We commonly attribute knee pain and related ailments to athletes out on the field. In reality, these associations are equally relevant to non-athletes as well. IBJI’s experienced knee doctors understand the different types of injuries that athletes and non-athletes can suffer. IBJI is dedicated to utilizing up-to-date knowledge, treatment, and technology to find the true cause of your knee pain.
When to Address Your Knee Pain with a Doctor
Finding the cause of your knee pain isn’t easy to self-diagnose. With every step you take, the knee absorbs all of the bodies’ pressure from the ground up. The stress from this fundamental movement is only the beginning of your knee pain.
You should consult an IBJI orthopedist when you experience: popping or crunching, swelling, instability, weakness or a lessened range of motion in the knee. Two common causes of knee pain are ligament damage, the Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (overuse and friction on cartilage behind the knee) and Osteoarthritis. IBJI’s orthopedic knee doctors will pinpoint the cause of your knee pain and apply the best knee pain relief treatment for your diagnosis.
