Knee Pain Q & A
When should I see a doctor for knee pain?
Many men and women try to live with knee pain, but there’s really no reason to do so. If you have persistent knee pain, don’t have full range of motion, experience serious physical changes in your knee, or can’t bear weight on your knee comfortably, it’s time to get help.
It’s important to remember that knee pain isn’t normal. It’s not part of aging, and you don’t have to live with knee pain as you recover from an injury, either. The providers at Dynamic Injury Solutions LLC can diagnose your knee pain and eliminate your discomfort, allowing you to heal efficiently and effectively.
What causes knee pain?
There are a number of reasons for knee pain, including:
Knee injury can occur in any of the ligaments, bones, tendons, cartilage, or other tissues that make up your knees. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, fractures, and meniscus tears are some common knee injuries.
Arthritis, especially osteoarthritis, is the most common cause of knee pain. It causes cartilage breakdown that leads to painful bone-on-bone contact in your knee joint. You can also develop other types of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis, septic arthritis, and gout in your knee joint.
Mechanical issues change the way your knee moves, which leads to pain. Some common examples of mechanical issues include knee dislocation, bone spurs, and loose cartilage.
Knee pain can happen suddenly, as with a fall or sports injury, or can take years to develop, as with most types of arthritis.
