If you’ve injured your knee, turn to the specialists at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic. We’ve been offering first-rate orthopedic treatment in Durham, North Carolina, since our clinic’s founding in 2003, and we take a patient-first approach to care.
What Do Our Knee Specialists Treat?
The specialists at our clinic can treat almost any injury affecting the knee joint. Some of the conditions we see most often include:
- Osteoarthritis – When the cartilage in the knee joint wears down, leaving the bones to rub against one another, it can cause pain, swelling, stiffness, and a grating sensation. You might even notice a clicking sound.
- Patellar tendinitis – Commonly referred to as “jumper’s knee,” patellar tendinitis develops in the tendon connecting the shinbone to the kneecap and can cause pain that intensifies over time.
- Meniscus tears – Does your knee feel like it’s locked in place? This is one of the classic symptoms of a meniscus tear, along with pain, swelling, stiffness, and a popping feeling. Although this injury can result from normal degeneration, the knee’s menisci can also tear if someone twists or rotates their knee while also placing weight on it.
