NYC Knee Pain Specialists: Pain & Sports Medicine Doctors NYC
At Manhattan Pain and Sports Associates you will receive the knee pain diagnosis, treatment, and pain management care you need to reduce or eliminate your knee pain. Because when you have knee pain — whether it’s from an accident, sporting injury, age or ailment — you want a proper diagnosis and pain relief. Appropriate and targeted treatment starts with a diagnosis from a knee specialist doctor.
If you’re suffering from knee pain you’re not alone. It affects people of both genders and all ages. In fact, according to the American Osteopathic Association, more than 33 percent of Americans have chronic knee pain, making it the second most prevalent type of chronic pain in the country after back pain. But if you have knee pain in NYC, you can do something about it.
Manhattan Pain and Sports Associates offers many non-invasive pain relief options, such as physical therapy, as well as pain relief injections that put pain relief medication right where it’s needed. Depending on the level of your pain and the specific cause of your pain, you may only need rest and support for your knee. But you can’t know why your knee hurts until you come in for an appointment.
Determining the Source of Your Pain
If you’re tired of taking an oral pain medicine like ibuprofen for your knee pain every day, especially if it’s starting to upset your stomach, schedule an appointment with Manhattan Pain and Sports Associates. At Manhattan Pain and Sports Associates, pain treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis. We have the diagnostic procedures to find the cause of your pain so it can be treated properly.
Some of the more common knee pain issues include the following:
- Chronic Knee Pain
- Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL) Injury
- Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) Injury
- Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injury
- Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Injury
- Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS)
- Jumper’s Knee

Arrange an examination with a pain management expert at Manhattan Pain and Sports Associates to determine the source of your pain and treat it effectively. You no longer need to live in pain.
Pain from Age or Injury
Knee pain from simple wear and tear can affect the elderly, those carrying excess weight and those who don’t get enough exercise. Athletes who exercise too much or participate in certain sports, such as skiing or basketball, also are prone to knee problems. While the threat of injury is real, sometimes your knee just gives out from years of use. Schedule an appointment if you experience any of the following:
- You can’t put weight on your knee.
- You can’t straighten your leg.
- Your knee is swollen and stiff.
- You hear cracking or crunching noises when you flex your knee.
- You notice an odd bump that wasn’t on your knee before.
Of course, if you suffered an injury, you remember the instant the pain began because you remember the accident. When you come in for a visit, make sure to describe the details of your injury, including how long ago it happened. All the information you share helps the doctor determine a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Get out of pain today. Don’t wait until it gets worse.
