Your knees serve a critical role in your mobility: Serving a shock absorbing function and allowing you to sit, crouch, walk, and run. Your knees are particularly vulnerable to injury or wear and tear because they're responsible for several daily tasks.
Knee pain's most common causes include:
Several risk factors can increase your chances of experiencing knee pain:
Fortunately, there are also ways to reduce your risk level, even though there’s always a chance of injury or degenerative damage.
No two people will experience knee pain in the same way, which is why a customized treatment plan is so important. Professional athletes need different treatment options from what someone with degenerative arthritis needs, for example.
Dr. Newsome works with you to devise a plan of action that takes your specific injury, fitness level, and lifestyle into consideration. After a thorough physical examination and any necessary imaging or other screening options, Dr. Newsome can help you decide on treatment.
Relieving pain is imperative, and interventional injections can provide effective pain relief. Some work to relieve pain on a temporary basis while you pursue long-term treatment options, while others offer lasting results.
Physical therapy is another way to address knee pain. During sessions, you’ll learn stretching and strengthening techniques that can provide the right level of support to your knee joint and prevent further injury. Therapies like heat-ice, ultrasound, and TENS are also part of physical therapy.
If you are living with severe or chronic knee pain, make today the day you call I-SPINE and begin a path toward restored and pain-free knee function.
