Our knees take a lot of stress and strain every day, making them prone to damage and injuries that lead to knee pain. Repetitive movements like jogging, as well as impact injuries from sports and accidents, can lead to long-term knee pain if not properly addressed. Some knee pain can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications, anti-inflammatories, and lifestyle changes, sometimes, more intensive methods such as surgery or a total knee replacement are required to find relief.
Common causes of knee pain include arthritis, ACL injuries, fractures, knee bursitis, a torn meniscus, patellar tendinitis, gout, and more. Knee pain is quite common in athletes as well as people who are overweight. Knee pain is more likely to affect people as they age.

Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics uses the MACI procedure to help patients regain the function of an injured knee. In the MACI procedure, a graft of the patient’s own cartilage is used as a scaffold on which the patient will grow new, healthy cartilage and restore the healthy movement of the knee.
