Knee Pain Q & A

Cornerstone Integrated Healthcare

What causes knee pain?

Multiple conditions impact your knees, causing pain.

Your knee joint consists of multiple bones, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage, which all work together to allow you to run, walk, and jump. When an issue occurs with any of these parts, it can lead to pain and mobility problems.

In many cases, a degenerative issue or overuse causes knee pain. Common conditions include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Sprained or torn ligament
  • Meniscal or cartilage injury

Beyond joint pain in the knee, these conditions cause inflammation, which can lead to swelling, stiffness, and mobility issues. In some cases, your knee may appear red or be warm to the touch.

You may also notice that your knee is weak or feels unstable.

How can you improve knee pain at home?

When you’re experiencing knee pain or inflammation, the team at Cornerstone Integrated Healthcare recommends treating your symptoms with a PRICE regimen:

  • Protect
  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

If you don’t notice improvement with a week, contact Dr. Price.

How is knee pain treated?

Dr. Price treats knee pain with numerous services. Depending on your pain level and the underlying condition, he may recommend physical therapy or prescribe exercises that strengthen and stretch the supportive muscles around your knee.

If you need a more aggressive treatment, he may recommend Supartz Fx™ injections. These injections offer you a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical approach to reduce knee pain. Using hyaluronic acid, Supartz Fx lubricates and cushions your knee, reducing inflammation and irritation.

In some cases, such as with degenerative knee issues, Dr. Price may suggest stem cell injections. He takes undifferentiated stem cells and injects them right where you need them. These stem cells spur cellular regeneration in your knee, enhancing the joint’s healing ability.
