Knee Pain Q & A

Zanesville Medical Center

What causes knee pain?

You can develop knee pain for a variety of different reasons, but in many cases, it's due to an injury or a stress fracture. Other factors that might contribute to knee pain are:

Excess weight

Being overweight puts added pressure on your joints, which impacts the strength and integrity of your knees.

Muscle weakness

Lack of physical activity can lead to weak knee muscles or inflexibility in your knee joints. Over time, this can lead to pain during everyday activities.

Sports

Certain sports or high-impact activities put extreme stress on your knees, like running, basketball, cycling, or skiing.

Arthritis

Knee pain can also develop if you have arthritis, which is characterized by inflammation and tenderness in the joints.

Do I need knee surgery?

It’s perfectly reasonable to want to avoid knee surgery at all costs, as it can be expensive, painful, and often requires an extended recovery period. Not all patients need knee surgery, either, but they may not be aware of their other options.

At Zanesville Medical Center, patients have the option of several different non-surgical knee treatment programs. The team of physicians and specialists can perform a comprehensive evaluation of your condition to determine if you are a good candidate for a non-surgical knee treatment program.

Many patients can put off knee surgery for several years or avoid it entirely. Other individuals who aren't candidates for surgery can obtain relief through one of the Zanesville Medical Center programs, which can be repeated every six months, if necessary.

How is knee pain treated?

Zanesville Medical Center is the only local center to offer the most advanced and comprehensive non-surgical solution to knee pain from arthritis. The “Knee Surgery Prevention Program” is a safe, FDA-approved, painless, and effective treatment for conditions like osteoarthritis of the knee.

Your Zanesville doctor treats your knee with an all-natural, jelly-like material called HYALGAN®, which provides cushioning and lubrication to the knee. Unlike steroids, this approach offers faster results and won’t contribute to the breakdown of more knee cartilage.

Your physician uses live motion X-ray guidance to make sure the injections are delivered in exactly the right spot. That translates to less pain and a faster return to your routine.

You also undergo a results-oriented therapeutic knee rehabilitation program to improve your results. Most patients report a drastic improvement in their symptoms and can enjoy all their favorite activities again.
