Finding the Cause
Determining the cause of your symptoms may be straightforward, or it may require special tests to make a diagnosis. Once the cause of your knee pain can be determined, appropriate treatment can begin.
Once you have found the cause of your knee condition, you will want to learn more about the problem. Having an understanding of the cause of your knee pain will help you effectively treat the condition.
Treatment of knee problems often begins with simple treatments, and becomes more complex if the problem persists.
- Anti-Inflammatory Medications
- Joint Supplements
- Cortisone Injections
- Knee Arthroscopy
- Meniscus Surgery
- Lateral Release
- Treatments for Cartilage Damage
- Cartilage Replacement
- Partial Knee Replacement
- Total Knee Replacement
- Knee Replacement in Women
- Knee Osteotomy
One of the most important aspects of any treatment is rehabilitation. Rehabilitation is important because the knee tends to become weak following injuries and treatment interventions. Maintaining and improving strength and motion will help aid in full recovery.
