Assessment and diagnosis
While limited in the past, treatment options for knee pain are on the rise:
- Physical therapy56
- Medications including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS)56
- Steroid joint injections7
Though each of the treatments previously discussed has demonstrated efficacy in some patients, many patients’ chronic knee pain remains unresolved. For example, an estimated 10% to 34% of patients experience long-term pain after total knee replacement.9
