A number of health conditions can either cause or worsen pain around the knee joint, including a recent or previously unhealed injury, tendonitis, arthritis, and other inflammatory disorders.
While minor knee-related issues often heal on their own, other instances of knee pain can persist, making it difficult to walk, run, or even put weight on the affected limb. If resting a painful knee, or using over-the-counter pain medication does not effectively reduce the pain you’re experiencing, it’s time to visit a doctor.
At Swift Health, our dedicated team of medical professionals can evaluate the source of a patient’s knee pain, diagnose conditions, and prescribe the best possible treatment options.
We understand that each of our patients is unique, and as such, we do not treat every case of knee pain the same way. Depending on several factors, including the patient’s current health, medical history, and diagnosis, a variety of treatments can be applied to reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation of the knee joint.
In many situations, one or more of the following solutions can be effective in reducing knee pain and encouraging proper healing.
- Resting the affected limb
- Hot and cold therapy with warm/cold compresses
- Anti-inflammatory medication
- Massage therapy
- Pain relievers
- Gentle physiotherapy
- Joint compression
For knee pain conditions that do not seem to improve with time and treatment, Swift Health’s medical professionals will evaluate patients for more advanced treatment options.
