Knee Pain Q & A

What symptoms are linked to knee pain?

Knee pain can make it difficult to stand, walk, or move your leg. You might have trouble putting weight on the affected leg, and you may notice a popping or cracking noise. Severe knee pain can limit your mobility and interfere with your job.

At his practice, Dr. Grossinger gets to the root of the problem. He performs in-depth tests to identify the source of your pain. Next, Dr. Grossinger helps you explore your options for nonsurgical relief.

What causes knee pain?

Knee pain often results from a traumatic injury, such as:

  • Falls
  • Sports injuries
  • Workplace injuries
  • Car accidents

During an injury, ligaments and cartilage in your knee can tear. These torn tissues can cause knee pain and swelling. Without treatment, these injuries can worsen.

Some cases of knee pain might be linked to chronic conditions. Arthritis and gout sometimes trigger severe knee pain. These can also cause swelling or redness around your knee. 

How is knee pain treated?

Dr. Grossinger specializes in nonsurgical treatments for knee pain. During your consultation, he identifies the cause of your symptoms. Dr. Grossinger uses state-of-the-art imaging tests to assess your knee function. 

Once he makes a diagnosis, Dr. Grossinger creates a customized treatment plan. Your plan may include lifestyle changes, braces, or physical therapy. Dr. Grossinger can prescribe treatments that avoid the use of opioid pain medication to reduce knee pain and swelling.

If your pain doesn't respond to other treatments, Dr. Grossinger may suggest Regenerative Medicine. These therapies are an ideal option for patients who want to avoid surgery.

Dr. Grossinger's practice offers Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections and Stem-Cell treatment. These work with your body's natural processes to stimulate healing.  These procedures are minimally-invasive and performed in Dr. Steven Grossinger’s office, so no hospital stay is required. Best of all, Regenerative therapy is a safe alternative to surgery.
