One in four adults suffer from chronic knee pain, and it’s no surprise. The knee is one of the largest and most complicated joints in our body, and it is almost constantly pressed into duty, every time we sit down, stand up, walk, run, go up or down stairs, or bend. All that stress and strain on the muscles, ligaments, and bones take their toll over time in a variety of ways.
If you are in search of a way of relieving that nagging knee pain without surgery or medication, the physical therapist at Nevada Rehabilitation Centers can introduce a pathway to healing that uses the power of your own body. Working with your doctor, we can identify your body’s structural imbalances that may be causing discomfort by overworking some parts of your knees without engaging other parts. Working one-on-one with our staff, we’ll treat your pain before guiding you through a stretching and strengthening regime that gradually brings the complex parts of the knee joint into harmony. We’ll provide a handy take-home guide to continue your exercises between sessions and after our work together has concluded.
Chronic knee pain is commonly caused by sprains, strains, tears and arthritis. Sometimes a lack of exercise, or overuse of some muscles during exercise or athletics while underusing others, may be the problem. Muscles that are too tight from not being properly stretched can contribute to the problem, as well.
If you’ve tried and failed to heal those painful knees on your own, don’t despair! Working with a licensed, experienced physical therapist in a clean, well-equipped facility like ours can make all the difference. We believe the body can heal itself, but it needs to be shown the way. Let our physical therapist Nevada Rehabilitation Centers be your guide to pain relief and wellness. Please don’t hesitate to contact us today to schedule an evaluation!
