Pain at the knee is extremely common with individuals that run, golf, or workout regularly. With knee pain it can make simple things like going up and down stairs a painful task. This pain can limit your ability to participate in your normal sport activities. Pain at the knee can be caused by multiple things including tendon inflammation, ligament sprains, meniscus fraying / tearing, arthritis, muscle imbalances, and faulty movement mechanics.

How Physical Therapy Helps Knees
It is important to understand that knee pain rarely ever originates just from the knee. The knee position when you are lifting, running, or golfing is a byproduct of what the hip and ankle are providing. If there is a lack of strength or flexibility at the hip or ankle joints then the knee will feel more stress during exercise. A PT can help correct this by providing corrective exercises for not only the knee but also for the hips and ankles.
