Knee Replacement Frisco Tx: Why You Have Knee Joint Pain
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Knee replacement Frisco TX is a treatment option you should consider if you have chronic knee pain that is getting worse or that can’t be managed with medication, braces or lifestyle modifications. Your knees are two of the hardest-working joints in your body; they’re under constant stress - no matter what your age - from overwork, exercise, injuries, weight gain and certain medical conditions. Because of the stress they’re under, they can become swollen, tender and painful - all of which can keep you from having the quality of life you want and need.

Joint Replacement Frisco TX: Causes Of Knee Joint Problems

▸ Osteoarthritis - Often called “wear-and-tear arthritis” because it occurs when the protective cartilage on

the ends of your bones gradually wears down, osteoarthritis can lead to decreased mobility and pain

when the cartilage completely wears away and the bones in your knee joints rub directly against each

other. Osteoarthritis is more common in people over the age of 50 but younger people, especially

athletes who punish their knees, can develop it as well.

▸ Rheumatoid arthritis - Rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, is a chronic autoimmune disease in which the

immune system attacks the joints and can affect people of any age. It causes joints to become stiff,

swollen, painful and warm. Knee joints attacked by RA are often more painful than other joints in the

body affected by it.

▸ Traumatic arthritis - Traumatic arthritis is a result of a serious injury to the knee like a fracture or

ligament damage. The injury causes trauma to the cartilage, which then, over time, develops

osteoarthritis.

Knee Replacement Frisco TX: Symptoms Of Knee Joint Problems

▸ Chronic or acute pain in your knees and that is associated with movement of your knees, although pain

can happen at night when you’re trying to sleep.

▸ Swelling or tenderness that comes and goes in affected knees. When swelling or tenderness appear,

it may also be accompanied by redness and skin that is warm to the touch. This is usually more

noticeable after you’ve been inactive for a period of time.

▸ Loss of flexibility which deprives you of a full range of motion in your legs and knees. In addition, you

may notice that your knees buckle - or even lock - from time to time.

▸ A grinding sensation - sometimes even accompanied by a grinding or crunching sound - in your knees

as the rough surfaces of the bones at the joint are rubbing together.

▸ Bone spurs, which are calcifications that form around a degraded knee joint and can be felt through the

skin.

Generally, knee replacement Frisco TX is the last treatment option a doctor will suggest when it comes to treating knee pain; but for many people with chronic, debilitating knee pain, it is the only option. If you’re living with knee pain and haven’t found relief, call us at Texas Orthopedic Partners (469) 293-4000 to make an appointment for a consultation.
