Who can benefit from treatment for knee pain?
Orthopedic treatment, both surgical and nonsurgical, can alleviate a variety of conditions leading to knee pain, including arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or post-traumatic arthritis), degenerative joint disease, leg deformity, or injury to the knee joint. Osteoarthritis is one of the most common causes of knee pain, which occurs when the cushioning cartilage between the bones of the knee joint wears away and allows the bones to rub against each other.
Many of these conditions can be managed with nonsurgical treatments including medications, physical therapy, and walking supports. An orthopedic specialist can help you determine if surgical treatment is necessary. He or she will recommend one of two procedures: total knee replacement surgery or arthroscopic knee replacement surgery. This recommendation will be made based on the severity of the damage to your knee.
