Knee pain is one of the most common problems active adults face. It’s a major cause of disability which can affect daily routine activities and limit movement. That’s why knee examination is a critical step in aiding patients with pain in the knee to reach a diagnosis and begin the appropriate treatment.
A knee exam consists of the following parts:
Your physician will look at your knee to observe any abnormalities like swelling, redness, bruising, or signs of deformity. During this step, both knees will be compared to identify any differences in bone length or position. You could also be asked to walk so your physician can check if your gait is dramatically affected by your knee problem.
