Knee pain is an all-too-common complaint, often attributed to physical activity or dismissed as the natural result of wear and tear. Many hope that a period of rest will magically make it vanish, only to be left perplexed as the discomfort persists.
You may have consulted with a medical practitioner who prescribed pain medications for what they labeled ‘knee inflammation,’ or you may have received a cortisone injection. Yet, the pain returns, and this time, it’s even more unrelenting. If this story sounds familiar, rest assured you’re not alone, and there’s a path toward a more enduring solution.

If you’re experiencing knee problems, such as pain or discomfort, it’s common to attribute it to the natural consequences of exercise, mere wear and tear, or the belief that it’ll resolve itself over time.
You might find it challenging to pinpoint the exact cause of your persistent knee pain, and it may not be improving as you’d hoped.
If this situation sounds familiar, you’re not alone. We encounter these concerns frequently, especially at our Chelsea Manhattan and Williamsburg facilities, where knee pain is a prevalent issue.
When living with knee pain, everyone has burning questions:
Many individuals assume knee pain will fade away on its own, like magic. However, six months down the line, the discomfort persists and, in some cases, worsens from its initial state.
Seek Expert Help: The first step is to make a conscious decision to seek assistance. Many individuals rest for weeks, hoping their pain will miraculously disappear over time, only to find themselves still struggling six months later, often with worsening pain and swelling.
Targeted Rehabilitation: The next crucial step is engaging in the right exercises. Properly prescribed, progressive exercises provided by our Physical Therapists can significantly alleviate knee pain, restore your mobility, and prevent future issues.
Optimize Posture: Avoid prolonged periods of sitting in awkward positions. Our bodies weren’t designed for extended periods of screen time. Sitting in awkward positions places undue stress on your knees. To counter this, we offer strengthening exercises and hands-on treatment to improve your posture and keep you active and healthy.
Hands-On Therapy: Our Physical Therapy team is experienced in helping people with knee pain. It’s one of the most common issues we address. Whether your knee pain impacts your job, exercise routines, or quality time with loved ones, Physical Therapy can swiftly restore your active lifestyle.

The conventional form of treatment in the medical community today is a steroid injection and rest. Doctor will tell you “come back in 6 weeks if it is not better”. The 6 weeks go by and the pain is now worse, you go back to see the same doctor only to get another injection which will only mask the root cause of your problem.
If you have knee problems, they’re painful or they ache – it’s very easy to think that it’s “just something that comes with exercise”, it’s just “wear and tear”, or that it’s nothing and it’ll go away on its own.
You can’t quite point your finger on why you’re feeling the pain in your knees – but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better!
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, knee pain is one of the most common problems that we see at our facilities in Chelsea Manhattan and Williamsburg.
When it comes to living with knee pain, everybody we see wants to know the answers to these questions:
“Why is This Happening to Me?”… or, “Why am I still suffering with Knee pain that keeps getting worse after dealing with it for 6 months – sometimes more?”… Most people think that when they have knee pain, it’ll eventually “wear off” and go away on it’s own. That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, knee pain will be gone… But then 6 months later you’re still living with the discomfort – often even worse than it was when it started.
