Physical therapy for the Knee is extremely common. Knee arthritis is the largest cause of chronic disability among U.S. adults over 65 years of age. The knee is comprised of the patella (kneecap) which connects the tibia (shin) and femur (thigh bone) with 4 different ligaments. Two of these ligaments are called the meniscus. The meniscus is known as the “shock absorber” of the knee and can be torn or worn down due to use and/or age. As physical therapy treatments become more advanced, research has shown that exercise and physical therapy can be as effective as surgery when dealing with knee arthritis and pain.
