What is Knee Pain?
In less serious cases, the following criteria warrant a trip to the doctor:
- Knee pain doesn’t dissipate or disappear on its own after several days
- Your knee can’t bear any weight
- Notable swelling appears around your knee
- Your knee can’t bend or extend in its normal range of motion
- Even small injuries to the knee can make you more susceptible to repeated knee injuries, so it’s essential to see a doctor for both treatment and prevention.
What treatments are available for knee pain?
Treatment for knee pain depends on the type and location of its source and is personalized on a case-by-case basis. The treatment for arthritis, for example, is vastly different than treatment related to a fracture.
The providers at Washington Center for Pain Management use an advanced, multidisciplinary approach to pain and incorporate regenerative medicine and other methods to relieve your pain, such as:
- Nerve blocks
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
- Steroid injections
- Stem cell therapy
No knee pain is untreatable. If you’re ready to find relief, contact the practice by calling the office directly or requesting your initial consultation online.
