Some knee pain may go away on its own, but others may need the help of an experienced doctor. If you have the following symptoms, we recommend that you schedule a consultation with us, so that we can properly diagnose your condition and create a personalized treatment plan that can work for you.
You Feel Something Moving in Your Knee
Sometimes, small pieces of cartilage or bone become loose and float around in the joint.
If you have these loose bodies in your knee you may experience knee pain, locking of the knee, or the sensation of something moving in the knee.
You Hear a Snap, Crackle or Pop
Cracking and popping noises in the knee joint are common and usually don’t indicate a serious problem.
However, if you are also experiencing pain or swelling, it could be a sign of something more serious.
You Have Pain When Climbing Stairs
Pain when walking up steps is the first weight-bearing task in which people with osteoarthritis notice pain.
So the pain that’s telling you to take the elevator may be an early warning sign of degenerative joint disease.
