Knee Pain Q&A

Why do I have knee pain?


If you have knee pain, you’re not alone. About one-quarter of adults experience knee pain in their lives, and there are many different causes. The main categories are: 




Many injuries involve the knees, including sprained ligaments, torn tendons and menisci, fractures, and joint dislocations.


Athletes like runners and jumpers are prone to patellofemoral pain syndrome, a condition that causes pain in the front part of the knee.


Medical conditions


The most common cause of knee pain is osteoarthritis, which causes the cartilage (the “coating” over your bones) to crumble. Without that cartilage, the ends of your bones can grind together, causing pain. 


Gout is another type of knee arthritis. It causes tiny crystals, made of uric acid, to build up in your joint. This can cause severe knee pain and movement issues. 


Knee infections are another possible cause of knee pain. Many medical conditions in the knee affect older people, but they can occur at any time. 


Some people who have knee pain experience other types of pain at the same time, such as back pain or pain that travels down one leg, known as sciatica. 


My knee only hurts sometimes. Do I need treatment for knee pain?


Sporadic knee pain usually indicates an underlying problem in your knee. If you don’t find the cause of the pain and get treatment, your condition can progress until your knee pain is constant. 


Ignoring knee pain often also leads to new problems, such as:

  • Knee stiffness
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Clicking feeling when you move your knee 
  • Knee swelling
  • Knee weakness
  • Difficulty bearing weight



If you treat knee pain right away, you can avoid progressive damage and major surgery (like joint replacement) later. 


What are the latest treatments for knee pain?


NeuroSpinal Institute of Broward uses leading-edge therapies to treat knee pain. 


They often combine restorative medicine and functional medicine. The former uses biological substances like healing cells and growth factors from your own blood or bone marrow, and the latter helps you rebuild your physical function and whole-person health. 


Some of the different restorative and functional therapies are:

  • ESCAPE-pain protocol: Evidence-based group rehabilitation program
  • Normatec compression therapy
  • Cryotherapy
  • Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections 
  • Alternative therapies like cellular injections
  • Bracing with durable medical equipment (DME)

Many other innovative treatments are available to relieve your knee pain and promote healing, like Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC).
