If pain in one or both of your knees has become unmanageable with the use of over-the-counter pain medications, and disrupts your normal daily routine, it may be time to contact your doctor. Debilitating knee pain is not normal, and the good news is that you don’t have to live with it! At Bellevue Bone & Joint Physicians, our physical therapy providers and orthopedic surgeons in Bellevue help patients with knee pain on a daily basis.
One of the most common causes of chronic knee pain is damage from osteoarthritis. When osteoarthritis affects the knee, it can cause a breakdown of cartilage resulting in bone-on-bone friction in the joint, causing the sufferer great pain and limited motion in the joint. Several treatment options for osteoarthritis of the knee are available at BBJP, including visco-supplementation. This advanced treatment option lubricates and cushions the knee joint, allowing the knee to move more freely and relieving pain.
For more information regarding physical therapy, orthopedic surgery, visco-supplementation, and more in the Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah and Seattle areas, contact Bellevue Bone & Joint Physicians today. We look forward to helping you!
