Knee Pain

Autoimmune maladies can present a daunting task in terms of their identification and treatment. Such disorders arise when the immune system erroneously assaults healthy cells within the body, which results in inflammation and the detriment of tissue and organs. At the Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we are well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), lupus, and psoriatic arthritis.

RA is a persistent autoimmune disease that predominantly targets the joints. Its symptoms include agony, rigidity, and swelling within the joints, particularly those in the hands, wrists, and feet. RA can also prompt weariness, fever, and a loss of weight.

Lupus is yet another autoimmune malady that can afflict diverse bodily systems, including the skin, joints, and organs. Its symptoms may encompass a rash on the face, joint pain, weariness, and fever.

Psoriatic arthritis is a class of arthritis that can develop in certain individuals who have psoriasis, a skin disorder that causes red, scaly patches. Psoriatic arthritis symptoms may include joint pain, rigidity, and swelling, as well as nail alterations and weariness.

At the Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we take a comprehensive approach to treating autoimmune disorders.  We work in tandem with each patient to formulate an individualized treatment plan that caters to their specific requirements and objectives. Autoimmune issues can be difficult to manage, but with the right therapy and support, one can control their symptoms and improve their quality of life. At the Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we are committed to helping our patients with autoimmune disorders attain optimal health and well-being.

Lets talk about the most common causes of knee pain for those 50 plus. Knee pain can be a real pain, but it doesn't have to be a constant burden on your daily life. Let's dive in!

  • Osteoarthritis: This is the most common cause of knee pain for those over 50. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that occurs when the cartilage in the knee joint wears away over time. This can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the knee. Fortunately, there are many treatment options available to manage osteoarthritis pain, including medication, physical therapy, and joint injections.
  • Injuries: Knee injuries, such as ligament tears and fractures, can cause pain and swelling in the knee joint. These injuries can occur from a fall, sports activity, or even just twisting the knee the wrong way. If you have experienced an injury to your knee, it's important to seek medical attention right away to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.
  • Overuse: Overuse injuries can occur from repetitive activities that put stress on the knee joint, such as running, jumping, or even just walking on hard surfaces. Overuse injuries can cause pain and inflammation in the knee joint, and may require rest and physical therapy to heal properly.
  • Obesity: Carrying excess weight puts added stress on the knee joint, which can cause pain and inflammation. If you are overweight, losing even a small amount of weight can help to reduce knee pain and improve joint function.
  • Aging: As we age, our joints naturally begin to wear down, which can cause pain and stiffness in the knee joint. While we can't turn back the clock, there are things we can do to slow down the aging process, such as staying active and maintaining a healthy diet.
