The knee surgeons at Tulsa Bone & Joint Associates are highly trained to diagnose and treat your knee problem and aid in your full recovery.
If you live an active lifestyle or play sports, knee injuries are common. During these activities, you add stress on your knees, sometimes making them weak and prone to injury. As you age, osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions can also cause sudden or progressive knee joint pain.
You should see a doctor if you have:
- Sharp or continual pain in the knee joint, even at rest
- Swelling around the knee
- Catching or locking of the joint
- Limited range of motion (cannot extend or bend your lower leg completely)
- Pain associated with movement of the knee joint
- Instability or weakness
If you have joint pain in your knee, you should see your doctor right way. Sometimes, knee pain can be remedied without the need for surgery. But if a condition is left untreated and becomes progressively worse, surgery may be the only alternative.
