The Knee is one of the most injured joints in the body. Injuries of the knee can be generalized into minor sprains/strains, contusions, or more complex Meniscal and ligamentous injuries. The knee is made up of two joints the patellofemoral joint (knee cap) and the Tibiofemoral joint (shin and thigh). Knee pain can have many origins ranging from direct trauma, sudden twisting at the knee, or repetitive use. It is important to determine the strength, flexibility, and integrity of the structures within the knee before beginning rehabilitation. Weakness or stiffness of the hip and ankle can add stress to the knee and therefore will be assessed during your Physical Therapy evaluation.
