Knee pain is among the most prevalent joint pain conditions. Some causes of knee pain may require surgical intervention, but this is not always the case. Quite often, the source of knee pain can be addressed through therapeutic and orthopedic bracing methods. Among the causes of knee pain are fractures, dislocations, arthritis, and injuries to the ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and kneecap. In fact, it is common for knee pain to originate from a change in gait resulting from hip or ankle pain.
In order to ensure that there is no further damage and injury to the joints, it is vital to determine the underlying cause of knee pain. Your healthcare provider should evaluate you fully to determine the cause of your knee pain. Someone who specializes in mobility disorders can look at your functional range of motion, gait, posture, and other physical aspects to help zero in on the cause of your pain.
