Knee Pain

Physical therapy for knee pain and injuries is one of the most effective solutions for restoring patients’ full function. Whether it’s wear and tear, a sports injury, or pain and stiffness caused by arthritis, physical therapy is an essential and effective first-line therapy and key for rehabilitation following an injury or surgical intervention.

While our physical therapists will treat your knee pain, they will also identify the cause of your discomfort and provide you with solutions to prevent the condition in the future.

Conditions

ACL tears

The ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) stabilizes the knee by controlling how far forward the femur (thigh bone) translates over the tibia (shin bone). ACL injuries predominantly occur in females after sustaining noncontact (landing) or direct contact (player-to-player) forces.

Total knee replacement

Total knee replacement surgery is typically performed on people who have chronic knee pain, severe osteoarthritis and other other chronic knee conditions that cause pain and loss of function.

Meniscus Tear

The meniscus is a cartilaginous disk on either side of the knee that stabilizes the joint by absorbing shock and other forces. Although the meniscus is often involved in other knee injuries, the meniscus itself can tear by “acute” or “degenerative” means.

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS),commonly known as “runner’s knee,” is pain in front of the knee in and around the kneecap caused by overuse. Running or jumping sports put repetitive stress on the knee joint, which can cause irritation under the kneecap.

Knee Arthritis

Arthritis in the knee is a major pain. Affecting millions of people each year, arthritis becomes more common as people age and as the protective cartilage on the bones of the knee wears away.

Knee Tendonitis

Knee or patellar tendinitis is an injury to the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone. The patellar tendon works with the muscles at the front of your thigh to extend your knee so that you can kick, run and jump.

Treatments

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy involves a range of hands-on techniques performed by our skilled therapists. These techniques aim to promote healing, improve mobility, reduce pain, and restore optimal function. With a personalized approach, our therapists utilize various manual therapy techniques to address specific needs and conditions.

Therapeutic Exercise and Activity

Therapeutic exercise and activity are modalities that play a crucial role in restoring function, improving strength, flexibility, and endurance, and promoting overall physical well-being. Therapeutic exercise is focused on addressing specific impairments and restoring strength and flexibility while therapeutic activity targets overall functional abilities and promotes independence in daily activities.

Neuromuscular Re-education

Neuromuscular re-education is a specialized technique to improve coordination, control, and function of muscles and nerves. Our therapists use this technique to restore proper muscle activation, improve balance and proprioception, and enhance overall movement quality. By stimulating the neuromuscular system, patients can regain functional abilities and improve their quality of life.
