Did you know that knee arthroscopy for arthritis and mensical tears does not necessarily result in lasting pain relief or improved function? In fact, physical therapiast care is as effective as surgery for meniscal tears or mild to moderate osteoarthritis and is recommended by experts over surgery.
Physical therapist care is most effective for patients with good range of motion. Strengthening the muscles the support the knee can delay or prevent surgery as well as promote a better outcome if you do need surgery.
With a one-on-one consultation and treatment included in every visit, your physical therapist can focus on you and your movement problem, analyzing your gait and teaching you to walk or run more efficiently.
Physical therapist care for knee problems is eligible for coverage by most insurance policies. Please call (773) 665-9950 for more information or schedule an onsite or virtual appointment.

Our Patients Say It Best!
"I had been suffering from a pulled hamstring for several months that would not go away. I had a hiking trip planned that I was concerned I would not be fit enough to do. My doctor recommended PhysioPartners. Everyone there was welcoming and helpful...[My therapist] explained his diagnosis very clearly and within a few weeks I was 90% pain free, enough that I am writing this review following a three mile mountain hike with a 1000 ft elevation change." ~ DP
"I came here after getting some bad cartilage removed from my knee, due to wear and tear. [My therapist] has been very patient with me getting my strength and flexibility back in the muscles around my leg and has given me modified exercises when things haven't worked out. I feel stronger every day and am very grateful!" ~ ZC
