Experiencing Knee Pain? Physiotherapy for Knee Pain
Knee Pain: You’re not alone
Are you experiencing Knee Pain? Knee pain is a common complaint and affects roughly 27% of all adults. It is not unusual that numerous people experience similar knee pains that affect their daily life. Over usage of the knee such as hiking uphill or running often may lead to deterioration of the knee cartilage, resulting in knee pain.
The knee is one of the most used joints that we use on a daily basis. The knee is important for us to function in our daily lives and therefore is important to treat any symptoms before the pain get worse. If you do experience knee pain, it is important to seek treatment or further advice from a certified doctor or physiotherapist before the issue deteriorates.
Common Conditions of Knee Pain
What is Knee Pain Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy is the treatment of injury, disease, and disorders through physical methods such as exercises, massage, and other treatments. Physiotherapy does not include any medication or surgery to help alleviate patient issues but is able to refer you to a specialist if necessary.
A physiotherapist is able to alleviate these pains through a plethora of treatment techniques to restore, maintain, and help prevent impediments towards the patient’s mobility, function, and well-being.
How can Physiotherapy help with Knee Pain
Having knee pain that lasts for more than a few weeks can be a hindrance to your daily activity. Some activities as simple as walking up the stairs can be a daily pain. Apart from the physical toll on your body, living in constant pain can also impact your mental wellbeing negatively. A physiotherapist will be able to accurately diagnose the root cause of your knee pain, relieve the immediate issues and come up with a treatment plan to ensure that the pain does not recur. This will ensure that you will be able to get back to normal functioning levels as quickly as possible.
