Physical Therapy for Knee Pain

Knee pain is a common thing that many people live with daily. The CDC reports that approximately 25% of Americans have experienced some level of knee pain that affects the function of the knee. Knee pain can make it difficult to run, walk, get up from a chair, get in and out of a car, play sports, and many other activities.

 

Symptoms of Knee Pain

Symptoms of knee pain can include swelling, weakness, difficulty bending the knee, difficulty walking, or symptoms of instability. Sometimes there may be pain just on one side of the knee.
