Knee pain is a common problem and most people with knee problems experience some level of discomfort. Treating knee pain successfully involves a combination of different treatment options that work together to correct the underlying problem.

When treating knee pain, it is important to know which muscles and ligaments are injured. To do this, the doctor will test your body to locate the injured ligaments, muscles, and tendons. The most common tests include resting your feet on a board to determine nerve compression, stretching the tendons, and applying direct pressure to them. You may also be asked to demonstrate these movements on a video or a series of exercises in your home. What cause the knee injuries to get worsen? When the bones, cartilage, and ligaments are inflamed, they become rigid. As they become rigid, the joints will begin to rub against each other. This can lead to knee pain, decreased flexibility, weakness, and swelling around the joints. In addition, there is decreased blood flow to the bones, decreased oxygenation to the tissues, and a loss of energy. Orthopedic specialists recommend a variety of treatment for patients who suffer from knee pain caused by injuries, strains, bruises, sprains, and sports injuries. The first step is to rest the injured area and apply topical ice to reduce swelling. Patients may be given pain medication, but in some cases, additional therapy may be necessary to address the underlying problem. The most common therapies include manual therapy, ultrasound, stretching, physical therapy, and deep heat therapy. Manual therapy relieves joint stiffness and range of motion problems while ultrasound, stretching, and physical therapy aids the healing process. Deep heat therapy improves circulation to the injured area and encourages increased muscle strength and mobility. 2/3

Doctors often prefer to use over-the-counter pain medications and treatments instead of surgery for patients with moderate to severe knee pain. If pain medications do not help, your doctor may recommend physical therapy, steroid injections, or surgery. Some doctors even believe that sleep apnea should be treated using CPAP machines rather than an OTC pain reliever. This type of treatment is typically recommended for patients who have sleep apnea or a diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or sleep apnea, along with other conditions that are thought to cause chronic knee pain.
