Knee:

 

Knee pain affects all age groups and most commonly results from structural misalignments and muscle imbalances. The knee is one of the more complex joints being made up of 4 bones[femur, tibia, fibula, patella] and strong surrounding ligaments which provide stability. It is also comprised of a joint capsule and 2 menisci which act as shock absorbers. Two main muscle groups, quadriceps and hamstrings, work in balance to mobilize and stabilize the knee joint. Misalignments of any of these elements lead to abnormal biomechanics of the knee. The ultimate outcome of any type of knee dysfunction may be osteoarthritis. Once again, the joints above and below the knee joint influence the balance and function of the knee joint so an an analysis of hip and foot function need to go hand-in-hand with an evaluation of knee pain. Conditions we treat: meniscus tears, ligament sprain/strain, patellofemoral syndrome, anterior knee pain, patella tendonitis, brusitis, chrondromalacia patella, iliotibial band syndrome, hamstring tendonitis.
