Knee Pain

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.

Conditions causing knee pain commonly treated with Physical Therapy:

  • Arthritis
  • Ligament Injuries/Tear
  • Meniscus Tears
  • Osgood Schlatter’s Syndrome

Here’s what some of our patients had to say...

I started PT after a car accident. The staff was extremely helpful not just with injuries from the accident, but also other issues that had been bothering me. They are very good at communicating problems and solutions and are friendly to boot. Can’t recommend enough.

five stars Kevin RET Patient

Attentive, responsive, pleasant in communication, knowledgeable staff. I got good results in a short time. Thankful to Dr. Andrew for useful information and for a program of exercises.

five stars Elena RET Patient

Doug Free, the manager at Mercer Island Physical Therapy, has a PhD in PT, and is an amazing diagnostic doctor who explains why a specific injury occurred. He also does fabulous work on your body. His entire staff is knowledgeable and excellent therapists. 

five stars Gary RET Patient

I saw Anne at 7 weeks post ulnar nerve transposition. I’ve made more progress in 1 week with her than I did in those first 7.  She is extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current research.  I’d feel very good about sending my family and friends her way!

five stars Holli RET Patient

Kelly is amazing! I felt very comfortable and she asked all of the right questions, was super friendly, and knows exactly how to help. I always leave feeling so much better, and confident that if I do my exercises, I will heal!

five stars Kelsey RET Patient

Michelle has been amazing to work with. She quickly diagnosed the root cause of the issues that continued to plague me after recovering from hip replacement surgery that other PT’s (different companies) could not. She listens, is creative, resourceful, and very knowledgeable. Everyone at the clinic is always very professional and interested in our progress.

five stars Conrac RET Patient

I have been going to Summit Therapy for a shoulder problem. I’ve made steady progress and have gotten much pain relief. The staff is very friendly and great to work with. I recently had a sudden problem of vertigo. My therapist knew exactly what to do and performed a treatment that stopped the dizziness.
