We are seeing an epidemic of patients presenting with knee arthritis from trauma associated with active lifestyles. As such, while having some of the best knee specialists Los Angeles has to offer, few doctors are more qualified to integrate the latest orthopedic advancements to help you return to the activities you enjoy.
What are the Symptoms of Knee Pain?
The symptoms associated with knee pain will vary depending on the underlying cause. For example, along with general discomfort around the joint, you may also experience:
- Popping and clicking noises
- An inability to straighten your knee
To determine what specifically is causing your knee pain, we will perform a complete physical examination to understand your lifestyle and what may have triggered the pain. We’ll assess overall biomechanics along with the entire knee to access for pain, swelling, range of motion, stability/laxity, and functional capacity.
Although our physical examination will give us an idea of what’s causing your pain, we’ll often want to confirm our diagnosis with an imaging test. In many cases, this may be a hands-on diagnostic ultrasound to create a live image of your knee to specifically evaluate the soft tissues, tendons, ligaments, and meniscus and to look for joint swelling/bursitis. If a more extensive injury is present involving bone, cartilage or meniscus is suspected, we may promptly obtain a state-of-the-art 3 Tesla MRI.
INNOVATIVE TREATMENTS FOR YOUR KNEE PAIN
Quite often other doctors focus on temporary pain-relief measures or invasive surgery. As some of the best physiatrists and providers of relief for knee pain Los Angeles has to offer, we believe in a more innovative way to naturally restore function and treat knee pain. We know that our patients want long-lasting relief and they want to be off the sidelines as quickly as possible – and that’s exactly what we strive to deliver. As such, the Orthohealing Center is primarily focused on minimally invasive alternative procedures that can potentially improve your symptoms and repair the damaged structure in your knee without a lengthy healing period.
