Knee Pain Cant’ Wait!

We count on our knees for everything, from walking and lifting to working out and playing sports. When there’s a problem, you need to get it fixed quickly and successfully.  To read why knee pain can’t wait, go to KNEE PAIN.

Knee pain can affect your daily activities and exercise

Risk factors for knee pain include aging, athletic activities, and trauma injuries. Obesity is also a risk factor for the development of many forms of knee pain due to the extra stress placed on the knee. Knee pain can also result from tendinitis, ACL tears, meniscus tears, bursitis, and dislocation.

No matter your activity level, if you have a sore or injured knee, you need the best care possible. Our physicians and therapists provide innovative knee care for each patient, and we will customize a rehab program to meet your needs.

Not every knee injury requires surgery, and our physical therapy department has proven rehabilitation techniques to decrease pain and increase function. Also, our rehabilitation program can prevent unnecessary surgery for many knee injuries and conditions. If surgery is required, our physicians offer the most effective and progressive treatment available.
