What’s Causing Your Knee Pain?

Those experiencing pain in or around the knee may be suffering from a condition impacting either the knee joint itself or the soft tissue around the knee. Either way, pain in the knees can often result in challenged mobility, excess swelling and varying levels of discomfort in both mobile and immobile scenarios. 

Some of the more common issues associated with knee pain are:
  •  Sprain: this involves stretching or tearing of the fibrous tissue the leg bones to the knee. Resulting in pain and swelling.
  • Sprain: this involves stretching or tearing of the fibrous tissue the leg bones to the knee. Resulting in pain and swelling.
  • ACL injury: a torn ligament in the knee that can often cause pain, instability and swelling.
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome: damaged cartilage under the knee cap that can cause stiffness, pain or gait abnormality.
  • Osteoarthritis: flexible tissue at the end of the knee bones that wears down due to overuse or injury resulting in knee pain, joint stiffness and even low back pain.
  • Bursitis: resulting in inflammation of the fluid-filled bursae pads that cushion your knee joints and resulting in knee pain, joint pain and discomfort with movement.

Treatment varies depending on the nature of the diagnosis. Prescription and non-prescription medications can be used to reduce swelling and manage pain while some physical therapy modalities may be employed to strengthen the surrounding muscles and better support the joint. 

 

Depending on your symptoms, a moderate activity regiment may also be recommended to help manage inflammation and increase mobility, as well as bracing the impacted knee. Acupuncture is also often used to manage symptoms and support the healing process.
