Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Sports injuries and repetitive movement that leads to an overuse injury often cause knee pain. The most common cause, however, is associated with age-related degenerative changes. A few of the conditions frequently responsible for knee pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Meniscus tears
  • Ligament tears and sprains
  • Knee bursitis
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome
  • Knee tendonitis
  • Runner’s knee
  • Iliotibial band syndrome
  • Dislocated kneecap

Pain in your foot or hip often changes the way you walk, which in turn puts extra pressure on your knee joint and causes pain.

What symptoms develop in addition to pain?

The problems that cause your knee pain typically produce additional symptoms. You may experience:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Joint stiffness
  • Limited movement
  • Knee instability and buckling
  • Inability to bear weight on the painful knee

You may also develop warmth and redness around the joint.

How does physical therapy treat knee pain?

Whether you need to rehabilitate from a knee injury or restore mobility that’s lost due to arthritis, physical therapy is the path to your optimal recovery. The team at All Health Physical Therapy Inc. always coordinates your care with your referring physician. But if you come in without a referral, your physical therapist is fully trained to examine your knee and determine the best treatment for your underlying problem.

The team at All Health Physical Therapy Inc. uses a range of modalities to relieve your pain, strengthen the structures supporting your knee, and restore your mobility. 

While your physical therapy is customized to meet your goals, most treatment plans include:

Pain management

You may receive treatments like ice, heat, ultrasound, therapeutic massage, and electrical stimulation to alleviate knee pain.

Manual therapy

Your treatment plan may include hands-on therapies to reduce inflammation and restore joint and tissue mobility.

Therapeutic exercises

Specific exercises to promote strength, flexibility, and endurance are the heart of your physical therapy treatment plan.

Functional exercises

Your physical therapist develops individualized exercises that restore your ability to function. These exercises are based on your goals, whether you need to improve balance, you want to be able to walk up stairs, or your goal is to return to competitive sports.

Self-care exercises

You’ll learn an exercise regimen to perform at home that accelerates your rehabilitation and supports your knee’s health long after your physical therapy has ended.
