Knee pain can be caused by a variety of things. Sometimes surgery is recommended, but other times the cause of your pain is not as bad as you think. Below we outline some common causes and how to find relief.
Knee Pain Causes and Symptoms
The location and severity of knee pain can vary depending on the cause. Some symptoms you may notice –
- Aching in knees while standing
- Swelling and stiffness
- Redness and warmth
- Weakness or instability
- Popping noises
- Pain when bending or straightening
While knee pain may be caused by injuries, joint issues, or arthritis, one of the most common causes of recurring knee pain that we see in the office is muscle tighness. The good news in this case is that with proper treatment and at home maintenance, it is possible to live pain free. If you are interested in trying some at home exercises now, see our videos here.
