Knee Pain

Overview

The knee is particularly susceptible to injury and age-related impairment — it’s the largest joint in the body, supports the weight of the body and absorbs the impact of walking and running. Squatting, kneeling or crossing the legs while sitting put even more pressure on the knee. Overuse and years of minor injury can result in persistent pain brought on by osteoarthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, loose cartilage in the joint, and direct injury to the bone or cartilage.

How Our Doctors Diagnose

In addition to a physical examination and thorough discussion of the pain you’re experiencing and your medical history, we have an array of tests and imaging to help diagnose the source of your pain: x-ray, MRI, CT scans, and bone scan. We may run a blood test for gout or remove a small amount of fluid from the joint (arthrocentesis) to check for infection.

Treatment Options

  • Knee injections
  • Pain medication
  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Physical therapy

Been going to Spine and Joint for the last few years and my experiences have been positive. Recently had a procedure done and the environment was relaxed, pleasant, and professional. This helps ease some of the stress and edginess that comes with most medical procedures. Thank you S&J.
