Did you know, there are many causes of knee pain?
For example, the knee is a weight-bearing joint that can be commonly afflicted with osteoarthritis. Arthritis may affect any and all of the three compartments of the knee joint.
Knee ligament injuries such as ACL, MCL and PCL tears may also cause pain and knee joint dysfunction. Meniscal injuries are also common and maybe due to trauma or gradual degeneration.
Prepatellar bursitis is another cause of knee pain. It is found more commonly in patients that kneel a lot.
Treatments for conditions that cause knee pain can include pain medications, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, knee steroid injections, visco-supplementation (hyaluronic acid) injections, regenerative medicine treatments, bracing and surgery.
