Why Won’t My Knee Stop Hurting?
Knee pain is a common complaint that affects millions of people worldwide, impacting their daily lives and overall well-being.
If you’ve ever wondered, “Why won’t my knee stop hurting?” you’re not alone. Dr. Albano, an expert in regenerative orthopedics, addresses this question, shedding light on the possible causes and offering valuable insights for those seeking relief.
Understanding the Complexity of Knee Pain
The knee is a complex joint that plays a crucial role in our ability to move and perform activities. It is important to recognize the complexity of the knee and understand that multiple factors can contribute to persistent pain.
Structural problems within the knee, such as ligament or cartilage damage, can lead to chronic pain. Injuries or wear and tear over time can affect the knee’s function and contribute to discomfort.
Inflammation and Arthritis
Inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis, are frequent culprits behind persistent knee pain. Inflammation impacts our joint health.
Muscle imbalances can also cause and prolong knee pain. It is important to strengthen the muscles around the knee to provide better support and reduce strain on the joint.
Biomechanics (the science of the movement of a living body)
Improper movement patterns can contribute to knee pain. Understanding and addressing these issues can be crucial for long-term pain relief.
Treatment Approaches and Prevention of Knee Pain
There are various treatment approaches that individuals suffering from knee pain can explore.
Physical therapy can benefit those with knee pain. It is important to tailor exercises to improve strength, flexibility, and overall joint function.
Depending on the underlying cause, medications such as anti-inflammatories or pain relievers may be recommended to manage symptoms; however, there are negative side effects to using these medications for long periods of time.
In some cases, the possibility of more invasive procedures, such as injections or surgery, can support those with severe and persistent knee issues. At the Albano Clinic, our focus is on helping people live better without surgery, so cellular therapy is an option we might recommend.
Lifestyle changes, including weight management and adopting proper movement techniques, are also crucial components of knee pain management and prevention.
