Understanding Knee Pain

 

Knee pain can be challenging to diagnose, but medical history, a physical examination and diagnostic tests can help establish the underlying cause of knee pain.

 

To diagnose the knee injury, a physician will gather information about the exact location, onset and severity of the pain. During the physical exam, they will evaluate and examine the knee in a number of different positions, checking for swelling, redness and signs of injury. The doctor may also order diagnostic tests—such as an X-ray, MRI, or CT scan—to detect fractures, dislocations and any changes in the knee joint caused by arthritis.

 

Depending on the cause, knee pain may be accompanied by other symptoms, such as inflammation, swelling and stiffness. There are a variety of causes of knee pain, the most common of which includes arthritis and injury. The most common types of knee injuries that cause pain also include the following:
 

  • Knee ligament tear: These are common in athletes and usually involve a torn muscle or ligament caused by a sudden stop or change in motion. Injured knee ligaments are graded as grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3, according to the severity of the tear.

  • Meniscal tear or ruptured cartilage: These injuries are commonly caused by traumatic injuries in younger patients, or are due to degenerative processes in older adults.

  • Knee bursitis: People who are constantly on their knees—like plumbers, roofers or athletes—who are prone to direct, hard hits to the knees, usually develop this type of inflammation in their knees.

  • Patellar tendon tear: This overuse injury is common in people who are active runners—it’s also called jumper’s knee.

Treating Knee Problems

 

Before treating knee injuries, It is important to understand that ligament and tendon tissues support the joints and are responsible for the joint space, as much as or  more than the cartilage does.
 

We determine whether the best approach for therapy should be stem cells or PRP based on the extent of injury or damage to the knee. For example,  if there is a minor tear or sprained ligament, PRP might be a better suited therapy.  In the case of more severe and degenerative conditions, stem cells might be the recommended therapy to repair and regenerate the knee.
