Q: What Causes Knee Pain, and How Do I Know When It’s Time To See a Doctor?
A: Knee pain is very common and can have different causes. Whether young or mature, you will likely come across knee pain at some point in time. When a young person experiences knee pain, it’s usually a result of an injury. Knee pain endured by older adults and the elderly may be due to wear and tear or arthritis.
Knee pain that doesn’t get better warrants a visit to an orthopedic doctor. Orthopedic doctors have the specialized knowledge and training needed to treat various problems affecting the musculoskeletal system. Pain is your body’s way of alerting you that something is wrong.
During the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship, the University of Georgia took on the University of Alabama, and we saw many sports injuries, including a devastating knee injury to star wide receiver, Jameson Williams. Whether you’re playing on the big screen or in your backyard, if you experience a knee or sports injury, call Dr. Nicholson to get back on the field sooner rather than later.
