Physical Therapy or Chiropractor

We understand that knee pain can manifest in various types, stem from different causes, and present varying degrees of severity and symptoms. Moreover, each individual's knee structure is unique. That's why we believe in offering a multi-faceted approach to address knee pain effectively.

 

The physical therapists, chiropractors, and licensed therapists here at Catalyst Health are committed to providing you with individualized therapy for your knee discomfort. We want to help you feel better immediately, but we also want to get to the bottom of what's causing your pain in the first place so you can heal and perform better in the long run.

Common Conditions that Can Result to Knee Pain:

  • Arthritis - Osteoarthritis occurs due to wear and tear of the joint cartilage, while rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition that causes joint inflammation. 

  • Acute Traumatic Pain - This type of knee pain occurs suddenly due to an injury or trauma, such as a fall, sports-related incident, or car accident.

  • Meniscal pain - is often associated with sudden twisting or rotational knee movements.

  • Chronic Pain - persistent or recurring pain that lasts for an extended period, typically over three months.

  • Runner’s Knee - is characterized by pain around or behind the kneecap (patella). It is often associated with activities that involve knee bending, such as climbing stairs, squatting, or sitting for extended periods. 

  • ACL Tear - An ACL tear is a significant knee injury that often occurs during sports activities involving sudden stops, changes in direction, or direct impact to the knee.
