Causes of Pain in the Knees

Knee pain frequently occurs due to a sports injury. You may take a hit to the knee or damage the tissues in the joint when you make certain movements. Pivoting, sidestepping, and suddenly stopping or changing direction while running can cause ligament damage.

Overuse injuries also cause knee pain. This type of injury develops over time as you frequently repeat the same movement.

ROC often treats painful knee conditions such as:

  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Meniscal injuries
  • Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
  • Patellofemoral problems (runner’s knee)
  • Prepatellar bursitis
  • Unstable kneecap
  • Osgood-Schlatter disease

The Osgood-Schlatter disease commonly causes knee pain in adolescents, especially when their bones, muscles, and other soft tissues go through growth spurts.

Common Treatments

Your provider at ROC completes a physical exam and may need to take X-rays or other diagnostic images to diagnose the cause of your pain accurately.

If you have a ruptured ligament or a complex fracture, you may need to have surgery right away. Otherwise, your treatment begins with conservative therapies, such as:

  • Rest
  • Ice and heat
  • Temporary immobilization
  • Bracing and splinting
  • Activity modification
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Hyaluronic acid injections
  • Steroid injections
  • PRP injections
  • Physical therapy

When advanced arthritis causes knee pain, you may need a knee replacement to restore the joint and eliminate the pain. Whenever possible, ROC performs knee surgery, including joint replacement, using minimally invasive surgery called arthroscopy.
