There are many causes of knee pain and your physical therapist will base your Bergen County knee pain treatment on the source of the discomfort. It could be caused by a tear in the ligaments or meniscus. In addition, knee osteoarthritis is a very common cause of knee pain. It is a painful disease of the knee joint, in which both the bone and the elastic part of the joint called cartilage may break down. Nearly 16-20 million Americans have osteoarthritis with people over age 65 making up half that number. There are many risk factors and causes of knee OA. Aging is a contributing factor and so is excess weight and infections or diseases that affect knee joints. The symptoms of knee OA include knee pain while walking or running. You may also notice stiffness, especially early in the morning, swelling of the joint, and weakness. You may even hear a grinding sound when you bend your knee. Tests of the blood and fluid around the knees may be done to look for signs of inflammation. X-rays are used to show how far the disease has progressed.
