Help reduce daily hip and knee pain with proven methods.
Updated: Jun 30, 2021
There are many causes of hip and knee pain, from sports injuries, advancing in age and arthritis to repetitive motion injuries. There may be one or several reasons why you are experiencing pain. A physical therapist can examine your movement to help identify things that are contributing to your pain, such as poor posture or unhealthy movement patterns.
Once they identify the issue, our physical therapists can tell you how to correct the contributing pain factors and may be able to give you the relief you are looking for.
Loss of muscular strength can contribute significantly to hip and knee pain because the weaker your muscles get, the more stress is put on your joints. Physical therapy centers around specific exercises designed to target various muscles and strengthen them so that they better support your joints.
Often hip and knee pain can lead to loss of mobility and flexibility – which then increases the wear on your joints and leads to even more pain. Our treatment models include a combination of many disciplines. We prescribe many different ways to reset a muscle:
Mechanical pressure - Rolling with a massage or lacrosse ball to release tension
Laser or electrical stimulation - To decrease nerve sensitivity
Exercise - To improve your mobility and flexibility so that you can move your limbs and joints in the fullest range of motion.
Dry Needling - Our most effective form of getting rid of tight, painful or hypersensitive muscles and increasing movement patterns.
Our goal is to heal your injuries over the long term. Various exercises and treatments will steadily improve your condition so that you experience less pain on a daily basis. As your body gets stronger and more mobile, you are likely to experience less pain in your hips and knees.
