The knees are some of the most important joints in your body. They are responsible for bearing more weight than any other joint. Because they get so much use, the knees are prone to a range of disorders and injuries. For patients of all ages, knee pain can be a very frustrating and debilitating condition.

Knee Pain Causes

The potential causes for knee pain are numerous. Accidental falls, twists, overuse and even sudden movements are common culprits. Degenerative disorders like arthritis, bursitis, gout and tendonitis are also often to blame.

When to Seek Medical Attention

If you are experiencing any type of knee pain that lasts for more than a couple days, it is best to get it checked out. When left untreated and knee rehab is not sought, even minor knee pain can turn into a major problem. If you are experiencing a constant aching sensation, decreased range of motion or difficulty walking, contact Denver Physical Medicine & Rehab immediately to schedule an evaluation.
