What’s Causing Your Knee Pain?
Almost everyone has experienced some type of knee pain, whether it’s caused by a sudden injury to the knee joint or due to repetitive stresses to the structures around the knee. When knee aggravation is present, it can significantly impact your ability to participate in daily activities and sport. It is one of the most common reasons that people seek medical care. Knee pain can result from a myriad of structures around or inside the knee, and the key to its treatment is determining the source and the reason for the pain.
We’ve helped a variety of patients from runners with chronic knee pain to patients who underwent bilateral knee surgery.
Chronic Knee Pain
- Often knee pain can occur from repetitive stress to the structures around the knee and result in vague or “moving” symptoms around the front of the knee. This often results in pain significant enough to avoid aggravating activities or sports all together. Current research shows a strong correlation between knee pain and weakness in the hip musculature, along with the inability to maintain proper alignment of the leg during functional/sport activities.
Common Conditions: Patellofemoral Syndrome, Tendonitis, Runner’s Knee, Iliotibial Band Syndrome
Acute Knee Injuries
- Sudden or acute injuries can include sprains, strains, or tears to the ligaments or tendons and these types of injuries usually result from trauma or impact to the knee joint or from quick movements during directional changes, twisting, or pivoting on your foot. Acute injuries typically cause a quick onset of pain accompanied by swelling, and can be diagnosed through clinical testing and imaging.
Common Conditions: ACL or MCL Injuries
Thank you Casey for a speedy recovery after ACL surgery. This was my second ACL injury on the same knee, however my recovery this time was so much better. Casey and I talked about my goals and what I wanted to get back to before we started rehab for my knee. He knew volleyball, running and hiking were big goals of mine. I had surgery in Oct’14 and started working with Casey soon after. By Jan’15 I was starting the couch to 5K program. Thanks so much Casey for a great recovery!“
Therapydia has not only helped me rehabilitate my knee, but has also changed my view of physical therapy. I looked forward to each appointment rather than dreading it and seeing it as a hassle. Also, my knee improved drastically and a lot quicker than I expected. I would definitely recommend seeing Josh and Casey to close friends or family!
Love, love, love the work that Josh has done to help me with my arthritic knee. I can now lead a normal life with very little pain. He is very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining the treatment he is recommending for you.
