What Causes Knee Pain?
Knee pain can come from ligaments, muscles, or bones that comprise the knee joint. The knee is the main connection point between the hip and ankle, so it gets used often. We have several different ligaments, muscles, and tendons that surround the knee that can become injured and cause pain. It may be due to a specific incident or general use over time.
The main job of the knee is to allow us to be stable when walking and standing. Because there are many ligaments, muscles, and tendons around the knee, it is important to identify the source of your pain.
The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts when it comes to diagnosing and treating knee pain. We will help you improve your pain, regain mobility, and return to all the movement-related activities that fulfill your life.
Common Symptoms of Knee Pain
- Pain in the front, back, or side of the knee.
- Decreased strength is secondary to pain.
- Difficulty walking and standing due to pain.
- Decreased range of motion of the knee.
- Sharp pain with bending or extending the knee.
How to Treat Knee Pain
The first step in treating your knee pain is to identify the type of injury that has occurred and what areas have been affected. Your physical therapist can help address the underlying symptoms with exercise and manual therapy to help improve your symptoms.
From there, it is essential to address the mobility and strength surrounding your knee, both above and below the joint. This often comes from specific functional exercises designed to improve your body’s brain-muscle connection.
The physical therapists at Pro Staff will help you understand what is going on first and address all your specific needs. We know that movement is essential for our patients, and knee pain can be hard to deal with. Every knee is different, so we want to ensure we are helping you treat all your specific needs.
How long will it take for me to get better?
Recovery from a knee-related injury can vary a lot based on what tissue type has been damaged. When you first meet with your physical therapist, they will better understand what tissue needs to be treated and how long it may take to return to your movement goals.
