What Causes Knee Pain?
Knee pain is often caused by joint cartilage wear. When this begins to happen, your bones rub against each other, which causes your pain and swelling in the knee. Other factors that might be cause knee pain include: trauma from an injury, overuse, or osteoarthritis (OA).
Your Treatment Options for Knee Pain
Based upon your symptoms, your physician might simply prescribe anti-inflammatory medication to relieve pain and swelling. If the medication does not help the pain, your physician might recommend physical therapy or cortisone shots. If the pain and swelling is severe, your physician might recommend total knee replacement surgery, which will reduce the pain immediately.
