Knee pain and knee injuries are one of the most common reasons that patients see their doctors. Whether you have an active lifestyle or not, the knee is a complex joint with many components making it vulnerable for a wide variety of injuries. The severity of the knee pain can vary, depending on the location and cause of the problem. Many knee injuries can be helped with bracing and by participating in physical therapy for knee pain. Unfortunately some more severe injuries may need surgical repair. Whether you are a surgical candidate or not, physical therapy can help decrease your knee pain and increase your function and strength. Physical therapy for knee pain can also help individuals who are undergoing a total knee replacement, both before and after surgery, thereby making the recovery process much smoother. Our physical therapists will work with your physicians to evaluate and treat your knee injury with the use of therapeutic modalities, massage, manual therapy techniques and stretching/strengthening exercises. We love to see our patients return to the activities that they love after an individualized plan for physical therapy for knee pain. Whether you are suffering from a chronic issue such as arthritis, or are recovering from an injury or surgery, our physical therapists can create a plan to lessen your knee pain and get you back to your normal everyday life.
