Knee Pain Solutions
The most important step of treating knee pain is understanding the cause of the pain. Blindly treating pain without knowing the cause is unlikely to lead to a good result. In some situations, pain may be treated with medications and physical therapy.
In other cases, particularly if loosening, infection, or alignment issues are suspected, another surgery called a revision knee replacement may be necessary. The revision surgery may be minimally invasive or require removing the implanted knee and starting over.
Sometimes, the decision to treat pain after knee replacement is urgent, while, at other times, giving the new knee time to adapt may be more appropriate. Your surgeon can guide you on the most appropriate treatment for the cause of your knee pain.
There are situations where the source of pain cannot be identified. In such instances, it is best to treat the condition conservatively, since revision surgery is unlikely to lead to an improvement. If in doubt, seek a second opinion.
