How We Diagnose Knee Pain

Specialists in Knee Pain

When diagnosing your knee pain, the physician will perform a comprehensive physical exam. The exam will test the knee for any possible swelling, popping, pain, tenderness, or warmth. The exam will also check the patient's range of motion to see how far the knee joint can move and at what point pain is reproduced. The physician may also use specific orthopedic testing on the joint to help further evaluate the structures within the knee.

The physician may request to see previously taken  images of the knee such as x-rays, CT scans or MRI  to further help with his diagnosis and approach to treating   your specific type of knee pain.  The physician will also take into account the patient's personal medical history along with the results of the physical exam to determine how best to approach your case.

Once the physician has gathered all necessary information he will diagnose your condition and design an individualized treatment plan . In most cases, treatment begins in our clinic on the very first day.

Some Common Conditions We Diagnose and Treat

Knee Sprains

Knee sprains can occur from activities that cause overstretching or twisting of the collateral ligaments that provide structural support to the knee joint. With a knee sprain  the knee ligaments  experience forces beyond their normal range of motion causing them to partially tear. Knee sprains can be  treated with gentle traction on our knee decompression equipment.

Knee Tendonitis

Knee tendonitis, also called "jumper’s knee", is an injury found to occur within the tendon connecting the quadriceps musculature to the anterior lower leg passing over the kneecap. This condition is commonly seen in young athletes and sports that require persistent jumping.
Our treatment for jumper's knee besides rest focuses on "softening" the tendon with knee decompression and trigger point therapy.

Knee Bursitis

Knee bursitis occurs when the bursa, a small fluid-filled sac in the knee, swells  outward causing localized knee pain.  The bursae are often a continuation of the joint capsule itself and function as a gliding surface for mainly tendons, and muscles. 
Our knee decompression "milking" function helps with the resorption of the fluid from the bursa back into the joint capsule.

Knee Decompression 

Knee Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative arthritis, is the result of osteophyte formation (bone projections formed on the joint margins) and gradual breakdown of cartilage within the knee joint. Cartilage although a tough, and flexible connective tissue can breakdown when the joint is in a constant stage of chronic inflammation. Osteoarthritis is  commonly found in the knees because the knees are a common site for injuries in both the young and old. 
Again our treatments focus in flushing out the stagnant fluid within the knee joint thru knee decompression. This therapy provides relief and replenishes the joint with nutrient rich fluid (synovial fluid) leading to a decrease in pain and inlammation.
