Knee Pain

The knee is a tricky pain point to deal with because it is a hinge joint that can only go forward and backwards. In other words, it can extend and it can bend.

However, it is trapped between two very mobile joints, the ankle and the hip. You can test the movement by making a full circle with your foot and your hip. These joints can go in any direction and the knee is trapped in the middle.

Remember, it can only extend or bend. What happens at the foot and at the hip has a huge effect on the knee. Most of the time people visit Lou after unsuccessful treatments elsewhere, because they only addressed the knee. In turn, forgetting about what the hip and ankle is doing to the knee. As a result, Lou gets amazing results with his patients.

Lou has had referrals from a knee replacement specialist whose patients had significant arthritis. At first, he was challenged, however he faced any obstacles through his analysis and experience by addressing the hip and foot. He was astounded by the positive outcomes.

The fact that the foot and the hip are a large distance away from the knee means that small changes in those joints have a big impact on the knee. The knee is an interesting concept, and Lou has a unique approach to treating it that a lot of other health care providers miss out on.

Knee pain is a common ailment that can have a profound impact on a person’s daily life. Lou, with his specialization in knee pain treatment, is aware of the challenges individuals face when knee pain becomes a part of their daily existence.

Knee pain can limit mobility, making it difficult to walk, climb stairs, or engage in physical activities. This limitation can significantly hinder a person’s independence and quality of life. Everyday tasks such as shopping, cooking, and even getting in and out of a car can become arduous and painful.

For those who enjoy an active lifestyle, knee pain can be particularly frustrating. It can force individuals to give up sports, exercise routines, or hobbies they are passionate about. This loss of activity not only impacts physical health but can also take a toll on mental and emotional well-being.

In some cases, knee pain may lead to weight gain due to decreased physical activity. This, in turn, can exacerbate the pain, creating a vicious cycle of discomfort and reduced mobility. Lou’s expertise in treating knee pain is rooted in his understanding of these challenges. He specializes in developing personalized treatment plans that target the specific causes of knee pain, whether it’s related to injury, arthritis, or other conditions.

By focusing on strengthening and restoring flexibility to the knee joint, Lou helps patients regain their independence, return to an active lifestyle, and live life to the fullest without the limitations imposed by knee pain.

When I found out I had a torn meniscus most everyone said I needed surgery. I went to Lou Fratto at my doctor’s recommendation for physical therapy. I am so happy I did. He has helped me tremendously, I don’t believe I will need surgery!!!

I would recommend him(and his office) in a heartbeat.

Thank you Lou! Thank you Susan.
