Knee Pain Q & A

What causes knee pain?

Sports injuries, overuse injuries, and degenerative changes cause most cases of knee pain. Your risk is highest when you participate in activities that put extra stress on your knee, such as jumping, long-distance running, and quick pivoting. 

However, anyone can develop degenerative problems over years of walking, standing, and everyday movement.

Common health conditions that cause knee pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Meniscus tears
  • Knee bursitis
  • Knee tendonitis
  • Runner’s knee
  • Dislocated kneecap
  • Ligament tears and sprains

Problems in your foot, hip, and lower back also lead to knee pain, as they affect your body’s alignment and put extra pressure on your knee.

What symptoms will I have in addition to knee pain?

The health problems associated with knee pain usually cause other symptoms such as:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Joint stiffness
  • Joint instability
  • Limited knee movement
  • Inability to bear weight on your knee

If your skin is red and feels warm, it may be a sign you have an infection.

How does physical therapy treat knee pain?

Whether you need to alleviate pain, restore mobility, or rehabilitate from an injury or surgery, physical therapy is the treatment you need to ensure your optimal recovery. 

At your initial visit, your provider at Elite Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation, examines your knee and develops a customized physical therapy program based on your underlying knee problem.

Your treatment includes passive and active exercises to restore your knee’s health, improving your knee’s range of motion, and strengthen the leg and hip muscles that stabilize the knee.

You also learn an exercise regimen you can do at home to extend your rehabilitation beyond your physical therapy sessions.
