Where Does Your Pain Start?
As with any other joint in your body, overuse of the knee joint can lead to strain and pain. Knee problems most often occur during sports activities, work-related tasks, or after years of wear and tear. Arthritis and injuries cause knee pain that often doesn’t go away on its own and requires medical evaluation.
At Lifestyle Medical Center when we look at the knee, we look at the entire process of what the knee does and how other areas of the body affect the knee to find the root cause of the knee pain. For example, foot issues, such as a flat arch (pronation), can cause the knee to absorb a lot of extra pressure when the foot does not come in contact with the ground properly. A pair of custom orthotics could help with knee pain relief in this case, even if there is no foot pain.
It’s time to schedule your consultation when you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Popping, scraping, or crunching noises
- Difficulty walking
- Changes in your routine to avoid certain movements (avoiding stairs, quitting your favorite sport)
- Redness and swelling
- Difficulty straightening your leg
- Severe weakness
- Signs of a fracture
- Difficulty putting weight on your knee

With a variety of treatments and state-of-the-art technology the Integrated medical team at Lifestyle Medical Center uses, it’s possible to treat knee pain without surgery. However, the longer you ignore your symptoms, the less chance you have of avoiding surgery. That’s why it’s so important to get evaluated for knee pain promptly.
