I have had to scale back my activity level because of pain in my knee joint. What are some options I might have?

We have joint pain for many reasons. The first step is to find out why. A health history, physical exam, and X-ray will determine the source of the joint pain. Treatment options can range from supplements, medications, exercises, and physical therapy; to injections, arthroscopy, or other minor surgery; to major joint replacement. Many patients assume they have to live with the pain, but lots of times there are simple things to do to improve their pain.
