Knee pain can be caused by injury and affects weekend warriors, cross fitters, weight lifters, runners, as well as people > 50 and exercise enthusiasts. It can often keep you from participating in the activities that you love. Sometimes the cause of the pain may be found in other areas of the body. It can cause difficulty performing activities such as walking, rising from a chair, climbing stairs, sitting or playing sports. Reoccurring knee pain can keep people from enjoying their lives. The problem is that majority of treatments focus at the location of the knee. The hip and the low back must be assessed for possible causes for pain in the knee. Knee braces, injections, and taping only modify the symptoms of knee pain and will not fix the underlying root cause. A thorough assessment of the whole person must be completed to understand the root cause. Physical therapists are specially trained to help diagnose and treat knee pain in order to help individuals return to their normal activities without pain or limitation.

For years I had been experiencing hip and knee issues while running which lead to many injuries. My previous healthcare providers could offer no solution other than to quit running. That was not an option. After one consultation and session with Dr. Nick, he was able to pinpoint the problem and provide helpful information that has allowed me to run without pain for weeks. I would recommend him to anyone that is experiencing pain or that has been advised to stop certain activities to stop the pain. He is amazing!
