Not only is the knee the largest joint in the body, it also holds almost the entire human body weight, making it susceptible to injuries. A variety of factors can cause knee pain and knee injury, which include frequent heavy lifting, body weight, sports, and/or older age.
The most common knee conditions are:
- Knee Arthritis
- Meniscal Tear
- ACL Injury
- PCL Injury
Most knee injuries can be treated non surgically. However, until the condition is diagnosed, the proper treatment cannot be determined. During an appointment, the doctor will perform a knee examination and may take x-rays, an MRI, or prescribe physical therapy or other treatments.

- Limited range of motion in your knee
