Understanding Chronic Knee Pain


Understanding Chronic Knee Pain

Understanding chronic knee pain is the first step to finding knee pain relief.

As a pain management specialist and founder of APICO Pain Management™, I often encounter patients struggling with chronic knee pain. When a patient asks about the cause of their persistent knee discomfort, I take a comprehensive and individualized approach to uncover the underlying issue.

Chronic knee pain can stem from various conditions, each requiring a tailored treatment plan. One of the most common culprits is osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that causes cartilage breakdown and bone friction. Rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, can also lead to chronic knee inflammation and pain.

Injuries to the knee structures, such as meniscus tears or tendinitis, can also result in long-lasting pain if not properly treated. Additionally, bursitis, an inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion the knee joint, can be a contributing factor.

In some cases, the knee pain may be referred from other areas, such as the hip or spine, making it crucial to evaluate the entire musculoskeletal system.


At APICO Pain Management™, we believe in a multimodal approach to chronic pain management. Our #TreatmentPlans may include pharmacotherapy, interventional procedures like joint injections or nerve blocks, physical therapy, regenerative medicine, and complementary therapies like acupuncture or massage.

By addressing the #RootCause and tailoring the treatment to each patient’s unique needs, we aim to provide effective relief and improve overall quality of life.
