If you suffer from knee pain when you sit, stand, or walk up and down stairs, you are not alone. Knee pain is a common aliment for many Americans. We depend on the strength of our knees to do daily activities, and when these major joints ache painfully, enjoying life can become difficult. But thankfully, virtual physical therapy can help.
