Common causes of lateral knee pain include meniscal damage, cartilage defects or injury to the lateral collateral ligament.
Accurate diagnosis requires a thorough history and physical examination along with a review of the MRI. Dependence solely upon MRI studies puts a patient at risk for mis-diagnosis and treatment failure. At Centeno-Schultz Clinic and Regenerative Sciences this is the standard of care. Please review a recent patient case report. Try to identify the source of pain.
