Knee Pain Q&A

Why do I have knee pain?

Knee pain is common and occurs from many causes. Your knee is a large and complex weight-bearing joint that helps you stand, walk, run, and climb. The daily stress your knees endure makes them vulnerable to injuries and diseases that cause pain.

Common causes of knee pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
  • Meniscal tear
  • Tendonitis
  • Dislocation
  • Sprain or strain

The type of pain you feel may depend on the cause. You may have sudden, severe pain following an acute injury like an ACL tear or dull, achy pain that worsens over time with conditions like arthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a common cause of knee pain that occurs from the gradual wearing away of the cartilage that separates the bones that make up the joint. 

I don’t want knee surgery. What can help my knee pain?

The team at the Center for Spine, Joint, and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation offers many nonsurgical treatments for knee pain. 

The pain specialists use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) as one of the primary treatments for knee pain, seeing excellent results in patients with knee sprains and partially torn ligaments. 

The team may recommend physical therapy if hip issues, gait problems, or misalignments are the source of your knee pain. They also use oral medications for pain and swelling, as well as joint fluid replacement therapy, nerve blocks, and injections.

When performing interventional pain management procedures for knee pain, they use ultrasound-guided imaging to ensure treatment accuracy.

What can I expect during a knee pain consultation?

You can expect a patient-centered evaluation when you visit the Center for Spine, Joint, and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation for a knee pain consultation. The goal of the consultation is to find the source of your knee pain so the team can create an effective plan.

They ask detailed questions about your symptoms and how it affects your quality of life. They review your medical history and perform a physical exam. The team may also conduct diagnostic testing to confirm or rule out the cause of your knee pain, such as X-rays, CT scans, or ultrasound imaging.
