The causes of knee pain and limited mobility of the knee joint are varied and often not recognizable at first glance.

The knee specialists in Berlin Zehlendorf know the usual suspects inside out and use comprehensive diagnostics to gain a precise overview of the problem. Following a detailed medical history, a clinical examination using innovative methods is carried out.

Frequently asked questions


If you have persistent pain in your knee or notice a persistent restriction in your ability to move, you should have these complaints checked out by a doctor. You should seek medical treatment after three weeks at the latest, and sooner if the pain is severe. If you have knee problems, you can consult the knee specialists at ORTHO EINS without any detours, or you can first visit your family doctor’s practice.

The type of complaint you have will determine which doctor you should consult if you have knee problems. In the event of a knee injury due to an accident, a trauma surgeon is the right person to contact. Pain and complaints that occur after or during sport should first be examined by a sports physician. For other knee problems, your family doctor or an orthopaedist can initially help you. The knee specialists at ORTHO EINS are the right address for all knee problems and diseases.

In many cases, knee surgery is only one of several options for treating the knee joint efficiently. The ORTHO EINS knee specialists focus on conservative therapies such as manual therapy and injections with hyaluronic acid as well as minimally invasive therapies. Surgery or even a joint replacement should only be carried out if the clinical picture absolutely requires it or if other forms of therapy are unsuccessful.

A detailed medical history and diagnosis by a knee specialist is the decisive basis for an effective treatment plan. If the cause of the knee pain is localized, pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory medication or injections are often used. Knee braces and knee joint supports are also frequently used to reduce the strain on the knee. Further treatment of the cause is highly dependent on the clinical picture.
