Knee Pain Q & A

What are the symptoms of serious knee pain?

Knee pain varies from person-to-person based on a number of factors like the root cause of the knee pain, their weight, and their activity level. Some of the most common symptoms of knee pain include:

  • Stiffness
  • Pain when you put weight on that leg
  • Instability
  • Trouble straightening your leg
  • A crunching or popping sound when you bend your knee
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Warmth to the touch

All of these symptoms are worth your attention. All too often, people downplay their knee pain. But the above symptoms aren’t normal. If you’re experiencing ongoing knee pain, talk to one of the dedicated knee pain experts at Summit Pain Alliance. Not only can they help you find relief, but they can offer treatment that prevents permanent damage to your knee joint. 

What causes knee pain?

Knee pain can be caused by an injury, a problem with the way the components of your knee are working together, or another condition. Arthritis is one of the leading causes of knee pain. 

You might think that knee pain is a normal part of aging — but it isn't. Knee pain over time is often caused by osteoarthritis, or wear-and-tear damage to your knee’s cartilage. Cartilage is the connective tissue in your knee that allows the bones of your knee joint to glide over one another. As the cartilage wears away, you experience more friction when using your knee, causing pain. 

Your Summit Pain Alliance provider works with you to diagnose the root cause of your knee pain, so they can deliver targeted treatment, bringing you relief and protecting your knee’s long-term functionality. 

How is knee pain treated?

At Summit Pain Alliance, the team is dedicated to taking a minimally invasive treatment approach. They use targeted treatments, often injected directly into your knee, to deliver effective pain relief. Some of the injectable knee pain treatments they offer include:

  • Steroid injections
  • Bursa injections
  • Viscosupplementation
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
  • FlōGraft® therapy
  • Nerve blocks

They also offer radiofrequency ablation, acupuncture, and chiropractic care. Your Summit Pain Alliance provider blends the right treatments to best address your specific knee pain.
