Knee Pain Treatments

The knee joint, which is the largest in the body, acts as the junction to four leg bones – the femur, fibula, patella, and tibia. The knee is a complex joint that permits you to bend, flex, and even rotate your leg.  If you work or live in and around East Meadow NY, and are experiencing knee pain, Dr. Michael Brass and his team of professionals can help solve knee issues and the various related symptoms.

Potential Knee Pain Causes

The cause of knee pain varies but may include -

  • An Injury

Any injury may include a sprain or strain, or even a tear. Often the injuries are caused by a fall, an accident, or while playing sports.

  • Overuse

Overusing the knee joint can cause swelling and inflammation, which ultimately leads to pain. This often occurs from repetitive activities like jumping or running or prolonged standing in one place.

  • Arthritis

Arthritis is among the most common knee pain causes, especially for older individuals. The two types of arthritis that may impact the knee and cause pain include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Tendinitis

Tendons attach your leg muscles to the knee bones. If they become inflamed, the condition is known as tendonitis. It can cause both tenderness and pain.

  • Bursitis

The knee joint has protective fluid-filled sacs known as bursa. When these sacs, which reduce friction caused by moving body parts, are inflamed, you may experience swelling and pain.

  • Meniscus Tear

The meniscus, which is the knee's cartilage, can tear from excessive wear and tear or an injury. A meniscus tear can reduce your range of motion or cause swelling and pain.  

  • Patellofemoral Syndrome (PFS)

PFS is a condition that creates pain in and around the kneecap. The pain is often worse when you engage in activities that require you to bend your knee.

  • Gout

Gout, which is actually a type of arthritis, happens when uric acid crystals build up excessively in the knee joint, and this can and does cause severe and often unexpected knee pain.  

  • Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a type of medical condition in which the bones become brittle, weak, and vulnerable to breakage and fractures.
