Knee pain may occur for several different reasons, including injuries, mechanical problems, and arthritis. Some of the most common knee injuries that cause pain include:
Mechanical problems that may lead to knee pain include a loose body in the knee, dislocation of the kneecap, and iliotibial band syndrome.
In addition to pain, patients with a problem in the knee may also notice weakness, instability, stiffness, swelling, popping noises, redness, and warmth in the joint.
The specific cause of a patient’s knee pain will influence the treatments Innovative Medical Center recommends. To provide patients with the best treatment possible, the doctors at Innovative Medical Center always identify the cause of the patient’s pain before developing a treatment option. To identify the cause of a patient’s knee pain, the doctor will perform a thorough physical examination, and he/she may also order an X-ray of the knee.
Innovative Medical Center offers several different types of treatment to patients with knee pain. Each of these treatments serves a different purpose. Some of the treatments that may be recommended for patients with knee pain include:
Not every patient will be a good candidate for conservative knee pain treatment. In some cases, the cause of the patient’s knee pain may be a condition that won’t heal on its own, such as a severe injury to a tendon or ligament. In such cases, the patient may need surgery. However, most patients will benefit from the conservative treatments available at Innovative Medical Center.
