How Do I Know If I Have Knee Pain?

Knee pain can be painful and impact your daily life. To determine if you might be suffering from knee pain, start by understanding the causes of knee pain and the symptoms to be aware of. 

What Causes Knee Pain?

Knee pain can be caused by injuries, arthritis, overuse, inflammation, infections, or rare conditions like gout or bone tumors. Identifying the specific cause is crucial for effective treatment and relief. Other common causes include:

  • Wear-and-tear of joint cartilage
  • Strains, sprains, or tears of ligaments
  • Meniscus tears
  • Tendinitis

While these are common causes, it’s important to note that sometimes knee pain can occur without any apparent cause or injury. 

What Are the Symptoms of Knee Pain?

Knee pain is a common problem that can affect people of all ages and lifestyles. The symptoms of knee pain can vary but many individuals experience discomfort, tenderness, or swelling in the knee joint. Other common symptoms of knee pain can include:

  • Discomfort or aching sensations in or around the knee joint
  • Swelling and inflammation in the knee area
  • Stiffness, making it challenging to move the knee freely
  • Difficulty walking or bearing weight on the affected knee
  • Clicking or popping sounds when moving the knee
  • Limited range of motion, making it challenging to bend or straighten the knee fully

It’s important to note that not everyone with knee pain will experience all of these symptoms. If you think you might be suffering from a knee condition, fill out our online condition assessment tool below.

How is Knee Pain Treated?

Dealing with knee pain and finding the right treatment can be overwhelming. The best approach varies depending on the severity of symptoms, the specific location of the pain, and the individual’s overall health.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Knee Pain

At Integrated Pain Associates, we believe in exhausting all conservative treatments for knee pain before turning to minimally invasive options. Common non-surgical treatments for knee pain include:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Over-the-counter Pain Medication
  • RICE Therapy: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation
  • Low-Impact Exercise
  • Corticosteroid injections

Surgical Treatments for Knee Pain

If non-surgical approaches fail to offer enough relief for knee pain or if the condition is severe, minimally invasive surgery might be considered. Minimally invasive surgical options for knee pain can include:

  • Arthroscopy
  • Knee Osteotomy
  • Partial Knee Replacement
  • Meniscus Repair or Transplantation
  • Cartilage Restoration Procedures
  • Minimally Invasive Knee Surgery
