Knee Pain Q & A

What is knee pain?

Knee pain is an uncomfortable feeling that develops because of an injury, disease, or age-related wear. It's a common problem that can sideline you from training or even enjoying your favorite everyday activities. 

See the Synergy Release Sports team at the first sign of ongoing or extreme knee pain to begin the natural recovery process and reduce your risk of long-term complications. 

What does knee pain feel like?

Knee pain may present as:

  • Weakness
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Limited mobility
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Warmth
  • Dull aching
  • Sharp pain

The discomfort is mild, moderate, or severe and may reduce your ability to move around — even when you're simply trying to walk. 

What can cause knee pain?

Numerous factors can contribute to knee pain. Examples include Osgood-Schlatter disease, patellar tendonitis, meniscus Injury, Iliotibial band syndrome, or runner’s knee. You might develop anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, medial cruciate ligament (MCL) injuries, fractures, patellofemoral syndrome, or a Baker’s cyst. 

 

Knee instability, arthritis, osteoporosis, and post-surgery issues can also contribute to knee discomfort. Risk factors include carrying excess weight, poor nutrition, lack of strength and flexibility, playing sports, and improper training. 

How does my provider find the cause of knee pain?

To determine the cause of knee pain, the Synergy Release Sports team discusses your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle. They complete a physical exam and may order blood tests, joint fluid tests, and imaging procedures before tailoring your knee pain treatment plan.
