The specialty-trained doctors at Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine are recognized leaders in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of knee injuries and conditions.
The knee is a hinge joint with the primary movement of bending (flexion/extension). Since the knee is a weight-bearing joint, it is susceptible to overuse injures including; osteoarthritis, bursitis, patellar (kneecap) tracking dysfunction, and tendonitis (jumper’s knee). In some circumstances the knee can be damaged in sports injuries, which typically includes meniscus tears and ligament injuries.
Symptoms of a knee injury include:
- Deep or superficial pain in or around the knee or knee cap
- Stiffness/pain in the knee with standing or walking
- Swelling in the knee or lower leg
- Grinding and cracking sounds with movement
- Popping or grinding sounds in the knee joint

Arthritis is one of the most common causes of knee pain in the aging population. The knee joint is covered in articular cartilage, which is responsible for shock absorption, joint lubrication and reducing friction between bones. Osteoarthritis is a “wear-and-tear” injury to the cartilage that occurs over time. It can be very painful and may result in joint swelling.
