Pain may derive from the knee joint itself or from the surrounding muscles, ligaments, nerves, and soft tissues. As such, knee pain can range from a mild, bothersome twinge to a severe, debilitating shock that interferes with normal, daily activities. Patients suffering from knee pain should see a specialist as soon as possible to prevent their pain from becoming chronic. In most instances, patients may benefit from conservative treatment methods such as rest, ice, compression, elevation, and light stretching. Over-the-counter pain relievers may also provide some reprieve from mild to moderate knee pain. Severe cases of knee pain may call for an extensive physical therapy regimen to regain flexibility, range of motion, and strength. At AFC Physical Medicine & Chiropractic, we are dedicated to restoring function and reducing all levels of knee pain in patients.
