Recognizing a knee problem can occur at anytime. Arthritic knee problems may be related to previous injury, demands placed on it over a lifetime, or a family predisposition.
When to seek help is usually prompted by either severe pain or just that nagging ache that won’t resolve. There are a number of ‘over-the-counter’ remedies that most of us try at some point. Taking time out for a doctor appointment is saved for when other options don’t seem to make much headway toward resolving the problem.
Arthritic pain can become more than an annoyance for some. Giving up activities or declining invitations because the knee won’t “make it” are common concerns. In the worst cases even a good night’s sleep can be difficult.
When To See A Doctor?

Many conditions can cause or contribute to joint pain and many treatments exist.

My family and I have been long time patients of Dr. Thomas Barrett one reason or another. My Mother who lives in Philadelphia broke her elbow while she was here visiting and Dr. Barrett operated on her. When she went home and followed up with an Orthopedic Surgeon, the practice was SO impressed with his work that they were asking my Mother who did it, what practice he was with and said he did a wonderful job because the elbow is very difficult to work on!
I would NEVER see anyone else!
