Studies have shown:
The knee is a complex joint. An injury or disease of the joint or structures surrounding the knee can result in knee pain. Sometimes knee pain can be the result of dysfunctions in the hip or ankle. The severity and location of the pain may depend on the causative factor, so it is important to have a thorough evaluation. It is a common condition affecting individuals of different age groups.Next section

A detailed medical history and physical examination of the knee are crucial for diagnosing the cause of knee pain.

Frequently asked questions
What should I wear to my appointments?
Loose-fitting clothing or gym clothes
How many visits will I need?
This is variable depending upon what is being treated and how extensive your treatment needs to be. Our goal is to bring you to optimal health so that you won’t need to continually return.
What is the difference between licensing and board certification for a physician, and do you have any of these?
Physicians are required to be licensed to practice medicine in the U.S. by the licensing board in each state they wish to practice.
A board certified physician has completed an additional training program in a specialty and has passed a rigorous exam to assess his or her knowledge, skills and experience to provide quality patient care in that specialty.
In my case, I am licensed to practice medicine in Texas, and I have two board certifications. The first one is Family Medicine and the second one is Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.
