    Knee pain can be a significant source of discomfort and limitation in one’s daily life. At F.R.O.M. Toronto Pain Relief Clinic, we specialize in the assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of various knee injuries and issues, aiming to enhance our patients’ overall well-being. We are truly a knee pain clinic.

    Inside the knee joint, static stability is provided by the shape and health of your cartilage, also known as your meniscus. Dynamic stability is provided by the ACL and PCL, which limit movements of your lower leg forward and backward. Outside the knee joint, the bones are stabilized by muscles and ligaments securing the femur to the two bones, the tibia and fibula beneath it. The kneecap ‘floats’ above the bones beneath it and acts as the main force transfer point from the top of your leg to the bottom

    The F.R.O.M. Toronto pain relief clinic will aim to address both static and dynamic stability concerns in your knee; essentially, we are a clinic for knee pain. Whether you’re dealing with chronic knee pain or recovering from an injury, our dedicated team is committed to delivering tailored care and support. Contact us today to take the first step toward improved knee health and a more active lifestyle.

    How Does It Feel?

    Knee pain can occur suddenly for no apparent reason. It also can develop slowly, as a result of repeated trauma. Knee pain occurs in different parts of the knee.

    Below is an overview of the types of knee pain, and the areas in which they may occur:

    Anterior knee pain. This condition is also called patellofemoral (or kneecap) pain. Pain is felt around the kneecap (patella) at the front of the knee. This type of knee pain is caused when the kneecap shifts out of position. Kneecap pain commonly affects younger females, such as athletes, and may be due to repeated movements or overuse. Pain often occurs when performing activities like squatting, walking uphill, or climbing stairs.

    Lateral knee pain. This pain occurs on the outside of the knee. It is a type of overuse injury common in runners. It happens when the tendon called the iliotibial band becomes irritated. Pain is often felt when performing activities such as climbing stairs, walking, or running.

    Medial knee pain. This pain occurs along the inside of the knee. It develops when the MCL becomes irritated due to direct injury or overuse. You may feel pain when squatting, walking up or down a hill or ramp, or going down stairs.

    Pain caused by a ligament tear. This type of pain may result from a direct blow to the knee. It also can occur if you twist or pivot your knee while your foot is planted on the ground. Instant pain and swelling usually occur. The knee may feel unstable — like it will give out — when you try to put weight on your leg.

    Pain caused by osteoarthritis, or OA. This type of pain may occur anywhere in the knee where cartilage has broken down. It may begin as mild and gradually get worse. Over time, the pain can begin to limit your ability to fully bend and straighten your knee, climb stairs, squat, or lower yourself to sit in a chair. The knee also may swell, off and on, with increased activity. OA can make it more and more difficult to walk long distances.

Stretching and strengthening exercises can reduce nerve irritation, while heat/cold therapy or electrical nerve stimulation can help manage pain. At F.R.O.M.
