Pain Mamagement & Causes of Knee Pain

Knee pain can stem from a variety of factors, including:

Injuries and Trauma

Knee injuries, such as ligament tears (ACL, MCL, or meniscus), fractures, dislocations, or strains, can lead to acute knee pain and instability.


Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or post-traumatic arthritis can cause chronic knee pain, stiffness, and inflammation due to cartilage degeneration or autoimmune responses.

Overuse and Repetitive Stress

Activities involving repetitive movements or prolonged stress on the knee joint, such as running or jumping, can cause chronic knee pain due to conditions like patellofemoral pain syndrome or iliotibial band syndrome.


Inflammation of the tendons, such as patellar tendonitis (jumper’s knee) or quadriceps tendonitis, can result in localized knee pain and difficulty with activities requiring knee movement.


Knee Pain Types of Diagnoses and Conditions

At Kennedy Health, we diagnose and treat various knee pain conditions, including:



This degenerative joint disease occurs when the protective cartilage in the knee joint gradually wears down, leading to chronic knee pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.


Meniscal Tears

Tears in the meniscus, the C-shaped cartilage discs within the knee joint, can cause sharp knee pain, swelling, and restricted movement.


Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the lining of the knee joint, causing chronic inflammation, pain, swelling, and potential joint deformity.


Ligament Tears

Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), or other knee ligaments can result in knee instability, pain, and difficulty with weight-bearing activities.

Pain Management Symptoms Associated with Knee Pain

Knee pain can present various symptoms, including:

Pain and Discomfort

Persistent or intermittent knee pain, ranging from dull aches to sharp, stabbing sensations, often worsened with activity or weight-bearing.

Limited Range of Motion

Difficulty fully straightening or bending the knee, resulting in reduced flexibility and restricted movement.

Swelling and Inflammation

Joint swelling, warmth, and redness due to inflammation within the knee joint.

Instability or Weakness

Feeling of the knee “giving way,” instability, or weakness when standing or moving, especially in cases of ligament injuries.

Pain Management Treatment Options

At Kennedy Health, we offer a range of treatment options to effectively manage knee pain:

Medication Management

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), pain medications, corticosteroids, or disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) may be prescribed to manage pain, reduce inflammation, and slow disease progression.

Physical Therapy

Our experienced physical therapists design personalized exercise programs to improve knee strength, flexibility, and stability, reducing pain and enhancing mobility.

Assistive Devices

The use of knee braces, orthotics, or crutches can help support the knee joint, reduce pain, and improve mobility.


Intra-articular injections, such as corticosteroids or hyaluronic acid, may be recommended to provide localized pain relief, reduce inflammation, and improve joint function.

Lifestyle Modifications

Our medical professionals provide guidance on weight management, low-impact exercises, proper footwear, and techniques to reduce stress on the knee joint.

Surgical Intervention

In severe cases where conservative treatments are ineffective, surgical options, such as arthroscopy, ligament reconstruction, or joint replacement, may be considered to alleviate pain, repair damaged structures, and restore knee function.

Our medical professionals will conduct a thorough evaluation, including a review of your medical history and diagnostic tests (such as X-rays or MRI), to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific type and severity of knee pain. We prioritize personalized care and work closely with you to develop a comprehensive approach to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
