Knee pain refers to any discomfort that occurs in the joint, tendons, ligaments, or muscles that make up your knee. Your knees are the largest joint in your body and are made up of three bones and several tendons and ligaments that help hold these bones together.
The components of your knee are responsible for helping your sit, stand, bend, walk, and do just about every other daily activity you can think of. However, because of its complex nature, your knee is susceptible to injury and disease.
Osteoarthritis is one of the most common causes of knee pain. This type of arthritis develops when the cartilage in between your knee joint wears away, leading to bone-on-bone contact, pain, and inflammation.
The bony growths that develop from your damaged joint also affect the connective tissue, impairing movement.
Your knee pain may also develop from a condition called bursitis, which is inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion your knee joint. Poor posture and running may increase your risk of knee bursitis.
Knee pain can also develop from an injury, such as a ligament or tendon tear. Knee injuries increase your risk of osteoarthritis.
The experienced physical therapists at Reddy-Care Physical & Occupational Therapy can develop a personalized treatment plan to help you get relief from your knee pain.
When you come in for a consultation, your physical therapist conducts a comprehensive evaluation to understand your symptoms, the underlying cause, and your ultimate functional goals.
Based on the information gathered during your initial assessment, your physical therapist develops a plan of action.
