Dr. Strudwick has been incredibly patient with me. From the first time he met me two years ago and still to this day. He knows how to calm me down and get me relaxed since I have bad anxiety he made me feel safe when he did my surgery on my shoulder.. ( which believe me was not very easy) I will always be very grateful for Dr. Strudwick I don’t think without him I would’ve gotten as far as I have. And his staff wonderful again they’ve held my hand when I really needed it. return my phone calls very patient with me wonderful staff.

What causes knee pain?

The knee is a complex joint comprised of many different parts, including bones, cartilage, ligaments, muscles, and tendons, all of which are susceptible to injury. The knee joint rests between the bones of your upper and lower leg and supports the motions of walking, jumping, running, and turning. It is the largest joint in the body.

Problems with any of the components that make up the knee joint can lead to pain and discomfort. Some common causes of knee pain and disability include:

Meniscus tear
▸ Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear
▸ Bursitis / Tendonitis
▸ Instability or dislocation of knee cap
▸ Fractures
▸ Rheumatoid arthritis and other connective tissue disorders
▸ Osteoarthritis and other degenerative tissue disorders such as cartilage damage (chodromalacia)

There are some other, less common causes of knee pain, including infection and metabolic problems. Dr. Strudwick determines the underlying cause of your pain to get you back on track to being active and pain-free again.
