Knee pain can be caused by disease or injury. If you already have knee problems, the physical therapist can help with a plan of exercise that will strengthen your knee without increasing the risk of injury or further damage.
Physical therapist will evaluate the range of motion of the hip and the surrounding joints, and test the strength of the muscles in the area. The examination will include observing how you move, standing from a sitting position, walking, running, and squatting.

There are several type of manipulations and exercises your physical therapist can use to relieve stiffness, strengthen the area, and restore normal function of the neck and back. Treatments such as cold or heat application, deep tissue massage, and many more techniques.
Physical therapist may preform specialized tests such as raising the arm and asking the patient to resist a force, all at specific angles of elevation.
