Are you Experiencing Knee Pain?

Knee Pain and Physical Therapy

Are you experiencing knee pain? Do your knees pop or crack every time you stand up?

 

We greatly rely on the strength of our knees to accomplish daily tasks, when they get injured or start to wear, those activities can be difficult. There are many reasons one could be experiencing knee pain. It could be due to an injury, like a torn ligament, or a meniscal tear. Certain conditions, like arthritis, or gout, can also cause knee pain. Factors like being overweight, or having a job that requires you to put extra strain on your knees, might make you more susceptible to knee pain or injury. Athletes, particularly runners, are often at risk of developing knee conditions.

 

Very often a physical therapist will be needed to get your knee back in shape. A physical therapist can work with you to strengthen the muscles around the knee, helping to make it more stable. Working with a physical therapist will also prevent further injury. A physical therapist will evaluate your needs and help improve your range of motion through stretching and specific exercises. They can examine the way you move, and help improve your balance and coordination, ensuring the best mechanical movements.

 

Here at Reddy Care Physical and Occupational Therapy, we have advanced technology to aid in your healing process. NormaTec’s patented compression technology, for example, is a powerful component to our physical therapy treatments, helping to stimulate circulation in the limbs. Patients also benefit from our Class IV laser technology, which can alleviate pain and inflammation. If you are looking for a comprehensive treatment plan to manage your knee pain, give us a call. Don’t suffer, schedule your appointment today!
