Knee Pain Newtown, PA
Knee pain can range from a constant uncomfortable feeling to a severe sharp pain that can be disabling. It can make the leg feel “heavy” and make it difficult for some patients to walk or stand at work or home. Any athlete that has experienced a serious knee injury knows that it could very well end his/her season. Anyone with knee pain should see a specialist in sports injuries, sports medicine or orthopedic medicine if there is swelling, locking or weakness in the knee as these can be signs of a serious condition. If knee pain interferes with your ability to stand, walk or climb up/down the stairs you should see a doctor for a consultation, especially if the symptoms don’t go away after a few days.
Performance Spine and Sports Medicine provides an excellent spacious and comfortable environment equipped with the best orthopedic medical doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, and podiatrists. Call us today to make an appointment with one of our Specialists today!

At Performance Spine & Sports Medicine (PSSM for short), the doctors specialize in the diagnosis of the many potential causes of knee pain and in the treatment of knee injury WITHOUT surgery. Patients that are treated at our facility may have:
Knee bursitis or tendinitis
Ligament sprains, strains or tears (such as the ACL)
Meniscal (cartilage) damage
At PSSM, the doctors are the leading local experts in Regenerative Injections that may repair tendon, cartilage (such as Meniscal Tears) or ligament tears (such as ACL tears) and strengthen the knee joint. Ask about cutting-edge procedures like Prolotherapy or Plasma Rich Plasma (PRP) to help regenerate the joint, especially when other injections have failed in the past. For knee arthritis, certain patients may benefit from viscosupplementation with Euflexxa® knee injections.
Lastly, chronic knee pain can be associated with back pain or muscle spasms in the hip or buttocks if the pain has caused a limp. Poor back posture and hip alignment can worsen knee pain. In addition, certain back or hip conditions can have associated pain at the knees. At PSSM, we have a unique combination of Medical Intervention, Chiropractic treatment, Physical Therapy, and Nutritional Intervention,Acupuncture, and fitness programs to treat knee pain and have helped hundreds of patients improve not only performance in sport but in everyday life activities.
