Are You An Athlete Or Active Adult Struggling With Knee Pain?
A Personal Message From Dr. AJ Cohen
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
It’s very common to think that knee pain is nothing and that it will go away on its own. It’s also common to blame it on “sleeping awkwardly”, running/working out too hard the day before. If that’s happening to you, you’re definitely not alone, and we hear this type of thing all the time.
In fact, knee pain is one of the most common problems that we see in our clinic.
Take John K. As An Example...
“I had injured my knee during running. AJ helped put together a plan to not only strengthen my knee but all of the muscles that may be weak that support the knee. He helped me realize how much pain is acceptable to continue to run and when it’s time to take it easy. I was able to strengthen my knee back to 100% without any surgery. AJ has a great approach and thinks outside of the box especially when it comes to runners. I would highly recommend him! Give him a follow on Strava as well, he has a lot motivational posts!“

Up And Running PT Helped With Her Knee Pain...
“I am a triathlete who came to the sport because I was constantly injured from running. For the past 12 years I have struggled with knee pain related to IT band problems. I have seen many different physical therapists to try and find relief. Sometimes the pain would get better, but it would never really go away…and I always had to run with knee straps. AJ was able to quickly identify the problem and gave me useful exercises to strengthen areas that are weaker. He helped me make minor changes to my running that have had such a tremendous outcome. I am now able to run pain-free and without straps!! I am beyond grateful to AJ and highly recommend him to anyone struggling with persistent injuries. Thanks to AJ I was able to compete in a triathlon last weekend without using straps to run for the first time ever. Not only did a feel great during the triathlon, I didn’t have to deal with pain after the race. (I also cut off over a minute from my T2 time not having to put knee straps on. That’s for any triathletes out there. 🙂 I am SO excited!! I still have work to do, but I cannot believe how much AJ has helped in such a short period of time. Truly AMAZING!“
Maybe You’ve Tried Some Of These Treatments For Your Knee Pain (Only To Find They Don’t Work!):
When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like Knee Pain And Stiffness…
You must choose the right provider for your health.
If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or become dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life. Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your knee pain and stiffness and keeping it from ever returning.
To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but you have to have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place.
That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.
