Knee pain can be caused by a variety of factors

Understanding the common causes of knee pain is crucial for identifying the most effective treatments and regaining control of your body’s harmony. Our physical therapists at Omni Physical Therapy & Wellness in Garden City, NY can help using our holistic approach to knee pain relief.

The most common causes include the following:

  • Arthritis: The most common type of arthritis for knee pain is osteoarthritis (OA). This condition occurs when the cartilage surrounding your joints deteriorates, and the joint no longer has a sufficient cushion between the bone. This leads to joint inflammation, with varying pain levels, stiffness, and reduced mobility.
  • Cartilage Injuries: There are two common cartilage injuries, meniscus injury, and articular cartilage injury: If you twist your knee quickly while bearing weight or sustain other trauma, the cartilage may be injured. It is also possible for prolonged inactivity or repetitive movements to cause fraying and eventually tearing of the cartilage.
  • Ligament Injuries: Our bones are connected by ligaments, which act like leather straps to hold the bones together and keep your knee stable. Ligament injuries are often caused by sudden stops and twists or direct blows to the knee.
  • Tendinitis: Your tendons are thick connective tissues that attach muscles to bones. Tendinitis occurs when the tendon becomes inflamed due to repetitive movements. It is common in jumping and landing motions and sports like skiing, cycling, or hurdling. The patellar tendon connects the patella (kneecap) to the shinbone, allowing you to kick, run, and jump. Patellar tendinitis is common in runners, skiers, cyclists, and those engaging in jumping sports. Knee tendinitis can make walking, rising from a chair, climbing stairs, or playing sports hard.
  • Patellar Dislocation: A condition in which the kneecap slides out of place, often caused by a sudden change in direction or twisting of the knee.

There are times when knee pain is the symptom, not the cause of your problem. The knee can alert you to a problem in the foot or hip region. A thorough evaluation by our holistic physical therapists at Omni Physical Therapy & Wellness is the best way to determine the actual cause of your knee pain.

Physical therapy for knee pain relief in Garden City, NY


The evaluations at Omni Physical Therapy & Wellness include a thorough medical history and hands-on physical assessment. Our holistic physical therapists will start with a comprehensive knee evaluation to determine the extent of your injury and assess the possibility of surgery. We will perform range-of-motion and strength tests to accurately assess your knee’s condition. This helps determine any limitations or imbalances that may contribute to your discomfort. Furthermore, we utilize functional movement screens to identify movement patterns affecting your knee health.

Gait and balance testing are pivotal in our assessment process, allowing us to identify abnormalities and areas that require improvement. Specialized testing for the knee ensures a thorough evaluation, focusing on ligament stability, cartilage health integrity, and knee cap function.

Our holistic approach emphasizes the interconnectedness of the body. By treating knee disorders comprehensively, we alleviate discomfort and foster overall wellness.

Our physical therapists employ an array of treatments to address your knee disorder, including:

  • Manual therapy: This hands-on approach reduces pain, increases range of motion, and improves overall function. Techniques may include joint mobilizations, soft tissue mobilizations, and trigger point release.
  • Therapeutic exercises: These are tailored exercises designed to target specific muscle groups, improve strength, flexibility, and endurance.
  • Neuromuscular re-education: This treatment focuses on retraining the nervous system and muscles to work together more effectively to enhance muscle activation, coordination, and overall motor control.
  • Gait activities: Gait training involves analyzing and correcting walking patterns to improve overall mobility and function.
  • Functional mobility exercises: These activities improve an individual’s ability to perform daily tasks and movements easily.

In addition to our in-clinic treatments, we develop personalized home exercise programs designed to enhance your strength, mobility, and balance. They will reinforce progress and accelerate recovery. This ensures optimal knee function and a return to your favorite activities.

Sam is amazing! He always knows just what your body needs that day and how to fix it, using what I call his magic technique. I have a small meniscus tear and after five sessions, I’ve gone from limping every day to walking normally with just minor twinges. Of course, I had to put in the work but he knows…
