Knee pain is one of the most common reasons people visit Sarasota Orthopedic Associates. The knee is a complex joint, and a knee injury can seriously impact a person's quality of life. Luckily, many of the most common knee problems are treatable.
Causes of Knee Pain
There are many causes of knee pain, including injury and disease. The most common injuries to the knee tend to be damage to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the meniscus. The most widespread disease affecting the knee is arthritis, which causes the gradual wearing away of cartilage. Some knee problems can be treated without surgery, but others may require arthroscopy or arthroplasty. We offer specialized sports medicine treatment for knee injuries encountered during athletic activity.

Regardless of the extent of the problem, Sarasota Orthopedic Associates provides exceptional treatment. Any patient with knee pain can turn to our orthopedic specialists, from a senior with arthritis to an athlete injured on the field.

Because of the complexity of most knee injuries, surgery and other treatment options are often accompanied by periods of physical therapy and rehab.
