What Patients Say About Our Littleton Knee Pain Treatments

What is Knee Pain?

Your knees are incredibly strong, but they’re also under constant pressure. Everyday activities, old injuries, or even unexplained causes can lead to pain in your knee joint.
This pain isn’t just uncomfortable it can create a dangerous cycle of inflammation, wear and tear, and ultimately, more damage. That’s why it’s crucial to go beyond just treating the pain.
To break this cycle and start healing, the first step is pinpointing the exact cause of your knee problems. A thorough evaluation can create a clear picture of what’s happening inside your knee and guide the way toward lasting relief.

Common Causes of Knee Pain

There are many potential factors that cause knee pain. A solid diagnosis is essential to ensure that you get the most appropriate & effective care for your condition.
  • Acute Knee Injury: If you’re regularly active, your knee is constantly working as you go forward, backward, as well as side-to-side. It also is engaged when you stop, turn, rotate, and jump. Any of these movements can jar the joint and cause an injury. The most common acute knee injuries:
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear
  • Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tear
  • Torn Meniscus
  • Bursitis
  • Dislocation
  • Fracture
  • Degeneration: this is arthritis from wear-and-tear, also known as osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis in its many different forms, can cause a lot of knee pain as your joint is robbed of lubrication and cushion and your cartilage breaks down, causing painful and continual swelling. At Ultimate Health we call this ‘Creaky Knee Syndrome’ and we are knee pain treatment specialists in Littleton and Southwest Denver, CO.
  • Ligament Tears: ligaments attach bones to bones and therefore when torn can cause significant joint instability. This instability leads to further wear and tear, or osteoarthritis, when it becomes chronic.
  • Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) sprain or injury The MCL is a ligament tear on the inside of the knee caused by twisting motion or direct impact.
  • Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL) sprain or injury The LCL is a ligament tear on the outside of the knee also caused by twisting motion or direct impact.
  • Meniscal (Cartilage) Tears – The medial and lateral meniscus act as two cushions between the two big bones of your knee joint. Damage or a torn meniscus can be caused by contact sports. You can also suffer from a torn meniscus as a part of chronic knee arthritis.
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament injuries (ACL) – A rapid change in direction or an improper landing on a jump may cause ACL tears. This is the most common sports injury.
  • Posterior Cruciate Ligament injuries (PCL) – A blow to the front of the knee while the knee is bent may cause PCL tears. This injury can be seen in motor vehicle accidents.
  • Knee Bursitis – The bursa provides cushioning to your knee joint. The bursa can fill with fluid and become swollen from repetitive movements, causing redness and sensitivity. It can also be damaged from trauma associated with a fall, or with excessive time kneeling.
  • Knee Tendonitis – The tendons in your knee can become damaged from overuse. “Patellar tendonitis” is the most common. This will cause pain along the front of your knee.

FAQs About Knee Pain

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY KNEE PAIN IS SERIOUS?
Pain in or around the knee may indicate a condition affecting the knee joint itself or the soft tissue around the knee. Serious problems may exist if you have symptoms such as swelling, joint stiffness, cracking joints, inability to bear weight on your knee (or it feels unstable), and/or the inability to fully extend or flex your knee.
WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON REASON FOR KNEE PAIN?
According to the latest from John Hopkins Medicine, the most common causes of knee pain today are related to aging (osteoarthritis), injury/accident, or repeated stress on the knee. Common knee problems include sprained or strained ligaments, cartilage tears, tendonitis, and arthritis.
HOW LONG UNTIL MY KNEE PAIN GOES AWAY?
If you are a candidate for the Ultimate Health Knee Rejuvenation Protocol, most patients feel relief beginning after the first few treatments. After the first stage of your program, the majority of patients feel dramatic relief and have returned to regular activities, including stairs, walking/jogging, and more natural knee motions.
DOES ULTIMATE HEALTH'S PROTOCOL INCLUDE KNEE BURSITIS TREATMENT?
The short answer if our treatment affects knee bursitis is: yes!
Knee bursitis is a condition that occurs when the small, fluid-filled sacs called bursae become inflamed. These sacs act as cushions between the knee bones, tendons, and muscles around the knee joint, helping to reduce friction during movement. Specifically in the knee, several bursae aid in smooth joint motion, but when one or more of these sacs become irritated or inflamed, it can lead to discomfort, swelling, and limited mobility. Factors contributing to knee bursitis may include repetitive stress, direct trauma to the knee joint, or an underlying condition like knee arthritis or gout. Bursitis can affect anyone but is more common among athletes, individuals who engage in repetitive kneeling, and those with a history of joint issues.
Conservative approaches to treat bursitis and the affected joint aim to reduce the inflamed bursa, relieve pain, and restore normal function in the affected area. The initial approach typically involves the RICE protocol (rest, ice, compression, and elevation), which helps alleviate swelling and discomfort. Our physical medicine protocols and therapy exercises can strengthen the muscles surrounding the knee, improving joint stability and promoting faster recovery, all while reducing bursitis pain. To prevent bursitis from recurring, it’s crucial to identify and address the underlying causes, such as modifying activities that place excessive stress on the knee, using proper protective gear during sports, and maintaining a healthy body weight to reduce pressure on the joints.
WHAT DOES ARTHRITIS IN THE KNEE FEEL LIKE?
With knee osteoarthritis, the knee joint may become achy, stiff, and swollen, making it difficult to bend and/or straighten the knee. Pain and swelling may be worse in the morning right after getting up from bed, or after sitting or resting for a prolonged period. Vigorous activity on your feet may cause knee pain to flare up and can also produce increased inflammation or knee joint swelling.
WHAT IS THE ACCELERATED JOINT RECOVERY PROTOCOL?
Because every individual who comes to Ultimate Health is different, our Joint Rejuvenation Protocol is personalized for each patient.
Our team of healthcare providers has decades of experience and deploys a protocol pulled from nearly a dozen proven treatment modalities.
The Joint Rejuvenation Protocol aims to restore function and increase the health of the tissues and joints, decreasing pain while bringing back functionality.
We want to see you living an active life!
WHAT IS A TORN ACL?
A torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury happens when the ACL in your knee gets damaged or torn (‘ACL tear’). The ACL is a strong band of tissue that connects your thigh bone (femur) to your shinbone (tibia) and helps keep your knee stable when you move. When this ligament gets torn (ACL injury), it can cause a lot of pain and make it hard to move your knee.
Some common causes of a torn ACL include playing sports (ex: football tackle) or doing activities that involve sudden stops, quick changes in direction, or jumping and landing. Sports like basketball, soccer, and football have a higher risk of ACL injuries because they involve these types of movements. Accidents, like falling or getting hit in the knee, can also cause a torn ACL.
There are a few symptoms or warning signs that might suggest someone has torn their ACL. These can include:
A “pop” sound or feeling: When the ACL tears, some people might hear or feel a popping sensation in their knee.
Pain: An ACL injury can cause severe pain in the knee, making it hard to walk or put weight on the injured leg.
Swelling: The knee injury might swell up quickly after the ACL injury. This swelling can be a sign that something is wrong inside the knee joint.
Instability: If the knee joint feels wobbly or like it’s giving out when you try to stand or walk, it might be a sign of a torn ACL.
If you think you or someone else has a torn ACL, it’s important to get it checked out right away.
WHY RISK INVASIVE KNEE SURGERY?
Why put yourself through surgery if it can be avoided? Knee replacement surgery can be very expensive and reports of the total cost of this procedure vary with the hospital, physician, and demographic region of the country. Most major insurance companies including Medicare cover knee replacements. According to the published statistics, the average cost of a knee replacement exceeds $45,000.
