Knee Pain Relief Physical Therapy

The knee is a hinge joint and includes the thigh bone (femur) and the lower leg (tibia and fibula). In addition to the hinge function of the knee, there is quite a bit of rotational movement that must occur, without excess, for optimal knee health. The knee is reliant on sufficient strength and flexibility from adjacent areas such as the hip and pelvis to maintain proper knee health and stability.

Causes of Knee Pain

Knee injury prevention requires properly dosed mobility and strength exercises. A common source of pain in the knee joint may be from the development of osteoarthritis (OA). Pain may also arise as referred pain from the low back and pelvis and may even be affected by joints down the chain including the ankle and foot.

Osteoarthritis of the knee is among the leading causes of global disability, highlighting the need for early, targeted, and effective treatment. This statement is referenced and highlighted in the Journal of Orthopedic Physical Therapy (JOSPT) article published May 31, 2018. It summarizes the importance of properly dosed and focused therapeutic exercises and how it can decrease joint inflammation and pain. The article also explains how therapeutic exercise will assist with the prevention of cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, neurocognitive disorders such as dementia, depression, and other mental disorders, among many other chronic diseases.

A number of chronic diseases aforementioned are associated with OA and chronic low-grade inflammation. Importantly, persistent systemic inflammation is associated with high cardiovascular risk and predisposes one to metabolic disorders and muscle wasting. Thus, the problem doesn’t just lie within the osteoarthritic knee joint, it becomes a vicious cycle for the entire body that can be treated with something as simple as professionally instructed and dosed therapeutic exercise.

Just think about this, research in multiple meta-analysis studies from top-rated journals indicate you can reverse the effects of inflammation in your knee joint, thus reducing the amount of inflammation in your system which will also help reverse the effects of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia, Alzheimer’s, obesity, and depression just to name a few! You will reverse all of these effects with as little as 12 exercise sessions. (See a recent article) >>

We have the solution, and it’s not medication, injections, or surgery. These simple-to-follow knee exercises are often used with ACL injury prevention, adult knee injury prevention, generalized knee strengthening, and are the same knee exercises used to strengthen knees for seniors.

knee physical therapy

Persistent Pain

Knee pain is characterized by persistent or recurrent pain in the knee joint.


Many people have stiffness in the knee joint, especially after periods of inactivity. This stiffness can make it challenging to bend or extend the knee fully.

Swelling (Edema)

Inflammation of the knee joint or surrounding tissues can lead to swelling or edema. Swelling may worsen pain and limit mobility.

Decreased Range of Motion

reduced range of motion in the affected knee. You may find it difficult to fully bend or straighten the knee joint.


Some individuals with chronic knee pain report feelings of knee instability or a sense that their knee is giving way.

Grinding Sensation

grinding sensation or noise (crepitus) when moving the knee joint. This may indicate wear and tear of the joint surfaces.


muscle weakness in the thigh and calf muscles, as pain often discourages the use of the affected leg.

Pain with Weight-Bearing

Pain in the knee joint is typically aggravated by weight-bearing activities, such as walking, standing, or climbing stairs.

Radiating Pain

In some cases, chronic knee pain may radiate to other areas, such as the thigh or lower leg.

Difficulty Performing Activities

Chronic knee pain can interfere with daily activities, such as walking, running, kneeling, squatting, or participating in sports and exercise.

Pain at Rest

In more severe cases, chronic knee pain may be present even at rest, particularly at night. This can lead to sleep disturbances and discomfort.

Visible Deformities

Certain conditions, such as osteoarthritis or knee joint deformities, can lead to visible changes in the shape or alignment of the knee joint.
