What causes knee pain?

There are lots of possible causes for knee pain and factors that can contribute to it. It may be that your knee pain is caused by something like:

• A knee fracture
• A torn meniscus
• Bursitis
• Tendonitis
• Gout
• Osteoarthritis of the knee
• Rheumatoid arthritis of the knee
• A torn ACL or MCL
• Knee cap dislocation
• A related issue

It could be that your pain is complicated by a previous knee injury, your weight, a lack of strength/flexibility, or playing certain sports. At Northshore Orthopedics, a part of your treatment will be determining the cause of your knee pain and addressing the cause, not just the pain.

How is knee pain diagnosed?

When you come to see us here at our clinic, Dr. Charles A. Soma will review your symptoms and medical history to help us understand your pain and its cause. Dr. Charles A. Soma will also examine your knees and may require a test to assist with the diagnosis, like a blood test, an X-ray, an MRI, a CT scan, or an ultrasound. Once Dr. Charles A. Soma understands what’s causing your pain, they can proceed with recommending treatment. The treatment or treatments recommended to you will address the underlying cause of your pain and likely help to improve mobility in the problem area.

What are the treatments for knee pain?

The provider you see may recommend one or more treatments. The treatments we offer include:

Physical therapy – Exercises to help stretch and strengthen the knees and surrounding tissues; this can also help stimulate healing and prevent future injury
PRP injections – Platelet-rich plasma injections that use platelets from your blood to stimulate the body’s healing
Knee bracing – A custom knee brace that provides extra support and stability as a knee injury heals
Surgery – Depends on your unique situation.

One or more of the treatments above will likely help with your knee pain. We’ll help you take your next step when you come to see us for a consultation here at NorthShore Orthopedics!
