Sports Medicine Knee Pain

Make an Appointment

The knee joint is the largest in our bodies. Running, jumping, and other normal activities all put different stresses on your knee that can lead to soreness and injuries. Knee pain or stiffness can seriously affect your day-to-day life and shouldn't be ignored.

When playing sports, we push ourselves to the limit, and sometimes over it. Our team of experts can quickly stabilize and evaluate your knee and determine if you'll need more than rest and medicine to get back to normal. 

Our sports medicine knee care isn’t just for athletes. Whether you’ve suffered an injury through work or play, UVA’s sports medicine experts have the training and experience to get you back on the job or on the court.
