Knee Pain & Injury Care
Your knees are important components that help you stay on your feet. However, when you experience severe or frequently returning knee pain, it can be a serious concern.
Mild knee pain, especially following an injury, is often treated with over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen or with the R.I.C.E. method of rest, ice, compression, and elevation.
Common Knee Pain Conditions
However, when knee pain persists and hampers your mobility, it can be due to a degenerative or chronic condition, such as:
- Avascular necrosis (loss of bone tissue due to limited blood flow)
- Osteomyelitis (bone infection)
- Patellar tendinitis
- Torn meniscus cartilage
Or, it could be another serious condition that needs to be addressed by orthopaedic specialists like the team at Orthopaedic Surgical Consultants.
