How is knee pain diagnosed?

To diagnose the source of your knee pain, your ReGenesis Medical Provider asks you questions about your symptoms, reviews your medical history, and does a physical exam. Your provider might also ask you to perform a series of easy exercises or walk around the exam room to observe your gait and posture. If these measures don’t provide enough information, your provider may order a series of X-rays or an MRI.
