Finding a Knee Pain Specialist in Pleasantville

Northern Westchester County is known for its physical beauty and outdoor activities. Hiking, boating, biking, jogging, and horseback riding are part of the community landscape. The activities of local high school and college sports teams, and many amateur leagues, add to the action.

As a result, soft tissue knee injuries are common among Northern Westchester residents. These include sprains, strains, and bursitis, as well as other activity-related and repetitive stress injuries.

Westchester residents are in good company. Knee pain is the second most common cause of chronic pain in the US, according to the American Osteopathic Society. More than one-third of Americans are affected by knee pain.
