Knee Pain Q & A
Why do I have knee pain?
You may experience knee pain for several reasons. Your knee is a complex joint made up of bones, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and muscle. These various components work together to help you walk, run, lift, squat, and sit.
You can experience knee pain as a result of injury or degeneration in the joint. Some common causes of knee pain are:
- Sports Injuries
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
- Patellar tendonitis
- Meniscal tear
- Loose bodies (cartilage)
You may also develop knee pain if you have a condition affecting your foot, hip, or back, as this may put additional stress on your knee joint, forcing you to rely more heavily on it for weight-bearing support.
What can I expect during a knee pain evaluation?
When you come into Prime Regenerative and Pain Management, you can expect a comprehensive evaluation. Dr. Sen takes a holistic approach to care and assesses your whole health, not just the health of your knee.
The goal at Prime Regenerative and Pain Management isn't only to relieve your knee pain but also to prevent it from recurring.
During your evaluation, Dr. Sen evaluates your symptoms, including how long you've experienced knee pain, your medical history, family history, exercise habits, and more. He also conducts a physical exam to determine what's causing your knee pain.
To further evaluate your knee, Dr. Sen may also request diagnostic imaging, such as X-rays or MRIs, which may be used to confirm the underlying cause of your knee pain.
