The knee is a very complex joint, and when injured, it can seriously impact a person's quality of life. Knee pain is one of the most common reasons people visit orthopedists. Difficulty standing up and walking can greatly diminish a person's sense of independence, and 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. We offer specialized sports medicine treatment for knee injuries resulting from athletic activity. 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.

Treating Knee Pain

Regardless of the extent of the problem, Sarasota Orthopedic Associates provides exceptional treatment. Any patient with knee pain, from a senior with arthritis to an athlete injured on the field, can turn to our orthopedic specialists. Our facility empowers experienced physicians with the advanced tools required for the best available treatment. Our team will strive to both restore function and minimize pain as much as possible.

Because the knee is such a complex and important joint, surgery and other treatment options are often accompanied by periods of physical therapy and rehab. While treatment options are being evaluated, and while the body is recovering from injuries, we're able to offer help with pain management. By browsing our website, you can learn more about our team of physicians and related services that we offer. You can also prepare for a visit by exploring our patient resource center.
