Physical Therapy For Knee Pain

Knee injuries happen to many people of all ages in different ways. Whether you’re a young athlete recovering from a recent ACL injury and looking for a rehabilitation strategy that could get you back in sport pain-free and in better shape or an old person looking for a remedy to manage a persistent knee pain due to arthritis, Physical Therapy is the best treatment method. Here, we show you how and why…

Physical Therapy Treats Various Knee Conditions

 

Knee pain may be caused by injuries or diseases. It can be traumatic resulting from accidents or non-traumatic due to repetitive stress sustained in daily living. Some of the common knee conditions treated by physical therapy are:

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury

Collateral ligament injuries (MCL and LCL)

Jumper’s Knee (patellar tendinitis)

Runner's Knee (Iliotibial Band Syndrome)

Patellofemoral pain syndrome

Patellar dislocation and fracture

Meniscal injuries

Arthritic conditions (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis)

Bursitis

Baker's cyst

Post-operative rehabilitation of knee injuries and diseases (reconstructive surgeries, knee replacements)

And more

Physical therapy will address the symptoms and limitations related to these conditions, such as inflammation, muscle weakness, joint limitations, balance and gait issues, and many more… not only your knee pain…

Physical Therapy Does Not Just Treat Your Knee Pain

 

Our Physical Therapists specializing in knee pain will dig deeper to find the root cause of your knee pain. The areas that might affect your sports performance or the daily functioning of your knees will be assessed. The physical therapist will help you to rebuild your knee strength and flexibility, as well as improve the other components of function such as balance, coordination, agility, and endurance…

 

 

Physical Therapy Is Cost-Effective

 

Numerous researches that looked at the effectiveness of physical therapy against common surgical procedures demonstrated favorable results. In one study (1), outcomes of physical therapy were found to be comparable in effects with arthroscopic partial meniscectomy in patients with osteoarthritis, while another study (2) found its high cost-effectiveness when compared against the rate of the same surgical procedure for meniscal injuries. Furthermore, physical therapy can provide you with the same pain relief as any knee procedures without the side effects and dependence on anti-inflammatory medications, opioids, and high expenses of pharmacologic use of injectables and surgeries.

Physical Therapy is safe, inexpensive, and effective!!!

 

 

Physical Therapy Is Tailored To Your Needs

 

Our Physical Therapists utilize a combination of various modalities to treat your knee conditions, ranging from electrical stimulation, Class IV laser (click HERE for more details) to therapeutic exercises, manual therapies, and other biomechanical approaches.

They will design a rehabilitation program based on your individual needs and specific to your knee condition. Physical Therapy is individualized!!!

 

 

Physical Therapy Evaluation And Treatment Are Comprehensive

 

Based on the results of the evaluation, our physical therapists will develop a treatment program designed precisely to your needs and requirements to guarantee a fast and safe return to sports or physical activities.  To maximize the benefit of knee physical therapy and to improve the outcome, our physical therapist will give you a list of exercises to do at home, as well as the activities that you might need to modify or avoid.
