How To Stop Chronic, Daily Annoying Knee Pain WITHOUT Injections, WITHOUT Taking Painkillers and WITHOUT Having To Wear A Support or Brace...
Common Knee Conditions Treated Here:
Here is a list of some of the frequently treated knee conditions that we see in our clinic:
If you’re living with bad knees, they’re painful or they ache - it’s very easy to think that “knee pain is just something that comes with age”, it’s a bit of “wear and tear”, or that it’s nothing and it’ll go away on its own.
You can’t quite point your finger on why you’re feeling pain in your knees - but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better!
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone - we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, Knee Pain is one of THE most common problems that we see in our physical therapy clinic in the Morningside area of Sioux City and in our Akron location.
And when it comes to living with Knee Pain, everybody we see wants to know the answers to these questions:
“Why is this Happening to Me?”
“Why am I still suffering with Knee pain that keeps getting worse after putting up with it for 6 months - sometimes more?”...
Most people think that when they get Knee Pain, it’ll eventually “ease off” and go away on its own. That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, their knee pain will be gone and a thing of the past... But then 6 months later you’re still living with the discomfort of knee pain. Most times even worse than it was when it came on.
Does this sound Like You?
Another scenario we see in our physical therapy clinic is when people go to their doctor, and the well-meaning doctor tells them to “rest”, “try these painkillers” and/or “come back in 6 weeks if it’s no better”. But then 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the same doctor again because it hasn’t got any better! Only to be given ANOTHER prescription of even stronger pills, maybe an injection and maybe a knee support.
The truth is, all of these are attempting to treat symptomS, but do little to deal with the underlying problem. Because let’s face it, without taking those pain pills, the knee pain will come right back. Sometimes, this is the right course of action to take after other measures have been exhausted. Often it is not and should just be related to as a last resort before further invasive treatments are considered. Most physicians are good about steering clear of this and utilizing a more conservative course. In case they do not, it is worth having the discussion while you are in the office with them about how conservative treatments such at physical therapy can help.
Has That Ever Happened To You?
Maybe you are confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. You think you must rest because you’ve been told walking makes knee pain worse. Maybe that you should be doing ‘this exercise’ and ‘that exercise’ to make it better.
It’s very confusing to know exactly what to do given so many treatment options. You’re not sure what will work and what won’t. All you want to do is just avoid making knee pain worse!
And because of this confusion - this often leads people to procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help fix their Knee Pain. Worse, many people just end up accepting it as “part of life” - as if it’s normal, as if it “has” to be that way.
