Knee Pain/Arthritis Q & A
What causes knee pain?
Knee pain occurs for a variety of reasons, one of the most common being overuse. This can occur as a result of playing sports, working a physically demanding job, or participating in hobbies like hiking that require repetitive knee movement.
Knee pain can also occur as a result of degenerative issues, including ACL tears, fractures, knee bursitis, osteoarthritis, and patellar tendonitis.
Knee pain that’s caused by injury or degeneration won’t go away on its own. If you regularly experience symptoms such as swelling, stiffness, instability, or a reduced range of motion, make an appointment at Sound Integrated Medical Center as soon as possible. The team will work with you to develop a custom care plan that eases pain and restores your knee to full mobility.
What are the risk factors for chronic knee pain?
There are many factors that contribute to your risk of developing chronic knee pain. Your family medical history is a good indicator of whether or not you’ll have knee problems. If a parent or grandparent has knee trouble, it’s likely you will, too.
Another common indicator of knee pain is knee injuries early in life. Many people who injure their knees playing sports in high school or college develop arthritis in their knees.
Additionally, the wear and tear of getting older and being overweight or obese increase your risk of knee pain.
What are nonsurgical treatments for knee pain?
The team at Sound Integrated Medical Center evaluates your overall health and wellness to identify factors contributing to your knee pain. Once they have an understanding of the underlying cause, they create a customized treatment plan to reduce your pain and promote healing. Whenever possible, they use regenerative medicine techniques to ease chronic knee pain and provide an alternative to knee replacement surgery.
One of the most popular nonsurgical treatments for knee pain is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP involves your Sound Integrated Medical Center provider injecting a platelet-rich solution of blood into your injured knee. Once the PRP solution enters your body, it eases inflammation and encourages your body’s natural healing process.
