Find Knee Pain Relief with Knee Therapy
Are you scheduled for a total knee replacement, suffering from Runner’s Knee, or limping through undiagnosed knee pain?
At Performance Physical Therapy and Sports Rehab, we will work with your doctor, or use specialized testing to determine the possible cause of your pain, and develop an individualized program for you to lead you on the path to knee pain relief.
Some causes for knee pain may include:
This is cartilage in the knee that provides a cushion for joint stability. It is often injured during a twisting motion, commonly seen in athletes of cutting or jumping sports.
This is an inflammation or irritation of a tendon, a thick cord that attaches bone to muscle. It is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the affected area, or from a sudden more serious injury.
Also known as ACL, PCL, LCL, and MCL, depending on the ligament injured, these ligaments can be overstretched or torn by twisting, hyper-extending, or sudden stopping.
Total Knee Replacement
Most doctors recommend physical therapy within the first 6 weeks after surgery. It is a crucial part of rehabilitation to regain the strength and range of motion in the knee.
Most sprains come from severe force or a sudden twist of the knee, causing one or more of the four main ligaments to overstretch and potentially tear.
Pre/Post Surgery Rehab
Rest is important prior to surgery, to minimize risk for addition injury from excessive use. Post-surgery rehab provides manual therapy treatments and stretches that increase range of motion and regain strength in the affected area.
No matter what is causing your pain, our physical therapist will help you strengthen your knee, increase your range of motion, and promote healing and knee pain relief with manual therapy techniques, temperature therapy, exercises, and more.
