Knee Conditions & Treatments
The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. The knee joins the thigh bone (femur) to the shin bone (tibia). The smaller bone that runs alongside the tibia (fibula) and the kneecap (patella) are the other bones that make up the knee joint. Muscles power the knee and leg for movement.
All About the
Common Knee Conditions
When should you see a
The first thing that can happen after an acute injury is swelling around the site of the injury. When the knee is injured, it can swell as a result of inflammation or possibly bleeding into the knee joint. If the knee swells without an acute injury, it is also wise to consult your doctor.
Reduced range of motion can be related to swelling in the knee, as well as other joint injuries. If you have limited range of motion that does not begin to improve within a few days, you should contact your doctor. If there is knee instability, you should also consult your doctor.
Please consult a knee specialist if knee pain is severe or does not resolve satisfactorily after an injury. If there is persistent pain without an injury, it will also be beneficial to seek a specialist’s advice.
At our clinic, we generally try to explore non-surgical treatment such as activities modification, physiotherapy and orthotics before recommending invasive intervention options.
