Our knee doctors at Lewiston Orthopedics are recognized experts in the diagnosis and treatment of knee injuries and conditions.
Pain in the knee can be the result of a condition that has developed over time or from overuse like osteoarthritis, arthritis, and runner’s knee, or from the occurrence of a recent sports injury, such as a meniscal tear or dislocated kneecap.
In some circumstances, and if not identified early on, conditions such as knee arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, making knee surgery, such as knee replacement, total knee arthroplasty, or knee arthroscopy, possible options to relieving your knee pain.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of knee pain, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible before your knee injury or condition worsens.
A popping or snapping noise in or around the knee
Feel like your knee gave out while walking, running, jumping, or turning
Have severe joint pain, pain in the knee, pain in the kneecap, or pain behind the knee
Cannot bend or move the knee
Begin limping or are unable to walk comfortably
Have swelling of the knee, joint, or calf area
At Lewiston Orthopedics, we understand that pain in the knee can make everyday activities difficult.
