The Basics of Knee Pain
The knee has a huge job: It’s responsible for bearing the most weight of any joint in the body. As such, it’s vulnerable to a range of injuries and disorders, and knee pain can be among the most frustrating and debilitating conditions for patients of all ages.
How Does It Start?
Knee pain can come from a variety of sources. Sudden movements, accidental twists, falls and overuse are the most common culprits on the injury side, but degenerative disorders like gout, bursitis and tendonitis are often to blame. You might also experience referred pain from a kneecap dislocation, leg strain or hip problem.
Our Northern Mississippi Physical Therapists will also examine the possibility of osteoarthritis. As the world’s most common joint disorder, this painful condition affects more than 14 million people, and it requires thorough treatment and expert rehabilitation to keep it in check.
When Should I See a Northern Mississippi Knee Specialist?
Don’t let knee pain fester. If you’re experiencing an aching sensation that won’t let up, having trouble walking or finding yourself with a range of motion that’s severely limited, contact the Northern Mississippi physical therapists at Pro Therapy to set up an evaluation.
