Understanding Knee Pain
Knee pain is one of the most common causes of disability worldwide. We rely on our knee joints to help us do virtually everything in our daily life, from getting out of bed to getting out of a car. Pain and dysfunction in these areas can quickly rob us of our independence and function.
To make matters worse, regular exercise is one of the most effective, evidence-based ways to alleviate pain caused by arthritis, a leading cause of knee pain. But when your knee pain becomes too great, you might not be able to exercise at all—which can lead to increased sedentary activity and even more pain and dysfunction.
Our team at PhysioFit Physical Therapy & Wellness can help you get out of this vicious cycle and find effective relief. Call us to schedule an appointment with a physical therapist and get started on your personalized knee pain treatment plan.

"I had a total knee replacement in October 2015. I was referred to physical therapy by my orthopedic surgeon at Stanford. I searched Yelp reviews to find the best physical therapy clinic in the Los Altos area. I was amazed by the ratings and reviews left by PhysioFit patients. The near 5-star ratings and glowing reviews were almost too good to be true, but I quickly learned that they were absolutely spot on. The therapists and staff at PhysioFit are absolutely fabulous: friendly, helpful, supportive and knowledgeable. I’ve been working with my therapist, Mika, for more than 6 months to rehab my knee. She has done a fantastic job rehabbing my knee, and is the most supportive and caring medical professional that I know. I can walk up and down stairs, ride a bike, and exercise for 40 minutes on an elliptical—all things I couldn’t do for the last three years. The road to recovery has been a long one, and I couldn’t have done it without the staff at PhysioFit. I would give Mike and PhysioFit my highest recommendation. If I ever need physical therapy again, I’ll be back at PhysioFit in a heartbeat!"
