Use Your Legs Comfortably Again

Maybe your knee pain has appeared gradually over time as you grew older. Or perhaps your knee joints have been hurting since an injury. Knee pain can flare up for various reasons, but there’s one thing you can be sure of, no matter the cause: the pain will grow worse over time, and if you don’t address the issue, you may find it harder to move your legs correctly. Dr. Rozenberg can help you understand your knee pain and find a suitable solution; call her today to schedule an appointment for knee pain treatment in Culver City, Van Nuys & Ontario, CA.

Symptoms of Knee Pain

The primary symptom of knee pain is self-explanatory: persistent discomfort in and/or around the knees. Depending on the cause, you might also notice some swelling or stiffness of the joints. Sometimes your knees will look red and feel warm to the touch. In extreme cases, you might notice some weakness or instability, and there could be a popping or crunching noise whenever you stand up or move your leg. In the most severe cases, you might be unable to fully straighten your knee. Get in touch with us as soon as you realize that you’re suffering from persistent knee pain; you don’t want the symptoms to grow any worse than they already have.

What Causes Knee Pain?

The knee is a complex joint with numerous mechanisms that must function optimally to facilitate movements. The knee is also one of the most used joints in the body. As such, knee pain can occur because of injuries, underlying medical conditions, and other problems. Knee pain can be connected to several different issues:

  • Osteoarthritis: Once considered simple wear and tear, osteoarthritis is now considered a disease that damages the joints throughout the body, including the knees. Most people develop osteoarthritis after the age of 50. Small fragments of bone can become embedded in the cartilage, leading to bone overgrowth and painful symptoms.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: This type of arthritis occurs when the immune system starts mistakenly attacking the body’s tissues. The exact cause is unknown, but the condition generally makes it difficult to perform ordinary tasks, and the cartilage between the bones will slowly start to erode.
  • Post-Traumatic Arthritis: Sometimes, osteoarthritis might occur after an injury. Once the cartilage or bone is damaged, the mechanics of the joint can be altered, making excessive wear and tear more likely.
  • Torn Ligament: The knee contains four connective tissues known as ligaments; if one is torn, you will not only be in severe pain, but you will have difficulty moving your leg properly.
  • Dislocation: A joint becomes dislocated when a bone slips out of place. This can occur if you fall or suffer a harsh blow to the joint. A dislocated knee causes pain during movement, and you might notice numbness or tingling around the area.
  • Tendinitis: The tendons are the tissues that join the muscles to the bones. Sometimes the tendons can become inflamed, leading to acute pain and tenderness. This can make it hard to move the joint in question without discomfort.
  • Knee Bursitis: Your knee joint contains small sacs of fluid called bursae that help the tendons and ligaments move smoothly. Sometimes the bursae can become inflamed after an injury, leading to discomfort.

How Can Knee Pain Be Treated?

Our office has multiple non-surgical solutions for knee pain. For example, our MLS laser can emit a special wavelength that enters the tissue and reduces inflammation in your knees, reducing swelling. This also stimulates the cells to repair themselves faster. In other words, the treatment stops your pain and jump-starts the healing process. We also offer the NeuroMed MATRIX system, which uses electroanalgesia to relieve pain. Simply put, a small amount of electricity is applied to the site of the discomfort to interfere with the body’s pain receptors. In other words, it stops the pain from reaching your brain. Our non-surgical, all-natural knee pain solutions pave the way to a pain-free life.

How to Prevent Knee Pain?

The knee is a weight-bearing joint and one of the most commonly injured joints in the body. Knee pain is a common problem with a variety of possible causes. It can be caused by injury, arthritis, or other conditions. But you can follow these tips to minimize the risk of knee pain.

  • Maintain a healthy weight. Carrying extra weight puts extra stress on your knees.
  • Exercise regularly. Exercise strengthens the muscles around your knees and reduces pain.
  • Wear the right shoes. Wear shoes that fit well and provide good support.
  • Rest your knees. If your knees are painful, rest them. Don’t engage in activities that aggravate knee pain or cause additional discomfort.
  • Ice your knees. Put ice on your knees for 20 minutes several times a day.
  • Elevate your legs. Put a pillow under your legs to take the pressure off your knees when sitting or lying down.
