Orthopedic Causes & Treatment for Knee Pain

 

The knee, the joint most often singled out for treatment by orthopedic specialists, accounts for approximately 11 million orthopedic physician visits. Because of its complicated orthopedic construction, the knee is especially vulnerable to injury. Knee pain can be caused by orthopedic conditions including:

  • Ligament injury or tears- orthopedic injuries caused by twisting or quickly changing direction, landing, quick stops and blows to the knee during contact sports
  • Torn cartilage-a tear in cartilage attached to the knee ligaments as a shock absorber
  • Chondromalacia patellae-grinding in the knee due to softening of the knee cartilage or misalignment of the kneecap

 

Orthopedic Treatment and Prevention

 

Traditional conservative orthopedic treatment for mild knee pain includes:

  • RICE-Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation 
  • Orthopedic support and orthopedic immobilization products specifically constructed for the knee
