Knee Pain

MOST COMMON KNEE CONDITIONS WE TREAT:

PATELLOFEMORAL SYNDROME (Runners Knee)

Overuse and overexertion injuries often lead to this condition. It can be a combination of patellar tendon strain, torn cartilage, and a knee cap that is out of proper alignment. SOLE THERAPY will help your foot posture & hip control to fix this biomechanically.  

BAKERS CYST

A Baker’s Cyst is a pocket of fluid that forms a lump behind the knee. It is also called a popliteal cyst. Cyst formations are a very common symptom in knee arthritis. SOLE THERAPY can manage this with conservative treatments.

HAMSTRING & CALF INSERTION PAIN

The hamstring and calf complex insert behind the knee joint and can be a common cause of posterior knee pain. SOLE THERAPY will help the muscles to function properly and aid in the realignment to ease your knee pain.

 

KNEE CARTILAGE & MENISCUS PROBLEMS

Trauma to the knee cartilage or overexertion of the knee can tear the menisci. A torn meniscus will feel sharp pain in the affected knee, and the knee may begin to swell or lock up on movement. SOLE THERAPY can help improve the alignment of the knee and help decrease swelling and pain caused by this injury.

KNEE LIGAMENT INJURIES

Knee ligament sprains and tears are very common sports injuries, and can occur to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and medial collateral ligament (MCL). SOLE THERAPY can help in preventing these injuries to avoid severe knee pain or possibly surgery.

DEGENERATIVE CHANGES OF THE KNEE (Arthritis)

Arthritis is a chronic degenerative condition that may require surgery if not managed with conservative therapy early. You may experience stiffness and swelling, and it may be hard to bend your knee or go up or down stairs. Seek SOLE THERAPY help if these symptoms occur.

GENU VARUM (Bow-leggedness)

Genu varum (also called bow-leggedness, bandiness, bandy-leg, and tibia vara), is a varus deformity marked by (outward) bowing at the knee.

GENU VALGUM (Knock-Knee)

Genu Valgum, commonly called “knock-knee”, is a condition in which the knees angle in and touch each other when the legs are straightened.
