Knee Pain

Hip and Knee Pain Relief

Knee pain or injuries can be quite complex. Pain can occur due to something like arthritis or bursitis, or can be complicated by a sports injury such as tearing your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or suddenly twisting your knee and tearing your meniscus. These injuries can cause severe knee pain. Since the knee has multiple muscle, tendon, and ligament attachments, and is controlled by the muscles that connect to both the hip and ankle, it’s not uncommon for a hip or foot problem to throw your knees out of alignment. 

Another common pain can occur with tightness in our IT band, quad, and decreased activation of the gluteus muscles. It causes our patella to ride, or track, laterally – not in the groove – which increases pressure in the joint and causes a “diffuse” type of nagging knee pain. 

What can I do about my knee pain?

Our highly trained team will evaluate your knee issues, including the location and level of pain and how well your knees move in functional positions like squats and stairs. In all likelihood, your physical therapy to decrease knee pain will consist of strength-building movements, as well as stretches and other flexibility-enhancing techniques.

Using manual techniques to increase blood flow to the ligaments and other structures of the knee, we are able to promote healing of structures – like the meniscus and medial collateral ligament (MCL) – that don’t normally have good adequate blood flow for healing.

Knee pain is not something that you need to live with – even if it seems minimal – we can provide relief in as little as one session.
