What is it and how is it treated?
What is Knee Pain?
Knee pain is the second most common type of chronic pain in the United States. It may be the result of an injury, such as a ligament or cartilage tear, or from a medical condition such as arthritis. Symptoms that are sometimes associated with knee pain include:
- Stiffness and swelling
- Weakness and instability
- Popping or grinding
- Difficulty fully straightening the knee
Knee pain can be minor and respond well to self-care such as RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation).
When the pain does not subside and persists for more than a few days, or when the knee is difficult to move or swollen, it is important to consult one of the Board Certified Orthopedic Knee Specialists at OrthoNeuro to find the underlying cause of the pain.
Knee pain can be the result of underlying conditions, including:
- Meniscus tears
- Knee ligament tears (ACL, MCL, PCL)
- Patella tendonitis
- Patella tendon tear
- Patella dislocation or fracture
- Knee sprain
