Common Causes of Knee Pain

Knee pain is commonly caused by one of three things, as explained by Johns Hopkins Medicine.

  • Aging. One of the most common causes of knee pain is the result of a condition related to aging. As people age, wear and stress on the knee, when compounded with health conditions such as arthritis, can lead to severe discomfort, pain, or/and disability. Osteoarthritis is a common source of pain related to aging and refers to a condition where the cartilage in the joint gradually wears away; the risk of osteoarthritis is exacerbated by excess stress on the joint, which could be a result of repeated injury/stress or being overweight. 
  • Acute injury. Another common cause of knee pain is acute injury. Acute injuries that may lead to knee pain include sprains and strains, torn ligaments, and torn cartilage – all of which could occur in a car accident, sports accident, workplace accident, slip and fall, or another accident type. 
  • Repeated stress. Even if a person does not experience an acute injury, they could repeatedly stress the knee, resulting in tendonitis – which is the inflammation of the tendons that can result from overuse. Tendonitis is often very painful and can cause pain for years if not properly addressed.

Treating Knee Pain

If you are suffering from knee pain, the very first thing that our doctor will do is compile your full medical history and do the correct assessments to determine the precise cause of your knee pain – a critical consideration when pursuing treatment. We may use x-rays, MRIs, CT/CAT scans, and other technologies and strategies, including a physical assessment, to make a correct determination.

Once we understand the cause of your knee pain, we’ll develop a customized treatment plan that’s personalized to you. Treatment options might include recommended lifestyle and behavior changes, physical therapy, the use of over-the-counter or/and prescription medications, and surgery in serious cases. We believe in taking a holistic approach to pain management rather than focusing on your knee alone.
