Knee Pain

At Injury Doctors NYC, we specialize in providing comprehensive care for individuals suffering from knee pain. Our team of skilled medical professionals is committed to accurately diagnosing the underlying cause of your discomfort and implementing personalized treatment plans to effectively alleviate your symptoms. Below, we outline the common causes, diagnosis, and treatment options for knee pain:

Common Causes of Knee Pain:

Osteoarthritis: A degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of cartilage in the knee joint, resulting in pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility, particularly with weight-bearing activities.

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (Runner's Knee): A common condition characterized by pain around or behind the kneecap, often aggravated by activities such as running, squatting, or climbing stairs.

Meniscus Tears: Tears or damage to the meniscus, the rubbery cartilage discs that cushion the knee joint, commonly caused by sudden twisting or repetitive stress, resulting in pain, swelling, and limited range of motion.

Ligament Injuries: Injuries to the knee ligaments, such as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), or lateral collateral ligament (LCL), often resulting from sports-related trauma or sudden pivoting motions, leading to instability, swelling, and pain.

Tendonitis: Inflammation of the tendons surrounding the knee joint, such as the patellar tendon (patellar tendonitis) or quadriceps tendon, typically due to overuse, repetitive strain, or muscle imbalances, resulting in pain, stiffness, and weakness.


When you visit Injury Doctors NYC for knee pain evaluation, our experienced physicians will conduct a thorough assessment, which may include:

Medical History Review: Gathering information about your symptoms, medical history, previous injuries, and activity level.

Physical Examination: Assessing the alignment, stability, range of motion, and strength of the knee joint, as well as identifying areas of tenderness or swelling.

Imaging Studies: Utilizing X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans to visualize the bones, joints, and soft tissues of the knee, helping to identify structural abnormalities, fractures, or signs of arthritis.

Treatment Options:

Based on the diagnosis, our team will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. Treatment options may include:

Rest and Activity Modification: Temporarily avoiding activities that exacerbate knee pain and modifying movement patterns to reduce strain on the affected joint.

Physical Therapy: Engaging in targeted exercises and stretches to strengthen the muscles surrounding the knee joint, improve flexibility, and enhance stability and mobility.

Medications: Prescribing pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs, or corticosteroid injections to alleviate discomfort, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.

Bracing or Splinting: Using supportive braces or splints to stabilize the knee joint, offload pressure, and provide additional support during physical activity.

Minimally Invasive Procedures: Performing procedures such as corticosteroid injections, viscosupplementation, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to target inflammation, alleviate pain, and promote tissue healing.

Surgery: In severe cases or when conservative treatments fail to provide relief, surgical intervention may be necessary to repair damaged tissues, reconstruct ligaments, remove loose bodies, or replace the knee joint.

At Injury Doctors NYC, our primary goal is to help you find relief from knee pain and regain your mobility and function. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward a pain-free future.
