Knee Pain - Breakaway Physical Therapy can help

If You’re Living With Bad Knees, They’re Painful Or They Ache - It’s Very Easy To Think That It’s “Just Something That Comes With Age”, It’s A Bit Of “Wear And Tear”, Or That It’s Nothing And It’ll Go Away On Its Own.

You may feel as though there is no particular reason as to why you are feeling pain in your knees – but it just won’t go away.

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone - we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, Knee Pain is one of THE most common problems that we see in our physical therapy office in Crofton, Maryland.

And when it comes to living with Knee Pain, everybody we see wants to know

"Why is This Happening to me?"

or

“Why am I still suffering with Knee pain that keeps getting worse after dealing with it for 6 months OR longer?"...

Most people hope, that when they get Knee Pain, it’ll eventually go away on its own. That one morning they will wake up and like “magic”, Knee Pain will be a thing of the past... But then 6 months later you begin to realize that you are still living day to day with discomfort of knee pain that is often even worse than it was when it began.

Does that sound Like You?

Does it seem like no one is really listening to you and dismisses you? Everyone tells you “it’s just a fact of life as you get older”. Did you go to the Doctors’, and the Doctor tells you to rest and “try these painkillers or muscle relaxers” and “see how it goes”? We hear about these encounters every day at our Physical Therapy office in Crofton.

Then, often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it hasn’t gotten any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills and advised EVEN MORE rest.

Has this type of thing Ever happened to you?

Have you been told a lot of different things by different people? Well, it’s easy to get confused because lots of people are happy to give you their advice and opinions. The internet is a great place to find “advice”, but it’s important to understand that it is not all credible information.

Maybe your research has led you to believe that you should walk less because it will make your knee pain worse. Maybe you have read that there is one magic exercise that will be perfect to relieve your knee pain immediately.

It’s very confusing to know exactly what to do to prevent your knee pain from worsening. It’s confusing to figure out where your knee pain is originating from and what is causing the discomfort. All this confusion leads people to put off making a decision about what to do to help make their knee pain better. Even worse, many people end up accepting it as “part of life” as a normal way to age and change and that it must be that way.

Is This How You Feel Too?

If you’re currently living with Knee pain, here’s 7 more reasons why it could be lasting longer than it should:

  • frown-o
    1. You thought it would go away on its own – but unfortunately it didn’t.
  • frown-o
    2. You went to the Doctor who told you to rest and take some medications - but the pills did nothing to help, or they just ‘masked’ the pain - and as soon as they wore off Knee Pain stopped you in your tracks again.
  • frown-o
    3. A family member, or friend, told you that everybody gets Knee pain as they age and that you should just accept it.
  • frown-o
    4. You got help from other Healthcare Professionals or a Physical Therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help or make a difference.
  • frown-o
    5. You’ve tried using things like a Knee brace but they’ve done nothing to help make the pain any better.
  • frown-o
    6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest your joints because you experienced intense pain and swelling in your knees, but it still irritates you daily.
  • frown-o
    7. You tried a few exercises from ‘YouTube’ - but they felt painful when you did them, and didn’t help to reduce your aches and pains...

What can I do to get rid Of My Knee Pain  Quickly?...

Well, here's 4 things you can do:

  • 1. First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people rest their knees for weeks with inactivity, hoping that the pain will ‘just go away with time’. However after 6 months of the same nagging pain and swelling, it’s frustrating that nothing has changed…or it has worsened
  • 2. Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you ease your Knee pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises - the right exercises given to you by a Physical Therapist will help reduce pain, decrease your swelling and allow you to move freely again quick - and make sure that the problems don’t come back any time soon.
  • 3. Avoid sitting in awkward positions – to be honest, the human body was not designed to sit. When you sit with your knee bent, you’re putting your knees in awkward positions - which knees aren’t built to be in for too long. It would really help if you were given the correct strengthening exercises for better posture, in combination with hands-on treatment, to get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.
  • 4. Get real, “hands-on” Physical Therapy – Physical Therapy is proven to help people with Knee pain. In fact, at Breakaway Physical Therapy it’s one of the most common issues we see people suffer with. If your Knee pain is affecting your job, if it stops you from remaining active, or if it threatens your independence and gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends – Physical Therapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.

Lisa

Lisa

50's from Crownsville, MD

My knee needed to be replaced. I was in a lot of pain and my mobility was very limited. I couldn't do anything. I wasn't able to exercise. I couldn't even walk around the block without pain. Going up and down the stairs was painful, getting in and out of the chair was painful.

Kim

Kim

50's from Upper Marlboro, MD

I didn't want to go to grocery store because I wasn't sure I could make my way through the aisles before it hurt so bad that I needed to sit down. Some days I couldn't even leave home. I was pretty much a house hermit. I was at home every day for about three and a half months.

Heidi

Heidi

60's from Bowie, MD

I was having a lot of bone on bone and muscle pain and tightness and just general discomfort walking. I knew I would be babysitting soon full time, so I wanted to get ahead of the curve and actually see if I could relieve the pain. I knew that what I was doing wasn't working.
