Knee problems are another common injury.

 

Knee injuries often occur during an auto accident or a slip and fall scenario.  Knee injuries can lead to long-term loss of mobility and changes in quality of life. Other causes of knee pain are: Overuse of the knee joint and arthritic changes in the joint.

The Doctors at The Doc Tony Clinics will conduct a physical examination to identify the cause of knee pain. Additional tests, such as X-rays, MRI as well as nerve tests may be needed to identify the source of pain.

If you are diagnosed with overuse of the knee joint, the treatment goal will be to restore the balance of the muscles, regain movement and correct mismatches. A key can be used to restore the alignment of the kneecap and the knee joint.

If you have knee problems as a result of injury, your Doctor can recommend medication and / or physical therapy, along with healthy lifestyle changes to prevent future occurrences . Knee pain as a result of arthritic changes in the joint is usually treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, along with lifestyle changes to reduce pain.
