Our specialists are experienced at treating the different types of injuries that athletes and non-athletes can suffer. We will work with you to pinpoint what’s causing your knee pain and create a customized knee pain relief treatment plan based on your goals.

Contact us and schedule your appointment with a physician.

Common Knee Conditions Treated at IBJI

Knee Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a gradual breakdown of cartilage in the joints. Cartilage is a tough, flexible connective tissue that protects the ends of bones in the joints. Osteoarthritis is common in the knees because the knees bear the weight of the body.

Knee Fracture

A fracture is a condition in which you break a bone in your knee. These fractures are caused by high-energy or impact injuries.

Knee Sprain

Knee sprains occur from overstretching of the ligaments that support the knee joint. A knee sprain may result when your knee ligaments are twisted or turned beyond their normal range of motion, which can cause them to tear.

ACL Tears

ACL tears occur when the ACL ligament in the knee joint is torn. The ACL ligament is one of the bands of tissue that connects the femur to the tibia. An ACL tear can be painful and cause your knee to become unstable.

Patellar Instability

Knee instability results when you have one or more dislocation or partial dislocation. The patella is a small piece of bone in front of the knee that slides up and down the femoral groove during movements, such as bending and stretching. The ligaments on the inner and outer sides hold the patella in place to avoid dislocation of the patella from the groove.

Runner’s Knee

Runner’s knee, also called patellofemoral pain syndrome, causes pain in the front of your knee. It involves the patella. That’s the bone we commonly call the “kneecap.” The patella slides up and down in a groove on your femur as you bend and extend your knee. If you have this syndrome, you may have injured the soft tissues that support and cushion your kneecap. Or, you may have some damage to the cartilage on the underside of the kneecap.

Get Care for Your Knees

It isn’t easy to self-diagnose the cause of your knee pain. Contact us to discuss your knee problems and find relief.
