Knee Pain Relief Treat­ments

Treat­ment of knee pain depends entirely on the cause of the prob­lem. There­fore, it is of utmost impor­tance that you under­stand the cause of your symp­toms before embark­ing on a treat­ment pro­gram. If you are unsure of your diag­no­sis, or the sever­ity of your con­di­tion, you should seek med­ical advice before begin­ning any treat­ment plan. Some com­mon knee pain relief treat­ments are listed here. Not all of these treat­ments are appro­pri­ate for every condition, but they may be help­ful in your situation.

  • Rest – The first treat­ment for most com­mon con­di­tions that cause knee pain is to rest the joint, and allow the acute inflam­ma­tion to sub­side. Often this is the only step needed to relieve knee pain. If the symp­toms are severe, crutches may be help­ful as well.
  • Cold and Heat Appli­ca­tion – Heat & Cold applications are among the most com­monly used treat­ments for knee pain. They are non-invasive and effective for relieving the pain and discomfort. So which one is the right one to use, ice or heat? Cold application (Cold therapy) is recommended for acute pain, the first 48 hours of an injury and in cases of Inflammation.

  • Phys­i­cal Ther­apy – Phys­i­cal ther­apy is an impor­tant aspect of treat­ment of almost all ortho­pe­dic con­di­tions. Phys­i­cal ther­a­pists use dif­fer­ent tech­niques to increase strength, regain mobil­ity, and help return patients to their pre-injury level of activity.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Med­ica­tion – Non­s­teroidal anti-inflammatory med­ica­tions, com­monly referred to as NSAIDs, are some of the most com­monly pre­scribed med­ica­tions, espe­cially for patients with knee pain caused by prob­lems such as arthri­tis, bur­si­tis, and tendonitis.
  • Cor­ti­sone injec­tions – Cor­ti­sone is a pow­er­ful med­ica­tion that treats inflam­ma­tion, and inflam­ma­tion is a com­mon prob­lem in patients with knee pain. Dis­cuss with your doc­tor the pos­si­ble ben­e­fits of a cor­ti­sone injec­tion for your condition.
