Why do I have knee pain?

The reasons you have knee pain are many. Your knees are complex joints that support much of your body’s weight when you stand, walk, and run. The stress you place on your knees daily takes its toll, leading to problems that cause pain.

Any injury or disease that affects the structure or function of the knee can cause knee pain. These injuries and diseases include:

  • Knee arthritis
  • Ligament injuries
  • Meniscus tears
  • Muscle strains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Bursitis (inflammation of the bursa)
  • Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendons)

You could also have knee pain if you have a problem with one of your other weight-bearing joints, like hip arthritis or a back condition.

You can develop knee pain following an acute injury. However, most people get knee pain due to the degenerative changes that affect the knee joint, a condition called knee osteoarthritis.

When do I need sports medicine for knee pain?

You should schedule an appointment with the sports medicine specialists at Breakthrough Regenerative Orthopedics if your knee pain affects your daily life, whether the pain is from a sports injury or not.

The Breakthrough Regenerative Orthopedics experts treat all types of knee pain, offering cutting-edge therapies to heal your pain’s source, restoring knee health and function.

They ask detailed questions about your pain and when it started. They examine your knee, review your medical history, and ask about your daily routine. They might also order imaging tests to confirm or rule out a diagnosis that explains your knee pain.
