Common Causes of Knee Pain

We depend on our knee joints working properly more than we may be aware. Knee pain can make even the simplest of tasks difficult, and it can arise for a variety of reasons. You can sometimes manage pain on your own early on and with mild conditions, but you can depend on Dr. Darin Bush of Mobility Spine and Sports in Fort Lauderdale, FL, to help guide you to the best possible treatment.

Risk Factors

Overuse of the joint can lead to injuries that could cause chronic knee pain. Although athletes are commonly afflicted, anyone who spends many hours on their feet because of work is also at risk. Improper preparation before physical activity, such as stretching, and improper form or posture can also lead to injury. Just as common is the possibility of aggravating an already existing injury, to which age and bodyweight contribute.

At-Home Care 

For at-home care, immediately after an injury, you can employ the RICE method, which stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. It involves the use of these to help with inflammation. But it is not a substitute for professional treatment, especially if your discomfort doesn't improve.

Knee Pain Treatment in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Your doctor can treat your knee pain with non-surgical orthopedics, physical therapy, and rehabilitation.

Although surgery is sometimes a necessary step for severe conditions, through physical therapy your doctor can help strengthen the muscles around the joint, and thus the joint itself to slowly regain movement and provide relief. Physical therapy can often help you avoid surgery, and it is typically prescribed after surgery to help restrengthen the joint.

We also do injection therapy for painful knees. We do anti-inflammatory injections for inflammatory processes, and we also offer platelet-rich plasma as well as orthobiologics for regenerative treatments. OMT is also used to increase mobility of the knee joint.

If you are struggling with knee pain relief is just one phone call away. Schedule a consultation today with Dr. Bush of Mobility Spine and Sports in Fort Lauderdale, FL, by dialing (954) 414-7080.
