What Causes Knee Pain?
Knee pain can be caused by a variety of reasons and the location of your knee pain can help inform as to what the cause is. Some of the more common complaints are pain in the front of the knee, pain on the inner side of the knee, pain on the outside of the knee, pain under the kneecap and knee joint pain. Pain can be caused by ligament sprains, muscle strains and
movement inefficiencies. To get a knee pain diagnosis it is best to get your
knee assessed to get targeted knee pain treatment.
Knee Pain Treatment
Depending on where your knee pain is located and the cause, the treatment plan can range from exercises for knee pain, stretches for knee pain, braces to help support or offload to movement modifications to decrease knee pain when running, walking, or bending.
Knee Pain Relief
Icing is a great tool to help with knee pain especially if you find that pain increases throughout the day and you have some swelling. Icing with an ice pack for 15 minutes on and 45 minutes off can help reduce pain and coupled with elevation of the leg, can reduce swelling as well.
What is Patellofemoral Knee Pain?
Commonly known as PFPS this is usually felt at the front
of the knee and can be felt most when going up or down stairs. Sometimes it is also caused by excessive amounts of activity. PFPS pain is felt usually around the soft tissue on the front of the knee cap. Sometimes the pain is also felt because the patella or the knee cap does not track in the groove of the femur or thighbone smoothly.
How do I treat Patellofemoral Knee Pain?
Usually, conservative rest, ice, elevation and compression treatment work really well to treat PFPS. After a complete physical exam, your therapist may also recommend some exercises to help you strengthen the muscles around the knee. Custom orthotics can help a lot for knee pain by aligning the
foot and lower leg. Wearing properly fitted shoes can also make a big difference in treating knee pain.
What is Patellar Tendonitis?
Patellar Tendonitis is most commonly referred to as “jumper’s knee” although you can get it if you don’t participate in jumping sports as well. It is actually an injury of the tendon that connects the tibia (shin bone) to the patella (kneecap).
