Expert Knee Pain Diagnosis and Customized Care Plans at Health and Fitness Professionals
Are you experiencing knee pain? The knee joint is a complex structure composed of ligaments, cartilage, and tendons that may all contribute to your discomfort. Furthermore, your knee pain could be referred from other areas of your body, such as your hip or low back. At Health and Fitness Professionals, our experienced providers can evaluate your knee to identify the source of your knee pain and create a customized plan of care that will get you back to your desired activities.
Here are some potential causes of knee pain that our providers can help address:
- Meniscal Tears
- Ligament tears and injuries (ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL)
- Muscle strains
- Arthritis (Osteoarthritis/Rheumatoid)
Knee pain can present with a variety of symptoms, including pain, swelling, stiffness, weakness, or a feeling of giving way. You may also experience popping, clicking, or a “catching” feeling in your joint.
Our experienced providers will use a range of factors to guide their evaluation, such as how your pain started, what factors alleviate or aggravate your pain, your range of motion, your strength, and the location of your pain. They may also use orthopedic testing or refer you for additional testing/consultation, such as X-rays, MRIs, vascular screening, or pain management.
We offer a range of treatments that may help relieve knee pain, including:
- Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy for manual therapy and rehabilitative exercises
- Class IV Laser to reduce inflammation and pain
- Heat/Ice for pain relief
Pain Management Techniques, such as trigger point or viscosupplementation (gel) injections
