When to See a Knee Pain Doctor Monmouth County NJ?
Unfortunately, knee pain is a common problem for many Americans of all ages. While younger people tend to experience knee pain after an injury, knee pain can also be caused by a number of medical conditions, obesity and arthritis.
If you’re experiencing acute or chronic knee pain, you may need to see a knee specialist for treatment.
When to See a Knee Specialist
Immediately after suffering a knee injury, you may experience some common symptoms in addition to knee pain. These signs and symptoms include:
- Popping noise and/or feeling
- Crunching noises
- Swelling, redness and warmth to the touch
- Stiffness and/or inability to fully straighten the knee
- Weakness and/or instability
When to See a Knee Doctor
Not all knee pain requires medical treatment – most minor tweaks, sprains and injuries can be treated at home with rest, ice and elevation.
