While many injuries and conditions can lead to knee problems, some of the most common knee pain causes include:
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory condition that can cause painful swelling of the joints, including the knees.
Osteoarthritis causes both inflammation and degeneration of the joints that often leads to knee pain.
Bursitis is an inflammatory condition that develops from overuse.
A meniscus tear occurs when you rupture the cartilage in your knee. This can happen during high-performance sports like running, soccer, and basketball.
Gout is a form of arthritis caused by a buildup of uric acid in the knee.
A torn ligament can occur during exercise, sports, or from twisting your knee when standing.
Tendinitis is any type of irritation or inflammation of the tendons in your knee.
Knee pain is the most common symptom of most knee injuries. Some other common symptoms include:
More often than not, knee injuries are caused by poor form or overuse during physical activity, so it’s important to rest and ice your knee if you begin experiencing any pain after exercise.
Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness offers several knee pain treatment options at their two locations, including:
Physical therapy uses a combination of massages, exercises, stretches, and more to relieve knee pain and help improve mobility. During osteopathic manipulative therapy, the team applies pressure to various points on and around your knee to alleviate pain.
Regular acupuncture treatments can help relieve chronic knee pain caused by degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into predetermined points around your body. This can help restore the balance of energy to relieve pain.
Anesthetics or corticosteroids can be injected directly into the knee joint to help relieve pain. These injections provide lasting relief that many patients feel right after their appointment.
During viscosupplementation injections, the team injects a hyaluronic acid gel directly into your knee to reduce pain and inflammation. This naturally occurring bodily substance acts as a lubricant in the knee to help your joints move more smoothly.
Integrative treatments help relieve knee pain without addictive opioid medications or invasive surgery. To learn more, call Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness or book an appointment online.
