How Can Physical Therapy Help with Your Hip & Knee Pain?
In our assessment, our empathetic clinicians will ask you questions about your symptoms and goals. We’ll review any materials sent by your doctor (MD notes, X-rays, MRIs etc.,) and incorporate them into your care. In addition, they will look at how you move, your strength, your range of motion, and numerous other factors to formulate a shared plan of care. Treatment can include soft tissue massage, education, joint mobilizations, myofascial release, strengthening exercises, stretching, and electrical stimulation.
How Does Exercise Help?
Your physical therapist will give you home exercises to enhance strength and decrease pain while reducing your future risk of injury! Research supports that building strength in your hips and core can help relieve symptoms of knee pain better than just building up your knee muscles. Muscle strains, sprains, dislocations, tendinitis, arthritis, bursitis, cartilage injuries, patellofemoral pain syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome (IT Band Syndrome) and labral tears are all possible sources of your pain.
Where Does Hip & Knee Pain Come From?
Knee and hip pain often stem from muscular weakness that does not have the capacity for the load. Our therapists recognize the importance of the kinetic chain (one body part affecting another) and will work with you to make sure you’re strengthening all the muscles related to your condition.
