Knee Pain Treatment in Marlboro

Why Do I Have Knee Pain? From Bursitis in the Knee to Knee Inflammation

Dealing with knee pain injury can be a hard burden to bear, especially when you consider the fact that the knee is the largest joint in your body.  Because your knees hold so much of your body weight, bursitis in the knee or knee inflammation can make life a lot more difficult. It can change your activity level drastically, making playing favorite sports or taking a walk in the park painful.

As expert clinicians with different areas of expertise managing pain such as physical therapy, chiropractic care and acupuncture, our practice has seen patient after patient come in through the door wondering why he or she is dealing with massive knee pain. The answer is there are a few potential reasons you could be seeking holistic or intensive treatments to end your suffering with a knee injury.

There’s a Reason for Your Knee Osteoarthritis

First things first: The knee is the largest joint in your body, so it does quite a bit of work carrying your weight around. This makes it very accident prone, and knee injuries are unfortunately common.

If you think you may be dealing with knee osteoarthritis, bursitis or knee inflammation, here are a few things to look out for:


A common issue that affects 50% of people, the symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee are as follows:

  • Swelling
  • Knee locks or gives out
  • Stiffness
  • Pain that gets worse if your knee joint is stressed
  • Pain relative to one knee only
  • Feeling warmth in your knee joint
  • Creaking or cracking in your knee when you move

Osteoarthritis is often caused by age, as your cartilage takes longer to heal as you get older. It can also be influenced by your genes, weight gain, stress injuries related to your job like lifting or squatting, running, or other sports and illnesses like Rheumatoid Arthritis.


Many patients also come in seeking help with their Bursitis.

Bursitis is when the fluid-filled sac that protects the knee joint (also knows as a bursa) is infected or inflamed. The symptoms are as follows:

  • Warmth or redness of your knee
  • Feeling of tenderness when you put pressure on your knee
  • A swollen area that feels squishy on your knee
  • Some people may have a fever—the bursa could be infected or septic

Now that you know the symptoms, Bursitis is caused by:

  • Repeated kneeling
  • Traumatic injury to the knee
  • A side effect or other issues or medical conditions like, Rheumatoid Arthritis or Gout
  • Infection

More Reasons for Your Knee Pain Injury

While there are other various knee injuries, many of these symptoms are common amongst knee pain sufferers. If you are dealing with an inflamed knee or general knee pain, it may have been caused by: sports, an injury, your occupation, age, health condition, weight or other factors.

Now that you know what could be causing your knee pain, it’s time to consider how you can live pain-free by contacting an integrative wellness practice that can offer you holistic and intensive pain management methods, physical therapy and other types of care to get you back on the road to feeling great again.
