Most Common Causes for Knee Pain 

Knee pain, a frustrating but surprisingly common symptom that many people face, has a variety of potential causes. Often it is a result of overuse if the person participates in many physically demanding activities and does not properly rest or stretch. However, it can also be a symptom of underuse if the person has a desk job or is not active enough. Knee pain can also be a sign of more serious issues such as osteoarthritis, fractures, or ligament tears. Other medical issues such as infections can also cause knee pain but are far more rare than other mobility issues. It is vital that patients see a physician for knee pain as soon as possible to prevent any further issues. 

Signs You Suffer From Knee Joint Issues 

Knee joint issues can present in a variety of symptoms however they often go overlooked and ignored for months or even years. The problems can become increasingly severe if not diagnosed and treated. Many signs of knee joint issues are popping and crunching noises with sudden movements or discomfort with use or when weight is placed on the injured joint. When untreated for long enough, patients can lose partial or total mobility of the joint and have difficulty walking, running or even fully extending their leg. Knee joint issues can cause deformities within the leg and can result in further injuries that require surgery or cause irreparable damage.

I was referred to CIM for some calf and Achilles issues a few months after a bad strain. I had the pleasure of working with Derek Haverley to resolve it.

I was referred to Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists and saw John. He was very helpful in easing the pain in my shoulder and gave me exercises to do at home in short increments of time that would fit into my schedule, but would still accomplish the goal. He will listen to any concerns, is very…
