What Causes Knee Pain?
Most people are surprised to learn their knee pain is occurring because there is a problem with the foot, hip or both. The knee is the only joint between the foot and hip. So problems in the foot, ankle or hip, such as lack of stability, mobility (flexibility) or weakness can cause compensation and subsequent stress in the knee. Over time, wear and tear develops leading to tendinitis, arthritis and pain.

Most Medical Treatment for Knee Pain is NOT The Answer
Medical treatment for knee pain usually focuses on treating symptoms and NOT treating what is causing the pain. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAIDS) and cortisone injections are common treatments. They may relieve pain and inflammation, but they have potentially significant side effects on the stomach, gastrointestinal tract, liver, kidneys, heart, and can even cause death! Furthermore, their side effects have been shown to accelerate cartilage degeneration and interfere with joint healing. Knee replacements can be a life-changer for people who have a worn out knee, but there are several things that the surgeon doesn’t fix that led up to the joint wearing out in the first place. The bottom line is most medical treatments do not fix the underlying cause of knee pain.
