Knee pain caused by a knee injury or other knee condition can be not only very painful but disabling if left untreated for a long period of time. The knee is made up of multiple parts that can be affected in a knee injury or knee condition including cartilage, bones, tendons, fluid and ligaments.

The group of Knee Pain Doctors at The Spine & Rehab Group in New Jersey concentrates on the non-surgical treatment of knee pain and knee injuries. Our Board Certified Doctors work together with a team of experts including highly trained and skilled Physical Therapists for knee pain, Certified Acupuncturists and Massage Therapists.

The severity of your knee condition depends on how the injury occurred. Often, knee injuries are seen in athletes or people who participate regularly in sports activities. Other knee pain can arise from injuries due to falls and slips. In addition to an injury, there are medical conditions that affect the knees and require non-surgical intervention.


Common Conditions and Injuries of the Knee

Meniscus Tear

Meniscus tears are one of the most common knee injuries and sports injuries that cause knee pain, especially in athletes. A meniscus tear can be the result of a forceful twisting or blow to the knee which causes knee pain, swelling and pain when moving. Meniscus tears are also referred to as torn knee cartilage.

Knee Ligament Injuries

The knee is made up 4 ligaments, ACL, MCL, LCL and PCL. These ligaments are parts of the knee that allow for stability and movement of the knee. ACL and MCL injuries such as sprains or tears are more common and often the result of a sports injury. Treatment for knee ligament injuries such as ACL or MCL tears can be successful without surgery.

Patellar Tendonitis

Tendonitis of the knee, also known as Jumper’s Knee, occurs due to inflammation, stress or injury of the patellar tendon in the knee. Repetitive motions that involve straightening of the knee, especially jumping, can lead to knee pain and knee stiffness that may be diagnosed as Patellar Tendonitis.

Runner's Knee

Runner’s Knee is a knee condition that causes knee pain and difficulty bending the knee, most commonly in runners but also in bicyclists and other athletes. In Runner’s knee, the knee pain most commonly experienced is around the kneecap and can be exacerbated when bending the knee.

Knee Bursitis

Knee Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursae in your knee, which are sacs that allow cushioning of the knee joints to protect them from irritation. Symptoms of Knee Bursitis commonly are knee pain, swelling of the knee and knee tenderness. Knee Bursitis may develop due to strain on the knee, a sports injury or Arthritis.

Arthritis of the Knee

Arthritis of the knee causes inflammation of the joints in the knee, which ultimately leads to knee pain and limited mobility. Osteoarthritis of the knee, when knee cartilage wears away, is the most common type of arthritis to affect the knee joints. Non-surgical treatments are available to make knee pain manageable and improve mobility.
