Knee pain is one of the most common reasons that people stop doing the activities they love, and it can affect people of any age.
There are many reasons for your knees to hurt, ache, or be in pain, including:
Knee pain can make it uncomfortable to work, drive, exercise, and even sleep. But fortunately, it can often be treated and managed conservatively with great results – without pain killers! Our Doctors of Physical Therapy have helped hundreds of patients with knee pain return to daily tasks, sport, and exercise. Are you ready to see if they can help you get back to all the things you love?
An evaluation with a physical therapist is the first step. Once your physical therapist has identified what is causing your pain, they can design a personalized treatment plan just for your.
Physical therapy helps you to find the problem and work towards addressing it. For example, if your hip joint is restricted and results in abnormal force down to your knee, it can result in pain.
Your PT will use a combination of treatment styles to improve your hip mobility, i.e. a combination of joint mobilizations or manual techniques and exercises to help to gain and/or maintain improvements and stabilize the joint.
Physical Therapists assist you in moving better, whether it’s a verbal cue, tactile cue, demonstration, props, or a combination of the above, they help you to move more optimally.
A Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) is a highly educated and licensed healthcare professional who specializes in movement analysis, pain management, and restoring mobility to the musculoskeletal system. A physical therapist’s job is to help you determine where your faulty movement patterns lie, and how to correct them.
Post-operatively, physical therapists also progress patients out of immobility and back to their prior level of function. They manage and resolve impairments with conservative but effective treatments such as joint mobilization, soft tissue release, movement re-education, and therapeutic exercise.
Physical therapists don’t mask your pain; they treat it. At MoveMend, we will help you move out of dysfunction, and on with your life.
