General Knee Pain

General Knee Pain Your knees support most of the weight of your body, and as a result they are susceptible to injury and arthritis. Your knees play a major role in everyday activities, such as walking, and physically demanding activities, such as sports. Because your knees are so important, knee pain should be taken seriously and treated as soon as possible.

WHAT CAUSES GENERAL KNEE PAIN?

Knee pain can be caused by a number of different conditions. These include:

These conditions can be caused by overuse, force of impact, age, poor kneecap alignment, or overextension.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT?

Before treating knee pain, it's important to discover the cause of the condition. Seek advice from a medical professional before beginning treatment for knee pain.

One of the most common treatments for knee pain is the RICE method.
Rest - avoid activities that aggravate the knee and take frequent breaks
Ice - cold therapy can help reduce the pain and reduce swelling
Compression - compression can also help reduce swelling and promote healing
Elevation - elevation helps reduce swelling

One of the most simple ways to help reduce knee issues is by losing weight. This helps reduce the load and pressure on your knees.

Wearing knee sleeves or knee braces can also provide support for your knees to alleviate knee pain as you walk and perform everyday activities. Knee sleeves provide compression as you heal, and knee braces can help stabilize the knee as you move around.

To help relieve mild pain, you can also take mild anti-inflammatory pain relievers such as ibuprofen or aspirin.
