in knee pain. Some common causes of knee pain are trauma from a serious accident (such as a torn meniscus or an ACL tear), repetitive stress, or arthritis. Athletes, people who perform physical labor such as working in a warehouse or carrying out heavy lifting, and older adults are at increased risk for developing knee pain.
Obese individuals are also at risk due to the added weight putting stress on your bones and joints, including your knees. This is why exercise is often recommended by doctors in conjunction with knee pain treatment.
Knee pain commonly involves more than just the structures inside the joint. It may include the tendons or ligaments outside of the joint. In order to have complete relief of pain, all of the sources of pain must be treated. If you are tired of living with knee pain after trying other forms of therapy you may be a candidate for one of our minimally invasive treatments.
