If you are an active person, you know that sometimes your body doesn’t work the way you want it too. As we get older, our joints and muscles fight us harder. Aches and pains are just part of the game of life. But, sometimes, the pain that we feel is more than just a normal everyday ache and pain. Something as easy as going up or down the stairs can cause your knee to give out to immense pain.
In order for your knee to work correctly, the muscle tendons and the Bursas (fluid filled sac) must glide smoothly across each other. When they don’t you’re going to experience pain that you don’t want.
When you start feeling intense pain in your knee(s), it is important to go to the doctor as soon as you can so that you can get it looked at. In most cases, you will need to get your knee x-rayed or get an MRI. In extreme cases, your physician may need to do nerve and muscle testing on your knee.
We know that going to the doctor can be scary. You never know what the physician will say. You are terrified that surgery will be the only option which will be expensive and you just don’t have that kind of money. We at Conquest MD want to tell you that surgery is not always the answer. If you come to see us early enough we can try our knee injections which could have you back to normal in no time! Give us a call to schedule an appointment today!
