Knee Pain Q & A

Pivotal Health and Wellness

What causes knee pain?

There is no one cause of knee pain. More often than not, knee pain is the result of a series of reasons. These include joint problems, injuries, and arthritis.

Joint problems

Joint tissue damage can lead to severe knee pain from:

  • A dislocated kneecap
  • Improper walking due to hip or foot pain
  • Iliotibial syndrome, when connective tissue rubs against the thigh bone
  • Broken cartilage or bone

Injuries

Whether or not you’re an athlete, you’re just as likely to damage the ligaments and tendons surrounding your knee. The most common knee injuries are:  

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)
  • Fractures
  • Tendinitis

Arthritis

Four types of arthritis cause mild to severe knee pain:

  • Septic arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout

A healthy diet and regular exercise can significantly reduce the pressure put on your knee joints daily. The team at Pivotal Health and Wellness can help you find the best regimen if you’re experiencing knee pain.

What are the symptoms of knee pain?

The symptoms of knee pain include:

  • Redness and tenderness
  • Weakness
  • Crunching or popping sounds
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Inability to straighten the knee

When should you see a doctor for knee pain?

You should consider seeing a doctor if your knee pain is continuous, with no sign of improvement. You should call if you experience:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Warmth and tenderness around the joint
  • Fever

The team at Pivotal Health and Wellness helps you determine the exact cause of your pain. From there, your practitioner develops an individualized treatment plan to minimize and hopefully eliminate your knee pain with as little intervention as possible.

How does stem cell therapy work?

The most common knee procedures involve minor or extensive surgical intervention. However, the team at Pivotal Health and Wellness focuses on using stem cell therapy precisely to avoid the need for invasive surgery.

Stem cells, which come from umbilical cord blood are injected directly into the affected area.

When damaged tissue doesn’t contain enough stem cells to repair itself, quick, noninvasive injections can significantly contribute to a swift recovery. The injected stem cells replace damaged ones.

Knee pain can be debilitating, but it doesn’t have to be. Call Pivotal Health and Wellness as soon as possible or book an appointment online to put an end to your knee pain.
