Knee pain can affect people of all ages. It is common among athletes, but also older people.
Symptoms of knee pain can make it difficult to perform physical activities.
It is important to take care of knee pain to strengthen the muscles around your knee to make it more stable and secure.
Knee pain is a very common complaint affecting people young, old, and everywhere in between. Pain in the knee can often be associated with general wear and tear from daily activities like walking, bending, standing, and lifting. Athletes or people who run or play sports that involve jumping or quick pivoting movements are more likely to experience knee pain and knee issues. Regardless of how the pain has come about, it can be an inconvenience and even crippling in some situations, so it is important to take care of your pain.
The intensity of knee pain can differ significantly, based on the state of injury. Some may feel only a slight spasm or ache, while others may experience debilitating knee pain interfering with their daily activities. Symptoms include swelling or stiffness, redness and warmth to touch, weakness, or instability, popping or crunching noises, or lack of range of motion. Pain can be caused by mechanical problems, types of arthritis, bakers’ cysts, ACL, MCL, or LCL injuries, bursitis, tendonitis, iliotibial band syndrome, a dislocated kneecap, or pain in other areas of the body.

“I had 2 surgeries on my left knee and a buildup of scar tissue that caused me constant pain when walking or standing... I don’t know exactly how they did it, but within a few weeks, my pain was almost completely gone. Now, I just come in for maintenance and I couldn’t be happier!”

“I had torn my ACL playing tennis. I thought I would never the same. Dr. Rotondi and Jenn treated me for several weeks. At first, I didn’t think this would help, but let me tell you, I was not disappointed!”
