Knee Pain

Pain in the knee is typically caused by one of three things: a sudden injury, injury due to overuse, or an underlying conditions such as arthritis. Treatments depend largely on identifying the source of the pain, and acting quickly to treat the cause. Our team uses a science-driven, holistic approach to pain relief, which works well for knee pain, as it is often connected to conditions elsewhere in the body. This is known as referred pain.

SYMPTOMS

Common symptoms of knee injury can include pain, swelling, and stiffness. Sometimes, a knee injury can break off fragments from the bone or cartilage. These pieces, known as bone ships. can get stuck in the joint, causing it to freeze up. This can lead to swelling of the knee in addition to mobility problems and pain. Bursitis is a conditions with symptoms much like arthritis, but is actually caused by the swelling of the bursa sac at the back of the knee.

Other common conditions include osteoarthritis and tendonitis. As with all pain, the key things to be aware of are the severity and timing of pain. In addition, if you notice any activities or trigger for your pain, these can be very helpful in identifying the cause of pain. Knee pain and discomfort can really make life difficult, so if you think you may be experiencing some of these symptoms, please contact our team.
