Knee Pain Causes
Like most conditions, knee pain can be a result of a single event such as weight lifting, or overtime with use of poor mechanics or simply overuse. Knee pain can also happen as a result of other areas in the body such as your anatomical make up of your hips, feet, and even low back. During our initial examination, we work to identify these areas that will help relieve stress off the knee joint, allowing the knee to recover while creating stability and endurance.

“I was referred to Dr. Centofonti through my gym after having shoulder and hip impingement issues. After just a few sessions, I was not only able to lift weights that were previously out of reach but more importantly pain-free. This allowed me to push myself even further by running my first half-marathon in sub 1:40. I can’t thank Dr. Centofonti for his knowledge and expertise in keeping me healthy and striving to hit new fitness goals.”
