What's Causing My Knee Pain?

Our board-certified orthopedic doctors and specialists can help you understand and treat your knee pain. Knee pain is widespread and can be caused by various factors, including:

  • New or aggravated knee injuries
  • Overuse or repetitive strain
  • Degenerative conditions
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Muscle imbalances or weaknesses
  • Poor biomechanics
  • Obesity
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Age

Orthopedic Knee Pain Diagnostics at Bluegrass Orthopaedics

Knee pain can significantly impact your mobility and quality of life. At Bluegrass Orthopaedics, our team is committed to pinpointing the exact cause of your discomfort so we can develop a personalized treatment plan. Here's what you can expect during a diagnostic visit:

We'll discuss your medical background, including past injuries, surgeries, and any existing medical conditions that could contribute to your knee pain. Our specialists will perform a meticulous physical exam of your knee, assessing swelling, tenderness, range of motion, stability, and any visible abnormalities.

Depending on certain factors, like when the pain started or if it was precipitated by an injury like a fall or sports injury, your orthopedic specialist may order imaging like X-rays, MRI scans, or CT to visualize internal structures like bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and soft tissues. These tests help identify potential issues such as fractures, arthritis, ligament tears, or cartilage damage.

Our friendly and proficient staff and comprehensive on-site imaging services (MRI, X-ray, and Ultrasound) streamline the diagnostic process. Our high-resolution MRI scanners ensure thorough evaluations for various knee concerns.

By combining these steps, we aim to provide a swift and accurate diagnosis, paving the way for a personalized treatment plan to get you back on your feet pain-free.

I went to him for my Partial Right Knee replacement a year ago because I had heard only good reviews. I have not been disappointed. He did a terrific surgery on me. No complaints. Follow ups were great. His PA's are very professional. They took the time to answer all my questions. Would recommend Dr. Christensen and Bluegrass Orthopedics to any one that needs knee surgery.

Highly Recommend for TKR's I am totally pleased with the care & treatment provided by Dr. Christensen and his team during the 15+ years I have been a patient. I had TKR's on both knees in past year & while the recovery was a challenging & painful process, I am 100% pleased with the results. He was always willing to listen to my concerns and questions. His PA's Matt & Evan are the best! And, Dr Christensen referred me to awesome Physical Therapists: Chris for in-home PT & Bethany for outpatient PT at Blue Grass Orthopedics.

She listened to my answers and questions and was very caring to any issues I had. I have been to this clinic before for surgeries and therapy and would recommend them to anyone with orthopedic needs. Top notch medical network compared to the local medical group in my area, who haven’t helped at all, and getting an appointment was easy and urgent.
