Knee Pain Q & A

by Dr. Lawrence Clayman

What are common causes of knee pain?

Knee problems generally occur during sports activities, work-related tasks, or as the result of years of wear and tear. As with any other joint in your body, overuse of the knee joint can lead to chronic pain. Arthritis and sports injuries are among the most common causes of knee pain that doesn’t go away on its own.

Knee injuries may affect the surrounding ligaments, tendons, and fluid around your knee joint. You can also hurt the bones and cartilage surrounding your knee. Some of the most common types of knee injuries include:

  • Bursitis: injured sacs of fluid (bursae) around your knee joint
  • Tendinitis: irritated and inflamed tendons surrounding the kneecap
  • ACL injuries: torn anterior cruciate ligament
  • Fractures: broken bones caused by a fall or impact
  • Torn meniscus: torn cartilage (meniscus) around the knee due to sudden twisting motion

Additionally, osteoarthritis is the most common type of degenerative arthritis that often affects the cartilage in your knee as you age, causing painful symptoms.

What are the symptoms of knee pain?

Knee pain symptoms usually include any of the following:

  • Loss of mobility around the knee joint
  • Difficulty standing and walking
  • Difficulty going up and down stairs
  • Redness and swelling around your knee
  • Limping or a change in gait because of pain
  • Locking of the knee joint
  • A constant ache in your knee
  • Dull, burning pain that doesn’t go away
  • Sharp, shooting pains when you try to put weight on your knee

How is knee pain treated?

Dr. Clayman treats your knee pain as naturally as possible, depending on the cause. It’s possible to heal many types of knee pain without surgery, however, the longer you ignore your symptoms, the less chance you have of avoiding more invasive procedures to repair your knee. Dr. Clayman conducts a complete physical exam of your knees, legs, and spine to evaluate the causes and problems associated with your knee pain so he can prescribe the most effective treatment plan.

Physical therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture, along with regular chiropractic adjustments to keep your spine aligned, are effective methods Dr. Clayman may utilize to relieve your chronic knee pain.
