Knee Pain

When should I seek help for knee pain?

Although knee pain may resolve naturally within a day or two, in some cases, there are many situations that call for prompt treatment. If you have one or more of the following knee pain problems, see a NuVive Medical care provider as soon as possible.

  • Popping or creaking noise when you straighten or move your knee
  • Significant redness or other discoloration
  • Significant swelling
  • Inability to straighten your leg without serious pain
  • Knee instability that causes your knee to give out unexpectedly
  • Inability to bear weight on your leg due to knee pain

If you try to ignore these problems, you run a serious risk of worsening the damage or even causing permanent disability. Fortunately, integrative medicine treatments can alleviate your pain and other symptoms.

What are the most common causes of knee pain?

There are a number of possible causes of knee pain, including:

  • Tendinitis - inflammation in the knee tendons
  • Tendon tear - partly or fully torn tendon in your knee
  • Bursitis - inflammation and swelling within the tiny sacs that cushion your knee
  • Torn meniscus - torn cartilage in your knee
  • ACL tear - torn ligament in your knee
  • Fracture - bone break in your knee
  • Patellofemoral syndrome - knee pain repeated stress like running causes
  • Osteoarthritis - causes knee pain due to wearing away of knee cartilage

There are a number of ways you can incur a knee injury, from workplace accidents to trip-and-fall accidents to chronic conditions. Regardless of the type of knee problem causing your pain, you can count on the medical care professionals at NuVive Medical for help.
