Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Injuries and chronic conditions can lead to knee pain for people of all ages. One of the most common causes of knee pain is osteoarthritis — a wear-and-tear disease that occurs when the cartilage around your knee joint wears away with overuse and as a result of getting older. 

As the cartilage wears away, there’s less shock absorption around your knee joint. This causes pain and inflammation and may make it difficult to walk up stairs without extreme discomfort. Other causes of knee pain include:

  • Knee bursitis 
  • A dislocated kneecap
  • A loose piece of cartilage or bone in your knee
  • Sports injuries
  • Torn meniscus
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
  • Tendinitis 

Gout and rheumatoid arthritis may also cause chronic knee pain, and being overweight adds stress on your knee joints, as well. 

When should I be concerned about knee pain and symptoms?

When knee pain symptoms begin to keep you from living your best life, or being as active as you’d like, it’s time to seek treatment. Dr. Keller, DC, evaluates your symptoms, your knee joint, and the surrounding muscles and ligaments so he can recommend an effective treatment plan. These are some of the symptoms you shouldn’t ignore:

  • Reduced range of motion or the inability to fully extend your knee 
  • Inability to put weight on your knee
  • Swelling and stiffness around the joint
  • Grinding or popping sounds and sensations when you walk
  • Severe knee pain that doesn’t get better after an injury
  • A deformity in the appearance of your knee

If you’re in an auto accident or suffer a traumatic injury, seek medical treatment for knee pain right away.
