Are you suffering with long term knee pain that is preventing you from being active and getting your workouts completed on a regular basis?
Do you feel lost, overwhelmed and confused about how to exercise safely with knee pain, and worried about making the problem worse or doing incurable damage?
Well our physical therapist team have worked with hundreds of people struggling with knee pain when exercising, and fortunately, we can recommend safe exercises for you whilst you treat the root cause of the knee pain so you can stay active.
We understand that exercise is important to you and you don't want to stop working out.
After all, exercise does the body good and not only helps us physically, but helps us mentally (by releasing endorphins, our body’s natural pain killers) to work through the stressors of normal life.
Should You Exercise With Knee Pain?
If you have problems with your knees, but love to work out it can be difficult to know what to do...
Should you exercise with knee pain? Or should you rest whilst you get treatment?
The answer depends on a number of factors such as the cause, and severity of your knee pain.
However, we regularly treat knee pain sufferers who love to keep active with running, sports and exercise classes and we always try to avoid stopping patients from doing what they love.
In the short term, your knee may benefit from a reduced amount of exercise, to allow for recovery and for our treatment to take effect.
If this is the case, our physical therapy team are able to help you understand how to exercise safely with knee pain so you don't miss out on the sports and exercise that you enjoy.
If you are anxious and worried about exercising and fearful that you could be creating a bigger problem that leaves you needing painkillers or injections in future, we recommend arranging a FREE knee pain consultation at our Crofton physical therapy clinic. In this visit, you can speak to a member of the team, and have your questions answered about your knee pain, and understand the options so you can exercise without knee pain.
