Did you know that your knee joint is the largest joint in your body? Not only does it support the majority of your weight and movement, but it also acts as a shock absorber. It’s no wonder why it’s so incapacitating when good knees go bad.
Knee problems can arise at any age due to injury, overuse or arthritis. Sore knees can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications and RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation), but severe knee pain should be examined by a knee doctor right away — especially if you heard a “pop” during the injury, or if the knee can’t move or support your weight.
Treatment may range from nonsurgical options like physical therapy, injections or immobilization to surgical options like knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction or total knee replacement.
