Hi. My name is Michael Ricchiuto MPT, EMT-P. My team and I have been treating persistent knee pain for over 18 years in and around Pittsburgh, PA. In fact, a lot of folks who come into our clinic are under the perception that they’re either going to have arthritis and going to have to live with their knee pain or they’re going to go straight to surgery.

This is not the case. There are many steps before either of those things have to happen and there are a lot of times where persistent knee pain is completely eliminated with the appropriate non-invasive care.

Let me explain. So the body looks a pain, in a way that it’s telling you that there’s something wrong. So you’re getting signals from your brain that something’s wrong with your knee. But it doesn’t tell you specifically what is wrong.

It just points to the part of injury where it’s telling you to do something about it and sometimes pain is not at the source of where the problem really is. This is a sign that you are having persistent knee problems, when your knee doesn’t go all the way to the ends of full flexion and extension.

It should bend fully. And if there is pain within the range of motion, then most likely you’re having signs of persistent knee problems.

Also, there should be no swelling that pockets the knee. So if these are things that are happening, then you most likely are suffering some persistent, knee pain.

Well, there you have it. These are signs that you are having persistent knee pain. If you have any questions about any pain, you can type pain below, and we’ll answer those directly.

Pain and knee problems are very specific to the individual. If you would like a comprehensive look at your knee or if you’re having problems with your specific knee, then you can call for an evaluation.

Our number is (412) 794-8352. I hope you found this valuable and have a great day!
