Knee Pain Q & A
What is knee pain?
Knee pain is a common complaint that can stem from a wide variety of sources. You may experience knee pain as the result of an injury, such as a torn ligament, or from medical conditions like arthritis.
Most cases of minor knee pain resolve on their own, but pain that leaves you unable to walk or causes obvious deformity in your knee requires expert care.
The team at Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management offers nonsurgical treatments for all types of knee pain so you can return to your favorite activities.
What causes knee pain?
Many people experience temporary knee pain after a fall or accident, but chronic knee pain usually requires treatment to get better. There are several possible causes of chronic knee pain, such as:
- Meniscus tears
- Torn ligaments
- Sprains and strains
Not all knee pain is serious, but certain conditions, such as arthritis, can become progressively worse without treatment. Additionally, knee injuries that don’t receive proper care may increase your risk of future knee problems.
How do you diagnose and treat knee pain?
First, your provider at Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management performs a physical exam and reviews your medical history. They may push, pull, or move your leg in different directions to check for pain.
In some cases, they may take an imaging test, such as an X-ray or MRI, to examine the bone and soft tissues of your knee.
Once they determine the source of your knee pain, your provider recommends the best treatment for your particular condition. Depending on your needs, treatment for knee pain may include:
- Physical therapy
- Steroid injections
- Joint lubricant injections
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
They may also recommend a genicular nerve block. This treatment involves injecting a local anesthetic that blocks the nerves that communicate pain signals from your knee.
With advanced techniques, the team at Advanced Spine Care and Pain Management helps to relieve your pain and avoid knee surgery. To learn more, call the offices in Staten Island and Hartsdale, New York, or book an appointment online.
