MultiVu Video Feed: Save Your Knees! Treatments Are Available!
Date:2/25/2009

No Need to Suffer Unnecessarily

Every year, millions of Americans suffer from chronic knee pain. Worse, many choose to remain silent about it.

The causes of knee pain are varied. It could be a sports-related injury, arthritis, overuse or trauma. Whatever the cause though, see a doctor and come prepared. Better health care happens when physicians and patients are on the same page. It's all about communication. Write down your questions before your appointment and insist on fully understanding all treatment options discussed so together you can make the best decision.

While many knee-related issues are remedied by simple rest and elevation, your knee pain may require an orthopaedic surgeon. You may be able to consider medication, injections, or physical therapy before settling on a surgical procedure. But one thing is for sure -- you probably won't get better until you ask for help. Usually with knee pain, the longer you wait, the more invasive the procedure will be needed to get better. And remember, most people who seek treatment usually wonder why they waited so long.

Anyone who has knee pain or questions about their knees should visit: saveyourknees.org. Sponsored by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, saveyourknees.org lists important information about your knees presented in an easy-to-understand manner.
