What is causing my knee pain?
An Elite Physical Therapist will carefully examine and find the source of your knee pain. Generally, knee pain is from muscle, tendon, joint or cartilage problems, an old injury, or by changes in the way you walk and move. The surrounding muscles and ligaments may have become weak or tight causing changes and increased pressure to your knee resulting in increased and pain and inflammation.

When do I know it’s time to see a Physical Therapist for my knee pain?
Generally speaking, if a painful knee problem arises and does not go away on its own after a week, it is a good idea to see an Elite Physical Therapist—we call this the “one week rule”. Putting it off longer typically leads to the condition worsening, resulting in more time and money to fix in the long run. In this case, simply ask your doctor for a prescription order for Elite Physical Therapy. Our administrative staff will take care of everything for you with your insurance company, so that you fully know your insurance benefits before you begin.
