Dealing with knee pain?
End knee pain and stiffness without having to stop the activities you love.
How we can help:
It’s easy to think that knee pain is something that just comes with age, or will go away on its own. But if you’re living with painful knees, they’re painful and they ache, it’s hard to imagine what life would be like without pain.
If this is happening to you, we want you to know you’re not alone. We actually hear this all the time. In fact, knee pain is one of THE most common problems that we see in our clinic.
Maybe you are confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. Maybe you think you have to rest, or that you should be doing ‘this exercise’ and ‘that exercise’ to make it better. Maybe you’ve been to the doctor or another PT and what they offered just didn’t seem to help.
What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Knee Pain Quickly?
Here are four things you can do:
1. You need to make a decision about getting help. Many people rest for weeks, hoping that the pain will go away with time but then time goes by and they’re still putting up with it. Make the change today.
2. Do the RIGHT exercises. The key to preventing wear and tear is building up the muscles in the front and back of your thighs—the quadriceps and hamstrings. Exercises prescribed to you by a Physical Therapist will help reduce pain and allow you to move freely again quickly.
3. Wear the right shoes – High heels aren’t good for your knees, they’re not good for your feet. Also bad for knees: Shoes with no arch support, like loafers and ballet flats. And if you walk a lot, splurge on a good pair of kicks that can really cushion your steps.
4. Get real, hands-on Physical Therapy. PT is proven to help people with knee pain. If your knee pain is affecting your job, if it keeps you from staying active, and gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends – Physical Therapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.
