Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Knee pain can be a symptom of many conditions. Sudden pain often results from an injury or accident. But knee pain can also be a sign of a chronic health condition like arthritis. 

To determine what's causing your knee pain, your provider considers your other symptoms. Imaging tests can also reveal injuries or inflammation in the knee. These tests help your provider make an accurate diagnosis.

At Restoration Osteopathic Medicine, you receive expert diagnostic care. The providers are fully-trained doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs). They get to the root of your pain and develop a treatment plan that provides lasting relief. 

How is knee pain treated?

If your knees have hurt for a long time, you've probably tried a variety of treatments. But conventional remedies often fail to address the root cause of your pain.

Many doctors prescribe medication for patients with knee pain. But some painkillers can cause side effects or dependency. They also do nothing to heal underlying injuries or chronic inflammation — the source of your pain. 

Restoration Osteopathic Medicine uses a different approach. Rather than masking symptoms, their evidence-based treatments repair underlying damage. Healing the original injury or reducing inflammation provides lasting relief. 

Drug-free and nonsurgical treatments are also available. During your consultation, your provider helps you select the right therapeutic approach. If you want to avoid medication or surgery, your provider can suggest alternate treatments.

How can osteopathic medicine resolve my knee pain?

At Restoration Osteopathic Medicine, you can receive a variety of unique treatments. Your provider may suggest an osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), an effective treatment for knee pain.

OMT uses hands-on therapy to maneuver tissues and joints into the correct position. This treatment can:

  • Resolve structural abnormalities
  • Fix joint misalignments
  • Improve blood flow
  • Relieve joint tension

OMT is often used alongside conventional treatments like pain medication. But it's also an excellent option for patients who prefer to avoid prescription drugs. OMT can provide safe, long-lasting knee pain relief.

The providers at Restoration Osteopathic Medicine work with other care providers to help you meet your health goals. If you need a referral to a surgeon or other specialist, your provider guides you through this process.
