There are several other conditions which we frequently see around the knee. These can include; tendinopathies (quadriceps or patella tendons), tendon ruptures, bursal pathology, bone pathology and pes anserine bursitis. The appropriate management of these conditions can be discussed.
Inflammatory diseases can also present for the first time with a sore swollen knee indicating a possible link to such conditions such as psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. These will be discussed if and as required during a consultation and ongoing investigations and referral to rheumatology services can on occasion be necessary.
