Chances are, you may need to seek treatment for knee pain at some point, if you haven’t already — it’s very common. The knee is a highly complex and hardworking joint that connects the upper leg bone (femur) to the lower leg bones (tibia and fibula) through an intricate structure of muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Because the knee is subject to a significant amount of stress from daily wear and tear, a variety of painful conditions can potentially develop. Whether caused by a traumatic injury, such as a direct blow, dislocation, or ligament tear; an overuse injury, such as runner’s knee; or a condition that has progressed over time, such as osteoarthritis, knee pain should always be evaluated promptly by an orthopedic knee specialist.
We encourage you to consult with an orthopedic knee specialist at New Jersey Joints in Freehold if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Severe pain in or behind a knee joint, or within a kneecap
- A popping sound or grinding sensation in a knee
- A feeling that a knee is “giving out” while walking, running, jumping, or turning
- An inability to bend or move a knee
- An inability to walk without pain
- Swelling in a knee or calf
Sometimes, if not properly diagnosed early on, conditions like knee osteoarthritis can worsen over time, causing very severe pain and, in advanced cases, necessitating surgery to relieve discomfort and improve mobility. Similarly, ligament injuries – such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, medial collateral ligament (MCL) tears, and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears – may require reconstructive surgery to repair the damage. Oftentimes, these procedures can be performed using minimally invasive techniques that minimize disruption to surrounding tissues.

We are committed to developing personalized treatment plans, and we can address your individual condition and help you return to activities quickly and safely.
