DON’T LIVE WITH KNEE PAIN ANOTHER DAY
CONSULT YOUR PHYSICAL THERAPIST
TENDONITIS Symptoms: Tendonitis can cause pain around the patella and tibia from repetitive motion or acute injury. Treatment: In some cases, pain relievers will be necessary, but rest is often the best way to treat tendonitis. SPRAINS OR TEARS Symptoms: A sprain is much different than a tear, but both are acute injuries that involve an immense amount of pain. When ligaments become compromised, they will also affect stability.
Knee pain can originate from a variety of sources, each of which is characterized by different symptoms. Here are the four most common causes of knee pain and how you can overcome them. ARTHRITIS Symptoms: Reduced range of motion and significant pain may indicate arthritis, a degeneration of the joint. Treatment: Stretching, massage, or range of motion exercises can help increase the overall functionality of the knee joint. INFLAMMATION Symptoms: Inflammation is not always visible. While it is common to see an inflamed joint with the naked eye, it is also characterized by heat and pain. Treatment: Controlling your diet is one of the best ways to fight inflammation. Ice and compression will also help with inflammation caused by acute injuries.
Treatment: Serious tears will often require surgery.
The one common treatment not mentioned in all of these causes of knee pain is physical therapy. More often than not, the best route you can take for all of these is by consulting a PT. If you struggle with knee issues, reach out to us today.
