Don’t Let Knee Pain Prevent you from Living LIFE to the Fullest!

Knee pain is a widespread complaint for many people.  Who would think a small joint like the knee could produce such debilitating pain?  There are several factors that can cause knee pain such as arthritis, runner’s knee, bursitis, tendinitis, ligament sprains and tears, meniscus tears, bone fractures, and gout.

Healthy Knees

A healthy knee joint bends easily.  Cartilage, a smooth tissue, covers the ends of the thighbone and shinbone and the underside of the kneecap.  Healthy cartilage absorbs stress and allows the bones to glide freely over each other.  Joint fluid lubricates the cartilage surfaces, making movement even easier.

A Problem Knee

A problem knee is stiff or painful.  Cartilage cracks or wears away due to usage, inflammation, or injury.  Worn, roughened cartilage no longer allows the joint to glide freely, so it feels stiff.  As more cartilage wears away, exposed bones rub together when the knee bends causing pain.  With time, bone surfaces also become rough, making the pain much worse.

Understanding Knee Replacement

A knee prosthesis lets your knee bend easily again.  The roughened ends of the thighbone and shinbone and the underside of the kneecap are replaced with metal and strong plastic components.  With new smooth surfaces, the bones can once again glide freely.  A knee prosthesis does have limitations, but it can help you walk and move with greater comfort.

At Blue Ridge Orthopaedic and Spine Center, we recognize that painful joints can interfere with your sleep, limit daily mobility, or keep you from participating in activities that you love.  If managing your joint pain is no longer working, our team of joint replacement specialists can help by replacing all or part of your problem joint.  Please contact our joint specialists7 @ 540.347.9220 (Warrenton location) or 703.743.2814 (Gainesville location) to schedule an appointment and please visit our website @ www.broava.com for more information on the comprehensive services we offer.
