While ice therapy can provide relief for knee pain, there are instances when it may not be sufficient, and consulting an orthopedic doctor or orthopedist becomes necessary. See an orthopedic doctor if:
- The pain persists or worsens
- You experience a loss in the range of motion
- You have knee instability
- You are unable to bear weight on the knee
An orthopedic doctor can provide different treatments that can help with knee pain. If knee pain is related to a degenerative condition, such as arthritis, a tailored treatment plan provided by an orthopedist is more appropriate to preserve the health of the tissues as much as possible, slow the progression of the disease, and maintain knee function. If the pain is caused by an injury, an orthopedic doctor can create a treatment plan to address the underlying cause, relieve your symptoms, and ensure a full recovery can take place.
