Knees

There are many potential causes of knee pain, from injuries to arthritis. Treatment will vary depending on the underlying cause, but may include medication, physical therapy, or surgery. For mild to moderate cases of knee pain, over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can be effective. More severe cases may require prescription medications or surgery. Physical therapy can be helpful for both reducing pain and restoring function. Surgery is typically only necessary in cases of extreme knee pain or damage to the joint. If you are experiencing knee pain, it is important to speak with a doctor to determine the cause and receive appropriate treatment.
