Knee

Pain in the knee can result from a condition that has developed over time due to overuse or from the occurrence of a recent sports injury, such as a meniscus tear or dislocated kneecap. In some circumstances, and if not identified early, conditions such as knee arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, making knee surgery, such as knee replacement, total knee arthroplasty, or knee arthroscopy, viable options to relieving your pain.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of knee pain, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible before your knee injury or condition worsens.

  • A popping or snapping noise in or around the knee
  • Feeling like your knee gave out while walking, running, jumping, or turning
  • Severe joint pain, pain in the knee, pain in the kneecap, or pain behind the knee
  • Inability to bend or move the knee
  • Limping or inability to walk comfortably
  • Swelling of the knee, joint, or calf area

Tips for Healthy Joints

As the connections between your bones, your knee joints will sustain a certain amount of wear and tear as we age. Remaining pain- and arthritis-free requires practicing good knee joint preservation techniques. The following techniques will help you to treat your knee joints with care as they age.

Movement

Every day, move your knee joints through its full range of motion to sustain mobility and freedom from pain. Make sure your movements are slow and gentle to avoid injury, and be careful not to overextend.

Use

Be sure to extend and flex your knee joints in the manner for which they are intended. Avoid overextending or stressful positions as well as techniques that could put you at risk for injury.

Stay Active

Avoid keeping your knee joints in the same position for a prolonged period of time. This will help to keep your knee joints from becoming stiff.
