If so, please contact Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers to learn about how we can ease your suffering. We’re eager to help.
The knee joint is one of the more common culprits of chronic pain – and for good reason. In everyday life, we put a lot of stress on our knees, and this stress can come from a number of different places, including:
The activities we’re doing
The time we spend in flexed positions, or
Carrying too much excess weight for our knees to handle.
In some cases, the stress becomes too much for the various joints, ligaments, bones, and surrounding musculature to handle, and something inevitably gives out. As a result, those in this type of situation can experience varying degrees of knee pain in a number of different areas. These pains can be sharp or dull and are often further accompanied by:
Popping or cracking noises
Injuries often associated with knee pain are:
ACL, MCL, and PCL tears
Muscular and ligament strains and sprains
Acute pain, however, is not always brought on by newer, or even severe, injuries. Sometimes, pain can arise due to flare ups from past injuries – especially if those injuries were improperly treated. Other chronic issues and diseases, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and cartilage degeneration, can also induce pain-related symptoms.
If you fear you may have a serious knee injury, or even want to relieve yourselves of the debilitating and chronic pain that has been wearing you down, please reach out to an expert at Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers who can help.
