Knee Pain in North Central Arkansas
Baxter County Joint Care
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
- An injury
- Wear and tear from athletic activity
- Torn ligaments
- Torn cartilage
- Pain that lasts for more than a week
- Pain that has only gotten worse with time
