Knee Pain: Online Diagnosis Tool

We have created a new online Knee Pain Diagnosis Tool. It is a smart list of yes/no questions that can lead you to a diagnosis. This tool has been clinical tested. It is meant for general information and to guide you. It is not meant to replace an evaluation by a doctor or physical therapist. Importantly, it is FREE!

Check it out by clicking on the "Knee Pain Diagnosis Tool" link in the center of the eMEDx homepage. Send any comments back via this blog. Good luck.
