What is the Best Way to Relieve Knee Pain?

Knee pain is very common and has many different causes. How serious your knee pain is depends on the underlying problem or cause. Your knee pain may be caused by:

  • Aging: Getting older can lead to degenerative changes in your knee joints and cause chronic pain. It may not be serious, but the severity of and frequency of the pain can impact your quality of life. 
  • Injury: Acute injuries like sprains, tears of ligaments or tendons can lead to knee pain and are caused by falls, accidents, sports injuries, or work injuries. 
  • Arthritis: Arthritis may be an underlying cause of your knee pain. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and other forms of arthritis can cause knee pain and inflamation. 
  • Meniscus Tears: Your meniscus is a C-shaped pad of cartilage in your knee that acts as a shock absorber when you walk and run. When your meniscus tears, it can cause painful grinding and swelling. Some meniscus tears may heal on their own, but over two-thirds of meniscus tears require medical intervention.
  • Over Use: Repetitive motion injuries and overuse from things like cycling, running, jumping and more can cause knee pain.

If you’ve experienced any direct injury to the knee or your knee pain is persisting, getting worse, and interfering with your daily routine and quality of life, seek the opinion of an experienced orthopeadic team to help you determine your best course of action.
