Knee Pain

Post Surgical RehabilitationKnee pain is a common complaint among many of our patients.  Often times the knee will appear red and/or swollen, but even in the absence of those symptoms you may experience pain when walking, attempting to run, at the end of your run, or when going up or down the stairs.  Those who suffer from arthritis will often times feel pain after sitting for long periods of time and then first standing up.

The knee is a complex joint in the body and is affected not only by the muscles, tendons and ligaments that cross the knee, but also those muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the hip, ankle, and foot.  While at physical therapy we will perform a thorough evaluation so we can pinpoint the cause of your pain.  We will be able to identify your specific muscle imbalances and compensations, and perform an assessment of your gait mechanics.

Following your evaluation, your physical therapist will be able to develop an individualized program targeted at decreasing pain, improving range of motion, increasing strength, and correcting faulty gait mechanics.  Our goal is to return you to your prior level of function stronger and pain free.


Below we have listed many common causes of knee pain, however, there are many different types of injuries and this is not and inclusive list.  If you have specific questions about your injury please feel free to give us a call at (908) 276-0294.
