Of all the joints in the body, the knees are the ones that most people will have a complication with at some point in their lives. While people with labor intensive jobs and athletic hobbies are more susceptible to knee pains, the natural wear and tear on the joint could be cause for anyone to seek medical treatment when a complication occurs.

At Baxter Regional Medical Center, we consider surgery to be a last resort for treating joint pains. We help our patients explore less-invasive treatments and prescribe the method they feel most comfortable with and will be most effective at treating their pain. When surgery is required to treat your condition, you can trust our crack team of orthopedists to take every measure necessary for your safety and health.

When to See a Doctor

Knee pain can be caused by any number of things. While many joint pains will fade without any intervention, certain conditions only worsen over time and it is in your best interests to have a doctor examine the area so they can begin an appropriate treatment in the early stages if necessary.

You should always speak to a doctor about knee problems, especially if they involve:

  • An injury
  • Wear and tear from athletic activity
  • Torn ligaments
  • Torn cartilage
  • Arthritis
  • Obesity
  • Pain that lasts for more than a week
  • Pain that has only gotten worse with time
