Have You Been Experiencing Knee Pain?

Did you know that knee pain is a very common complaint among adults and is most often associated with general wear and tear from daily activities? In fact, the most frequent causes of knee pain are related to ageing, injury or repeated stress on the knee.

Common problems for those suffering from knee pain includes:

Sprain or strained ligaments

This is usually caused by a blow to the knee or a sudden twist of the knee. Symptoms often include pain, swelling and difficulty in walking

Torn cartilage

Cartilage tears can occur with sprains. Treatment can sometimes involve wearing a brace during an activity to protect from further injury.

Tendonitis

Inflammation of the tendons may be the result of overuse of a tendon during certain activities such as running or cycling

Arthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis that affects the knee. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative process where the cartilage in the join gradually wears away and is more common in middle-age and older patients.

Whatever may be the cause of your knee pain, it can become a real nuisance and in some circumstances can be extremely debilitating.


It’s important to remember that you are not alone! Millions of people around the world suffer from knee pain and the key to overcoming it is understanding what is causing you pain and knowing what treatment options are available to you.

It is very rare that we will recommend surgery, and often operations are only ever required when non-surgical treatment does not work. The Droitwich Knee Clinic has a history of operating on only about 20% of its patients. We try all non-surgical options before we recommend surgery and all else has failed to reduce pain. Keyhole operation (in specific cases only), osteotomy (to redistribute weight), half joint replacement and total knee replacement are the surgical treatment options available.


One thing that osteoarthritis does is that it interrupts your activities of daily living and work making it very difficult to function. Left untreated it will affect the quality of life. So get your problems looked at now before it becomes a major problem, as the cost of getting this done now outweighs the cost of waiting for treatment after.
