Lower Extremity

The lower extremity consists of the knee, foot, and ankle and includes all of the joints, muscles and tendons of the thigh and lower leg. We focus on normalizing the mobility of all these structures with gentle, yet powerful manual physical therapy techniques.

Knee Pain

At Manual Edge, we treat patients with all types of knee injuries, conditions, and pain. Our patients most commonly see us for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries and total knee replacements.

Research shows that 11% of all sprains or strains evaluated by physicians occur at the knee, and greater than half of all joint replacements are total knee arthroplasties. Clearly, the knee is an important joint that bears a lot of stress and forces over the years. Knee pain can cause walking to be uncomfortable or even unbearable, and untreated knee problems can create secondary injuries at other joints including the low back, hips, and ankles. Athletes often struggle with ACL or meniscus tears, as well as patellar tendonitis. Physical therapists can provide a non-invasive treatment of knee pain, as well as help patients prepare and recover from a surgical procedure on their knee.

Foot Pain

Whether you're on your feet all day at work, training for an upcoming athletic event, or just relaxing with your family on a Sunday, foot pain can be crippling.

Manual Edge therapists provide excellent medical care for a variety of foot and leg issues like bursitis, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon injuries, bunions, ankle sprains, and athletic injuries.

After evaluating your pain, a specialist at Manual Edge will work with you to formulate a plan to alleviate your pain, restore function, and reduce the risk of future injuries.

Don't live with pain.

Here’s what some of our patients had to say

My wife and I have been treated at other PT practices and none holds a candle to Manual Edge! You get actual hands on manipulation for your whole session that really helps vs. other places that give you a few mins of therapy, then slap a hot pad on you, give you some exercises and…

Most PT places herd you in and out like cattle. Very little personalized care. Manual Edge is 100% personal care, not “go ride the exercise bike for 20 minutes while I drink coffee with the rest of the staff”. Teresa is great, but I’ve heard great things about the rest of the staff from friends…

five stars Dennis B. Manual Edge Patient

Manual Edge is wonderful. The front desk staff are super sweet. Val is absolutely amazing! She’s helped so much with my pain. She listens and really tries to find the perfect way to help you out. She doesn’t just give you the routine she gives everyone else. She definitely makes it as personal as possible.

five stars Christine D. Manual Edge Patient

They’re very efficient and kind, and time spent waiting to be seen is minimal. I’m pleased with a great physical therapist, who explains the reasons behind the therapy.

five stars Sally S. Manual Edge Patient

Tim cured my headaches that bothered me everyday for almost two years. He is very kind and patient, and his cranial manipulation techniques eliminated the pain in my head immediately. Tim is truly one of a kind.
