Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Your knee is highly susceptible to injuries and degeneration because it carries the weight of your body while engaging in ongoing repetitive movement and enduring the stress of athletic activities.

You can develop knee pain from numerous causes, but some of the most common knee problems include:

  • Ligament, tendon, and muscle injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Kneecap dislocation
  • Meniscus tears
  • Tendinitis

Another common cause of knee pain, patellofemoral pain syndrome (runner’s knee), develops in the front of your knee and around the kneecap. It’s often caused by a kneecap that’s out of alignment.

How is knee pain treated?

Conservative treatments for knee pain depend on the underlying cause of the problem. Your doctor may recommend physical therapy, immobilization, or orthotic shoe inserts to stabilize your foot and ankle and take stress off your knee.

Although surgery is usually the last option, some knee conditions and injuries require surgery as the first line of treatment to fully restore knee function.

If you suffer from ongoing knee pain, call South Lake Pain Institute or book an appointment online to get the relief you need.
