Knee trauma can be quite sudden and painful, often literally bringing you to your knees. Pain in the knee can be the result of a condition that has developed over time, from overuse or from the occurrence of a recent sports injury. In some circumstances, conditions such as knee arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, making knee surgery possible.

Make an appointment for evaluation if you experience:

  • A popping or snapping noise in or around the knee
  • Feel like your knee gave out while walking, running, jumping or turning
  • Have severe joint pain, pain in the knee, pain in the kneecap or pain behind the knee
  • Cannot bend or move the knee
  • Begin limping or are unable to walk comfortably
  • Have swelling of the knee, joint or calf area
