Treating Knee Pain with Physical Therapy

At our NYC physical therapy and chiropractic integrated practice, we see many knee issues. Whether the pain results from a skeletal injury, a muscle strain, muscular imbalances or a mis-tracking tendon, we are equipped to deal with any knee injury. Our expert physical therapists use an array of cutting edge techniques and equipment to get you back to doing what you love, quickly, and without resorting to painkillers or invasive surgical intervention.

Our Approach to Treating Knee Pain

Physical therapy is one of the most common avenues for treating knee pain, hundreds of thousands of people every year visit a physical therapist for musculoskeletal issues and injuries. While almost half of the people looking for a physical therapist are seeking back pain relief, knee pain is also a very common problem physical therapists help treat. The goal at Living Well Medical is to get tot he bottom of the problem, by finding the root cause of pain and restoring structural and dynamic strength of the knee joint.

Anatomy of the Knee

The knee joint is a very unique structure in the body. While both hips and shoulders are ball and socket joints, and the wrists and ankles both contain very similar skeletal articulations, the knees and elbows do not share this theme of recurring structural traits. The knee joint is especially prone to sprains and strains because it is a sliding hinge joint, which means that not only does the knee work like a hinge one a door, the condyles of tibia then slide across the femur, as the knee is bent. This is a fairly complicated articulation and the friction involved in the bones sliding as well as hinging on each other adds to the number of injuries that the knee joint can face.

The Prevalence of Knee Injuries

We demand a lot from this complicated, but robust part of our kinetic chain. The hips are often talked about when the subject of lower body mobility comes up because that is where the human center of gravity is located, but the knees must direct, and redirect the movements originating in the hips. It seems that in certain sports, such as football and basketball, there is a high likelihood of knee injuries. This isn’t just due to the often devastating nature of knee injuries, especially those acute in nature, but their prevalence is indeed common in many of our sports, such as Weightlifting and Crossfit.

Integrated Physical Therapy

At Living Well Medical, the integrated approach is what is employed to find long term results for a number of common knee issues. Some of the common knee conditions treated at our Manhattan paractice are:
Patellafemoral Syndrome
Patellar Tracking Disorder
Patellar Chondromalacia
ACL Sprain
MCL Sprain
ACL/ MCL partial tears
Knee instability
Arthritis
Muscular imbalances
Bursitis
Tendinitis

When treating the vast conditions resulting in lee pain, the physical therapists at Living Well work alongside chiropractors, massage therapists, and acupuncturists. While the practice focuses on a non-surgical, non-drug approach, the toughest cases that have exhausted physical therapy and chiropractic are referred to our associate orthopedic surgeon. The Physical therapists rely on rehabilitation, corrective exercise, manual therapy, and well as Cold Laser Therapy, Class 4 hot laser, the Graston Technique, and Kinesio Taping. When pared with lifestyle advice, as well as postural tips and mobility techniques, the result is long term, unrivaled pain relief.

Patient Testimonial

They're funny, smart, and professional. I actually found his office through Google reviews when I had some back issues after my move to NYC, and am incredibly grateful I did. I can't recommend Dr. Sho and his team enough.
