Knee Physical Therapy

Knee physical therapy addresses any knee movement dysfunction through evaluation and treatment of the entire biomechanical chain to promote musculoskeletal symmetry and optimal neuromuscular function. The ultimate goal of knee therapy is to allow each patient to obtain the functional ability necessary to perform the activities required by their lifestyle and to meet the demands of their environment.

Service Overview

Knee physical therapists examine and treat the symptomatic knee by addressing the whole patient. Therapy consists of ongoing treatment adjustments and modifications which are customized to each patient's feedback and response. Supportive functional exercise programs are designed for each patient which are compatible with the manual techniques utilized to restore normal function. Each patient is educated regarding their condition. An individualized, progressive home exercise program is provided throughout formal therapy to supplement and increase each patient's benefit from his/her treatment. The frequency and duration of supervised therapy sessions are determined by medical necessity based on each patient's condition. A 60-90 minute commitment, 2-3 times a week is usually required until the patient achieves his/her goals.
