Knee

Our specialty-trained knee doctors at Steindler Orthopedic Clinic are recognized leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of knee injuries and conditions.  

Pain in the knee can be the result of a condition that has developed over time or from overuse like osteoarthritis, arthritis, and Runner’s knee, or from the occurrence of a recent sports injury, such as a meniscus tear or dislocated kneecap.

In some circumstances, and if not identified early on, conditions such as knee arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, making knee surgery, such as knee replacement, total knee arthroplasty, or knee arthroscopy, possible options to relieving your knee pain.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of knee pain, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible before your knee injury or condition worsens.

  • 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 comfortable
  • Have swelling of the knee, joint, or calf area

At Steindler Orthopedic Clinic, we understand that pain in the knee can make everyday activities difficult.

Tips for Healthy Joints

As the connections between your bones, joints will sustain a certain amount of wear and tear as we age. Remaining pain- and arthritis-free requires practicing good joint preservation techniques. The following techniques will help you to treat your joints with care as they age.

Movement

Every day, move each joint through its full range of motion to sustain mobility and freedom from pain. Make sure your movements are slow and gentle to avoid injury, and be careful not to overextend.

Use

Be sure to extend and flex your joints in the manner for which they are intended. Avoid overextending or stressful positions as well as techniques that could put you at risk for injury.

Posture

The manner in which you carry your body has a significant impact on whether your joints will remain pain-free. Practice good posture by adjusting work spaces to your specifications. Avoid back pain by picking items up using your legs, not your lower back. When carrying heavy objects, be sure to cradle the items close to your body.

Play Favorites

Favor the larger joints. Use the weaker joints for duties only they can handle. Using your hands, carry objects palm open to help distribute weight equally over your forearm. If available, make use of surfaces around you. Instead of lifting an object, slide the object across a surface like a table or work bench.

Stay Active

Avoid keeping your joints in the same position for a prolonged period of time. This will help to keep your joints from becoming stiff. In situations where this cannot be avoided, such as car rides, take a break every hour to stretch and adjust your seating position.
