Get Local Treatment For Your Knee Pain

Even the simplest actions can become excruciatingly painful when dealing with knee or hip discomfort.

Stability and mobility are provided by the hips and knees when walking and moving about. It’s possible that your joints won’t perform properly because of an injury, arthritic change, or general soreness in the hips or knees.

Additionally, hip and knee pain may result in a lack of mobility and muscle weakness, as well the inability to bear weight and trouble rising from the chair.

When you lean over to get your shoes, you may feel knee pain. As you’re going up or down the stairs, you can be bothered the most if your knees hurt when you bend.

The natural, effective pain management alternatives, such as Supartz, provided by All American Medical can help you move the way you want to, no matter how your knee pain manifests itself.

What causes hip pain?

  • Tendonitis is the most prevalent cause of acute hip discomfort.
  • Arthritis can cause pain, stiff and tender joints, and difficulty walking.
  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease of the joints caused by the degradation of the cartilage that protects them with age.
  • Infectious arthritis is caused by the joint’s loss of cartilage due to an infection.
  • An attack on the joints by the body’s immune system results in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is less common compared to osteoarthritis but still affects many people.
  • Bursitis of the trochanter
  • Trochanteric bursitis is another possibility for hip pain. When the bursa, a fluid-filled sac located near the hip joint, gets inflamed, this condition is known as bursitis.
  • Injuries to the hip, overuse of the joints, or poor posture are all potential causes of trochanteric bursitis.
  • In those with osteoporosis, the weakening of the bones, possibly from hormonal changes, vitamin deficiencies, or lack of weight-bearing exercise, can increase the risk of hip fractures following trauma.

What causes chronic knee pain?

There is a difference between short-term and long-term knee discomfort. Knee pain is common after an accident or injury, and it can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Treatment for chronic knee pain is unusual, and it’s not usually traceable to a single event. In most cases, it’s the outcome of a number of factors.

Knee pain can be caused by a variety of medical disorders and diseases. These are only a few examples:

  • osteoarthritis: pain, inflammation, and joint destruction caused by degeneration and deterioration of the joint
  • tendinitis: pain in the front of the knee that is made worse when climbing, taking stairs, or walking up an incline
  • bursitis: inflammation caused by repeated overuse or injury of the knee
  • chondromalacia patella: damaged cartilage under the kneecap
  • gout: arthritis caused by the buildup of uric acid
  • Baker’s cyst: a buildup of synovial fluid (fluid that lubricates the joint) behind the knee
  • rheumatoid arthritis (RA): a chronic autoimmune inflammatory disorder that causes painful swelling and can eventually cause joint deformity and bone erosion
  • dislocation: dislocation of the kneecap most often the result of trauma
  • meniscus tear: a rupture in one or more of the cartilage in the knee
  • torn ligament: tear in one of the four ligaments in the knee — the most commonly injured ligament is the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
  • bone tumors: osteosarcoma (second most prevalent bone cancer), most commonly occurs in the knee

The treatment at our clinic can alleviate pain and enhance general functional mobility, whether you suffer from hip or knee problems.

When should I seek emergency care?

If you have hip and knee discomfort that persists for more than a few days, you can come to see us, and we can devise a strategy to treat your pain.

This hip and knee discomfort can include one or more of the following:

  • swelling
  • tenderness
  • soreness
  • warmth
  • redness

If you experience any of the following, you may have a more serious issue:

  • deformity or severe bruising
  • severe pain and swelling
  • symptoms in other parts of the body
  • symptoms that persist longer than a few days or get worse instead of better
  • other health conditions that could complicate healing
  • signs of infection, such as a fever

Septic arthritis, an infection of the joints, is a possible cause of these symptoms. Septic arthritis can lead to malformed joints and osteoarthritis if it is not managed. Please contact your primary care physician or visit the emergency room.

How is Hip Pain Or Knee Pain Treated?

Our doctors will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that reduces pain and increases your range of motion and strength. Regaining pre-injury health is the ultimate goal of treatment.

Most of our patient knee pain sufferers prefer natural, non-invasive rehabilitation options. Prolonged painkiller use is also a possibility. But are you willing to risk becoming hooked on these drugs? What if surgery isn’t an option for you?

We treat persistent knee pain using regenerative medicine and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

PRP therapies involve drawing your own blood, separating it with a centrifuge, and injecting the concentrated platelets and plasma into your knee. Blood molecules, including platelets, growth factors, and cytokines, help heal wounds.

When you suffer from knee pain, we use PRP to supply the required healing naturally.
