Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Think of all of the stress you put on your knees each day: They support your body weight, absorb shock, and stay stable when you twist or turn. Needless to say, your knees are prone to injury and damage. If you’re experiencing knee pain, it might be related to or caused by:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
  • Dislocated knee cap
  • Patellar tendinitis 
  • Torn meniscus
  • Knee bursitis
  • Fractures 
  • Arthritis 

It’s also possible to have knee pain because of a loose body getting stuck in the joint. For instance, wear-and-tear can cause cartilage or bone fragments to break off. They can float into your joint space and cause friction when you move your knee, and this, in turn, can become painful. 

When should I see a doctor for knee pain?

Pain Management of Oklahoma provides comprehensive diagnostic testing and treatments for knee pain. Dr. Henderson and Dr. Halford encourage you to book an exam if your knee pain is associated with:

  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Joint instability 
  • Popping sensations
  • Redness or bruising
  • Limited range of motion

It’s particularly important to come in to Pain Management of Oklahoma if you can’t bear any weight on your knee or if you’re unable to fully extend your knee. Dr. Henderson and Dr. Halford can help you find a treatment that provides relief and promotes healing, so you won’t have to let knee pain take over your life. 

Which knee pain treatment do I need?
