What Should You Do If You Have Knee Pain?

Find Out All You Need To Know With My Guide To Knee Pain

My name's Paul Pavlou, and I'm the consultant orthopedic surgeon at the Royal Bournemouth and Poole Hospitals. My sub speciality interests are in sports knee injuries and knee replacement surgery, including revision surgery and total and partial knee replacements.

But that doesn't quite answer the question - why are you suffering from knee pain? Naturally, there could be a wide range of causes and you may even have an idea of what that might be (especially if it's injury). What you may not know, however, is how severe the pain may get, or last, and/or whether there's an underlying issue that needs treatment.

That's why I created this guide. It's your chance to grab some free information which will explain in detail the different causes and treatments of knee pain. Whether it's from arthritis or sports injury... grab your free copy by clicking the button below:

Why Is My Knee Painful?

You are one of many people of all ages suffering with knee pain. There are many causes of knee pain but in general they fall into the following groups.

  • Wear and tear of the joint (osteoarthritis).

    You may have had gradually worsening pain in your knee over months or years and have stiffness, swelling and a change in the shape of the knee or alignment of the leg.

  • Soft tissue problems due to overuse.

    You may have knee pain that comes on when training for a marathon that stops you training but settles when you rest.

  • Joint pain and swelling due to medical conditions that cause damage to your joint.

    You may have severe knee pain and swelling that comes on without injury or warning. An example is rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Ligament and cartilage damage due to an injury.

     Have you twisted you knee playing sport or had a fall at work. Your knee may give way or lock.

What Have Others Said?

"Thank you so very much for performing a successful replacement of my knee. I am now back to normal (after only 6 weeks!)"

Mrs C.T.

"Thank you so much for taking such good care of me and giving me my first new knee. I am actually looking forward to seeing you again for the second one. I am not at all nervous about it now."

Mrs A.F

"Can I also just ask you to pass onto Mr Pavlou my sincerest thanks. This weekend I took part in a 10mile road race, the longest distance race I have run since last year and I was pain free during and after the event. I genuinely didn't think I would be able to do this again so I am very grateful for the treatment."

Miss LC

Mum and I would like to thank you so much for all your care and attention over the last 10 months with her leg. We have been very pleased with your friendliness and approachability. We are so glad to have met you and hope all goes well for you and your family in the future.
