Find relief with Grelot Physical Therapy:
At Grelot Physical Therapy, we are equipped to treat any hip or knee pain you may be experiencing. At your initial appointment, you will be greeted by one of our Mobile physical therapists, who will examine your hips and knees for any structural damage or misalignment. They will also evaluate your gait, stance, posture, and range of motion. After your evaluation is complete, your physical therapist will design a personalized treatment plan, based on your needs and goals. Treatment plans will focus on relieving pain, normalizing joint function, and relieving any abnormal stresses on your hips and knees.
Your treatment plan will include targeted stretches and exercises, aimed at stabilizing any weakness in the hips and knees. The exercises may vary depending on your condition; for example, research has demonstrated that those suffering from kneecap pain tend to respond better to exercises that focus on strengthening both the hips and knees, rather than just focusing on the knees alone. Core strengthening exercises targeting the lower abdominal muscle groups, lower back muscle groups, or pelvic muscles may also be prescribed. Core exercises are aimed at improving your posture and equalizing the weight load on both sides of your body.
You may be prescribed with additional treatments as our physical therapist deems fit, such as massage therapy, taping, ice, and heat therapy, dry needling or other soft tissue treatments. These are all aimed at alleviating your pain and promoting the healing of your damaged hip and/or knee issues.
If you are suffering from hip and/or knee pain, don’t hesitate to contact Grelot Physical Therapy today for a consultation. Treatment plans will be discussed with one of our licensed Mobile physical therapists, so you don’t have to wait for relief.
What causes knee pain?
Your knees are hinge joints that allow for the forward-and-backward motions within the joint. The knee is one of the largest joints in your body, made up of a complex system of bones, tendons, and ligaments. Because of this, the knee can be easily injured due to overexertion or repetitive motions. Additionally, knee pain can be caused due to an underlying ailment. Some of the most common causes of knee pain are sprains, strains, fractures, tears, dislocation, tendinitis, bursitis, and arthritis.
How long should knee pain last?
Some knee pain can ease on its own. However, if you notice persistent pain, you should contact a physical therapist. Many people try to push through the pain that they feel; however, this can actually cause an issue to worsen and become more problematic. Sharp or dull pain in the knee should be paid attention to and not pushed through. If pain persists, especially for three months or longer, it is in your best interest to contact a physical therapist, as that can be an indication of a chronic condition.
Is walking good for knee pain?
Knee pain can be debilitating, making it difficult to walk, run, and move. While exercise can certainly help heal the root cause of your knee pain, it is important to make sure to only do so under the discretion of your physical therapist. Your treatment plan will largely consist of targeted exercises and manual treatments; however, additional pain relief modalities may also be added as your physical therapist deems fit. This will help you improve any problem areas and prevent further injury from occurring.
What is the best therapy for knee pain?
Our licensed physical therapists will examine your knee for signs of misalignment or structural damage, in addition to examining your stance, posture, gait, and range of motion. After your physical exam is complete, your physical therapist will prescribe a physical therapy plan for you, aimed at relieving unnatural stresses and strains, and normalizing your joint function. Treatment plans for knee pain typically include activity modification, manual therapy, strength and capacity training, range of motion restoration, graded exposure to previously painful activities, and patient education regarding activity modification.
