    What Causes Knee Pain?

    The knee is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. Surrounding the knee are muscles and tendons, which provide the necessary support and proper movement. If one of these parts is damaged or injured, it may cause varying degrees of pain and impair natural and easy movement.

    The knee specialists at St. Thomas More  in Cañon City, CO, are experienced in treating a variety of knee conditions, including these causes of knee pain:

    • Ligament tear (ACL, PCL, MCL)
    • Tendonitis
    • Arthritis
    • Bursitis
    • Meniscus tear
    • Osteoarthritis
    • Infection of the knee

    Benefits of Physical Therapy

    Our team of orthopedic specialists and physical therapists has years of experience diagnosing and treating knee injuries and will recommend nonsurgical treatment options whenever possible. Depending on the severity of your knee condition, less invasive treatment options, such as physical therapy and injections, may alleviate your pain. If physical therapy and injections do not provide adequate relief for your pain, swelling, buckling, clicking or locking of your knee, knee arthroscopy or knee replacement surgery may be your next step.

    Treating Knee Pain with Joint Replacement in Cañon City

    If you have been living with chronic joint pain, total knee replacement surgery may be a way to regain range of motion in your joint and allow you to move with minimal pain. By removing a damaged knee joint and replacing it with an artificial joint, our knee specialists can eliminate the rubbing of bone-on-bone responsible for stiffness and pain in the knee joint. 

    After surgery, your care team at St. Thomas More Hospital will arrange physical therapy to help you recover more quickly. In addition to helping speed up recovery, this rehabilitation therapy is important to achieve a full range of motion in the joint, restoring strength and improving your mobility.
