Understanding and Treating Knee Pain

Do you know what’s causing your knee pain?

There are a multitude of factors that can contribute to knee pain. Whether it’s injury, overuse, or arthritis, you’re not alone. In fact, some of the most common causes of knee pain include ligament sprains, meniscus pain, tendon pain, bursitis, and osteoarthritis. But here’s the deal: you need to understand the root cause of your pain if you want to effectively treat it. And that’s where we come in. We’ll work with you to identify the cause of your knee pain and develop a treatment plan that addresses the problems head-on.

Symptoms and Diagnosis:

The symptoms of knee pain can vary depending on the underlying cause. However, common signs include pain, swelling, stiffness, and limited range of motion. To diagnose the cause of your knee pain, we will perform a thorough assessment, including a verbal physical examination, or we may order some imaging.

Treatment Options

The treatment you need depends on the underlying cause and severity of your symptoms. Sometimes, relative rest may do the trick before gradually returning to your chosen sport or activity. Sometimes, we need to provide a rehabilitation plan based on strength deficits, range of motion, control or running technique. Physiotherapy is often a key component of knee pain treatment, and can be a game-changer for those looking for non-invasive options. We might use manual therapy techniques to reduce pain and swelling, prescribe exercises to strengthen your knee, and educate you on lifestyle modifications to prevent further injury.
