Causes of Hip & Knee Pain

The most common cause of hip and knee pain is osteoarthritis, a condition that occurs when the cartilage that coats the bones at these joints and helps reduce friction when you move breaks down, and the bones begin to rub together during movement. This can cause pain, and the process itself can lead to more damage in the remaining cartilage and the bones themselves. Causes of this condition vary, but may include age, genetics, sports injury, obesity and occupational work.

Regardless of your cause of pain, or if you require or have had surgery - Dr. Lightsey will design a personalized rehabilitation program for you and help you gain the strength, movement, and endurance you need to return to performing your daily activities.
