About Knee Joint Pain Relief

Chronic Joint PainHealthy knees are essential for normal activities in life, and they’ll let you know when something isn’t right! The knee joint is complex. There are four bones connected at the knee, along with muscles, tendons, ligaments, and menisci. Considering the stress and strain they are subject to, it’s not surprising that the knee can malfunction and cause pain.

The femur (thigh bone), tibia (shin bone), and fibula (the second bone in your shin, tucked in behind the tibia), and the patella (knee cap), which protects the joint, are connected to the muscles of your upper and lower legs by tendons. Ligaments connect the bones to keep them aligned and to limit motion. The two menisci (cartilage pads) buffer the joint, and there are several bursae (sacs of fluid) that keep everything moving smoothly.

Common Causes of Chronic Knee Pain

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, and it most often occurs in the knee joint. The knee takes a lot of wear and tear over the years through bending, straightening, lifting, twisting, and so on. If the cartilage breaks down, the knee can become painful and stiff.

Tears in the menisci and ligaments can cause the joint to work differently, which can lead to further knee pain, which in turn can lead to compensation in other parts of the body.

Overuse conditions, like tendonitis and bursitis (inflammation of the tendons and bursae, respectively), are painful, however, they usually are self-limiting and will resolve with rest. If stiffness and pain worsen over time, they should not be ignored. If symptoms persist for more than a few weeks evaluation is advisable.

Athletes can experience injuries by not warming the joint up before engaging in activity. Athletes should always warm up their joints before playing or participating in activities like running, cycling, swimming, and skiing. Failure to warm up the joint can increase the likelihood of traumatic injuries. Injury to the knee can progress into chronic knee pain, stiffness, and weakness that can rob athletes of the joy of their sport.

Knee pain can also result in compensation that creates other problems. For example, you might limp to relieve pressure on your injured knee. The limp can in turn put pressure on other parts of your body like the hip, back, foot, or the other knee. As the saying goes: “A stitch in time saves nine.” Getting treatment sooner than later can save time, pain, and money.

If an injury or repetitive stress goes unchecked, degeneration can accelerate; cartilage wears away, bone spurs form, mobility and flexibility are lost, and pain advances. If not addressed in time, degeneration can get so bad that surgical replacement of the joint is the only option.

Thankfully, great strides have been made in conservative treatment procedures. With these advancements we have helped thousands of patients find relief for their chronic knee pain and regain their ability to participate in life.
