Knee Pain

AIM Physical Therapy treats knee pain to restore motion of the knee joint. Physical therapy will improve knee joint function and flexibility.

The knee joint plays a major role in weight bearing activities. Proper range of motion and strength allow for:

  • Ascending and descending stairs
  • Smooth transitioning to and from sitting
  • Comfortable lifting to and from the floor

Whether due to a sports injury or an arthritic condition, changes in knee function can be painful and limit daily functioning. Chronic knee pain may affect sitting, standing and functional mobility.

We will provide a thorough evaluation followed by prompt therapeutic treatment. We will discuss changes in function and work to develop goals to meet your specific needs.

Treatment

Modalities

A variety of modalities (treatment tools) may be used to assist with pain relief and tissue healing:

  • Ultrasound
  • Phonophoresis
  • Low level laser
  • Iontophoresis
  • Electrical stimulation

Flexibility

Our therapists help to restore motion of the knee joint while optimizing function, muscle flexibility and joint range of motion.

Strengthening

As a component of the physical therapy session, the therapist will work with you to improve strength and endurance in order to promote proper joint function. AIM Physical Therapy utilizes state-of-the-art strengthening equipment in a quiet, calm atmosphere. In addition, the therapist may recommend home exercises so that the patient can continue to work as an integral team member to gain independence and return to function.
