What Causes Knee Pain?

Knee pain is caused by a number of different factors, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Overuse and repetitive use
  • Injuries such as falls
  • Underlying medical conditions, such as fibromyalgia

Effective Treatment Options for Knee Pain

At Shepherd Health, we use active release for patients with pain in their knees. We also use a combination of treatment modalities to effectively treat pain. Cold laser therapy is used to treat knee pain on a cellular level. Cold laser therapy helps cells to produce more energy, in turn promoting healing. As light energy is transformed into biochemical energy in the body, the blood supply to damaged cells is increased and the healing process is stimulated. Shockwave therapy is another one of the many treatments we use for knee pain, here at Shephard Health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Runner's knee — also known as iliotibial band or ITB friction syndrome — is a painful condition involving the outside of the knee. The iliotibial band or IT band is the tendon that runs along the outside of the thigh and crosses the knee.

Runner's knee is typically caused by running on uneven surfaces, downhill running, or because of imbalances involving the hips and legs. In addition, runner's knee may be caused by bursitis, which affects the bursae, a gel-filled sac inside the knee which cushions joints during impact. When the bursae becomes inflamed, bursitis may cause painful aching and stiffness in the joint.
