Knee Pain Q & A

Why are the knees so susceptible to damage?

The main reason that the knees suffer so much damage is that they're weight-bearing joints. Every time you stand, walk, or run, your knees have to bear your entire body weight. Your knees are made from a variety of soft tissues that can easily be damaged by wear-and-tear, sudden movements, bearing too much weight, or trauma.

All of this means that it's important to be mindful not to overload your knees. However, if you're already injured or experiencing knee problems, some highly effective, noninvasive solutions are available at Integrated Medical Solutions of Knoxville.

What are the most common causes of knee pain?

Knee pain can happen for many reasons, including:

  • Obesity
  • Poor spinal alignment
  • Sports injuries
  • Auto accidents
  • Trip or slip-and-fall accidents
  • Arthritis
  • Aging
  • Bursitis
  • Weakness in the knees' support muscles

No matter why your knee pain is there, treatment is crucial if you want to achieve full pain-free knee function again.

How are chronic and acute knee pain different?

Acute knee pain is the sudden type that can happen when you're injured in a football game or auto accident. You might have never experienced knee pain prior to the injury. It's usually a short-term problem if you get the treatment you need.

Chronic knee pain is the kind that persists over time. It can sneak up on you slowly, worsening gradually until you realize that you simply can't live with the daily or near-daily pain. Often, chronic knee pain results from aging (the wearing down of knee tissues over time) or illnesses like arthritis and bursitis.

Whether your knee pain is acute or chronic, Dr. Shreve can make an accurate diagnosis and then begin an effective treatment program.
