The knee is a complex joint that is comprised of three bones (femur, tibia, patella) and a variety of ligaments, tendons, and muscles that provide strength and stability within the joint.  Many conditions of the knee are caused by dysfunction of the hip and ankle, as it serves as the connecting link between the two lower extremities in the kinetic chain. Due to this, the knee is a common site for injury. Knee dysfunction can be heavily involved in pain in the knee joint, patella, low back, and other regions of the body. Knee pain has many different origins and presentations and should be evaluated by a medical professional.

Knee pain has many origins and presentations and can affect a patient in many different ways. The region of pain might not be the region that is causing your current issue. Our team of doctors evaluates each patient through a detailed history and comprehensive physical exam that includes a series of dynamic and static tests, postural exam, knee stability test, GAIT analysis, and examination of the lower or upper extremity movement patterns that trigger your symptoms.  This thorough examination will allow us to identify what is causing your pain or dysfunction and begin working on an individualized treatment plan with corrective exercises that fits your exact needs.
