Arthritis in the Knees

Joint Pain Treatment in Albuquerque, NM

The knee is a complex joint where the major bones of the leg—the femur and the tibia—are connected by several tendons and ligaments in a way that allows significant bending. When any of the bones or connective tissues are damaged or inflamed, you feel it with every step, sometimes even at rest.

The doctors at Orthopaedic Bone & Joint Specialists, PA can help you find relief for your knee joint pain, whether you suffer from arthritis or require other sports medicine treatment.

Understanding Arthritis in the Knee

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition in which the tissues of the knee joint are continually inflamed. Inflammation may be constant or it may subside and be aggravated by sudden and/or strenuous movement.

Arthritis in the knee may be a result of age, or it may result from a sports injury that was not properly treated or healed incorrectly.

Treatment for arthritis in the knee ranges from:

  • Exercises to strengthen the joint
  • Nutritional supplementation to counter systemic inflammation
  • Pain medication
  • Total knee replacement
  • Unicompartmental knee replacement

The sooner treatment is sought for knee joint pain, the more likely non- or mildly invasive methods will be successful. If arthritis is allowed to worsen, orthopaedic surgery may become the best or only option for complete knee joint pain relief.
