Orthopedic Knee Treatments

Orthopedic knee pain can stem from various causes such as injury, arthritis, or overuse. Treatment typically begins with conservative measures like rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), along with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for pain management. Physical therapy plays a crucial role in strengthening the muscles around the knee, improving flexibility and balance. If these methods are ineffective, medical interventions such as corticosteroid injections or hyaluronic acid injections may be considered. In severe cases, surgical options like arthroscopy, partial knee replacement, or total knee replacement may be necessary. Consult with one of our premier orthopedic specialists for an accurate diagnosis and tailored treatment plan.

Knee Pain & Discomfort

Knee PainKnee pain can develop over time or result from overuse of the knee resulting in osteoarthritis, arthritis and/or Runner’s knee.  Pain in the knee can also stem from injuries sustained during sports activities; injuries that can involve meniscus tears or dislocation of the knee.

If sports injuries are not treated in time and appropriately, ongoing pain such as arthritis can cause much pain and result in restricted mobility and a lower quality of life. Options to relieve pain and restore activity are available and can include surgeries such as partial or full knee replacement, arthroplasty or arthroscopy.

It’s very important to attend to and seek treatment for any knee conditions and/or injuries as soon as possible in order to avoid further damage.
