What can I do prevent knee pain?

  • Achieve healthy weight with BMI of 25 or less.

  • Being fully fit when returning to sports

  • Most ACL injuries occur in the second half of games because of muscle fatigue

Our treatment options for knee pain are:


  • Pre and post injury rehabilitation and core strengthening muscle and ligaments around the knee

Physical massage therapy:

  • Help to strengthen muscle and ligament groups that support the knee , improve mobility and flexibility, and promote proper positioning and posture.

Tecar Therapy

Medical Acupuncture/Dry Needling:

Joint injection
