Knee Pain Q & A

Primero Spine + Joint

What causes knee pain?

There are many causes of knee pain, including:

Injuries

The most common source of knee pain are injuries because they can damage the ligaments and tendons surrounding the knee. These injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • ACL
  • Fractures
  • Tendinitis

Joint problems

The following joint issues can lead to severe knee pain:

  • Dislocated kneecap
  • Improper walking due to hip or foot pain
  • Iliotibial syndrome
  • Broken cartilage or bone

Arthritis

Four types of arthritis cause mild to severe knee pain:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Septic arthritis
  • Gout

Keep in mind that a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight reduces the risks of joint problems and arthritis, effectively minimizing the chances of experiencing knee pain.

What are the symptoms of knee pain?

Since knee pain is typically associated with an injury or illness, it may elicit other complications on top of pain, such as:

  • Redness and tenderness
  • Weaknesses
  • Crunching or popping sounds
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Inability to straighten the knee

When should you see a doctor for knee pain?

You are the best judge as to how much pain and discomfort you can handle. But, even the slightest instance of knee pain warrants a visit to Primero Spine + Joint.

During your consultation with Dr. Busquets, he can determine the cause of your knee pain and develop a treatment plan to relieve it as soon as possible.

If your knee pain is severe, it is imperative you see Dr. Busquets for treatment so the pain does not spread to other areas of your body.

What are common knee procedures?

Common knee procedures typically involve some kind of surgical intervention, like partial, total or revision knee replacement. Dr. Busquets always opts for a noninvasive treatment alternative to avoid surgery.

Primero Spine + Joint offers viscosupplementation treatment, which involves a series of hyaluronic acid injections in the affected area. Hyaluronic acid typically heals burns and sores. Injecting it directly into the knee is noninvasive and can deliver immediate results with little to no recovery time.

Surgery can lead to multiple complications, including:

  • Prolonged and painful recovery
  • Allergic reactions
  • Damage to surrounding areas
  • Infections
  • Stiffness and limited range of motion
  • Scarring

Viscosupplementation treatment ensures that you never have to deal with these unwanted complications. That way, you can focus solely on your knee and not worry about any additional issues.

Don’t let knee pain take over your life. Seeking proper treatment significantly improves your well-being. Call Dr. Busquets as soon as possible, or book an appointment online.
