Knee Pain

Symptom – Are you experiencing knee pain?

Knee pain is common in all age groups. In children, it may be due to growing pains, while in older adults it might be an early sign of arthritis. However, the location and intensity of the pain may vary based on your condition and the cause.

So what is causing your knee pain?

Knee pain can be caused by a number of things. It may be due to injury, overuse, or a condition such as arthritis. Either way, it can often limit your mobility. The knee may swell, become red, feel warm to the touch, and may feel stiff when you try to move. Swelling may limit the ability to fully extend or flex the knee joint, causing gait issues and more. Popping or crunching noises may also occur at the time of injury.

Common injuries of the knee include ACL tears, dislocation, torn meniscus, fractures, bursitis, and tendonitis. Osteoarthritis is also a common condition that causes pain in the knee – especially in older adults. If deformity or swelling does occur, it’s important to get your knee checked out as soon as possible.

What can you do to relieve your knee pain?
