Knee Pain Q & A

What is knee pain?

Your knee joint, located where your thigh bone meets your lower leg bone, is made up of bones, tendons, muscles, ligaments, and cartilage. Knee pain might develop from a sports or job-related injury, arthritis, or normal wear-and-tear associated with aging. It may appear suddenly or develop gradually over time. 

If you experience discomfort at or near your knee, Dr. Osborne and his team offer numerous integrative medicine solutions that ease pain and accelerate healing. Treatment at Coastal Healthcare Partners is noninvasive, without surgery, addictive pain medicines, or downtime.

What are the symptoms of knee pain?

Knee pain presents as numerous symptoms, including:

  • Sharp, stabbing pain
  • Dull, aching pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Popping or crunching noises
  • Knee instability
  • Warmth or redness
  • Limited range of motion
  • Inability to fully straighten your knee
  • Inability to bear weight on your knee

The symptoms you experience vary based on the type and severity of your injury. To diagnose the cause of your pain, Dr. Osborne reviews your medical history, examines your knee, and may use blood or imaging tests.

How is knee pain treated?

Your personalized knee pain treatment plan might include:
