Knee Pain

Knee Pain

Knee Pain in SouthlakeWhen you have pain in the area of the knee, it can be a very troubling problem. Not only does it cause discomfort, it can also limit us in many ways as well. The fact of the matter is that knee pain is not associated with one specific problem and it can occur at any age. It is also a difficulty that can come on suddenly, without warning or it may continue to build from a minor problem until it severely affects your quality of life. If you suffer from this type of difficulty, you can trust the professionals at Better Faster Urgent Care to provide you with the care you need.

One of the most common reasons why this type of pain may be a problem is if you have arthritis. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, but the one that most commonly affects the knee is known as osteoarthritis. This is also sometimes known as wear and tear arthritis because it is associated with a breakdown or damage to the cartilage of the knee. This type of pain can occur as you get older but it can also be a problem for those that have damage to the cartilage because of injury.

Pain that occurs behind the knee may also be associated with arthritis but it can also be a baker’s cyst as well. If the pain is on the inside or the outside of the knee, it could be a sign of ligament or meniscus damage or tearing. Pain above the knee may be an issue with the quadriceps tendon and if you have pain below the knee, it could be a symptom of Osgood-Schlatter disease. Since there are so many issues that could be behind the pain you are experiencing, it is important to get the competent medical care that you need.
