The structures of the knee that can become damaged:
- The Meniscus
- The Cartilage
- The Ligaments which include:
- The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)
- The Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL)
- The Medical Collateral Ligament (MCL)
- The Lateral Collateral Ligament ( LCL)
- The Patellofemoral Joint (Knee Cap)

The primary goals of Manual Physical Therapy of the knee are:
- Reduce pain
- Increase range of motion
- Reduce or eliminate soft-tissue inflammation
- Improve contractile & non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, or stability
- Return to normal walking, steps and daily activities/ work or exercise
Manual Physical Therapy along with guided exercise reduces pain and stiffness and ensures that the knee function can improve. We combine our professional experience and technique in treating knees to locate exactly where the pain is coming from and what other body parts are also being over exerted or compensating to prevent further damage. The knee is very complex and we will also examine the hip, pelvis and ankle to make sure that we get you back on your feet again as soon as possible.
