Common Causes of Knee Pain

Proper diagnosis of a knee pain condition is paramount to receiving the right bracing, best treatment, and lasting relief. Sometimes this is a difficult task because there are numerous causes of knee pain.

Injuries

Injuries are a common source of acute pain and account for the most swelling in and around the joint. Typical injuries would include sprains, strains, and tears of the soft tissue structures that support and stabilize the knee joint. Injuries cause sudden pain and immediate loss of function - depending on the severity.

Misalignments of the knee joint can cause pain behind the knee, under the kneecap, inside or outside of the knee, and can be a cause of arthritis. Pain from knee misalignments can make bending, walking, and even sleeping at night very difficult.

Osteoarthritis

One of the most common causes of knee pain, swelling, and difficulty bending the knees is degenerative arthritis. Previous injuries to the knee that resulted in scar tissue are often a causative factor in eventual joint deterioration. Scar tissue inside the knee or under the kneecap prevents the joint from receiving the appropriate nutrition – which leaves the joint unbalanced and contributes to uneven wear and tear. Deterioration of the knee joint can cause pain anywhere in or around the knee joint.

Many patients with degenerative knees in Roanoke, Virginia have pain when walking (especially on unlevel surfaces), going up or down stairs, moving from a seated to standing position, and can even experience symptoms while sleeping. Unfortunately, treatment for arthritic knees is limited to medications, cortisone injections, and braces that only offer temporary relief at best. Unfortunately, these treatment therapies also contribute to worsening of the degenerative changes until the joints are bone on bone and require replacement surgery.

Neuritis

Another common cause of knee pain is neuritis – which is an irritated or “pinched” nerve in the spine. When the nerve is inflamed, this can result in pain anywhere that nerve supplies – including the knee. Neuritis pain affecting the knee joint can be confusing as it commonly mimics similar symptoms as arthritis or knee injury, but typically does not experience the swelling that is common with an injury.

When patients suffer with a Neuritis diagnosis, the knee pain often goes undiagnosed as testing of the knee is not clear. Often these patients receive care addressing just the knee and not the spine, which prevents the patient from receiving the relief desired as the problem is not being properly addressed.

Beware of Invasive Procedures

Most traditional medical treatments in Roanoke, Virginia for knee pain may only provide temporary relief at best. Sadly, many of these treatments can leave the joint in a weakened state for the future. Whether the knee pain symptoms are from a new injury or chronic arthritis, most recommended treatment focuses on controlling the pain, swelling, and inflammation. The most common recommendations include medication, physical therapy, sleeves, and/or braces

When these treatments do not provide enough relief of the symptoms, often Cortisone injections are recommended. These steroid injections can sometimes help with the symptoms of knee pain by addressing the inflammation, but this option often provides inconsistent results AND side effects – including acceleration of degenerative damage.

There are times when surgery is necessary to repair torn ligaments, torn tendons, or fractures. However, all conservative paths should be considered first to avoid unnecessary side-effects and the best possible long-term outcomes. There are currently no treatments offered by traditional medicine that allow the joint to regenerate or improve osteoarthritis to avoid joint replacement surgery.

Exciting New Options for Knee Pain Sufferers with Regenerative Medicine

Patients in Roanoke, Virginia who are suffering with knee pain from arthritis have new treatment options if they want more than just the temporary relief offered by steroid injections and many surgeries. The best answer is found in regenerative medicine treatments and non-invasive therapies found at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine. We offer human cellular allograft injections and state of the art physical therapy for the treatment of arthritis and knee injuries. This therapy is minimally invasive, has no side effects, requires no down time, and only temporary braces.
For acute injuries, regenerative medicine works great to rapidly reduce inflammation and help the body repair any soft tissue tears or damage. For chronic arthritis and even bone-on-bone degeneration in the knees, regenerative medicine is one of the most effective ways to improve joint space.

Many patients suffering with knee pain have been able to find relief during the day and at night and begin walking, bending, climbing stairs, and even running with less or no pain after regenerative medicine treatment.
