Knee pain or injuries can have many different causes. That said, one of the most common causes of knee pain is being active. While living an active and healthy lifestyle is important to overall wellness, it can take a toll on the body. Depending on your preferred activities, your knees are often subject to a lot of abuse and stress or injuries related to repetitive motions. Over time, these smaller injuries or wear and tear damage can lead to osteoarthritis, which is the leading cause of knee pain for people over the age of 50.

Some causes of knee pain include:

  • Accident or injury
  • Repetitive motion
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Runner’s knee
  • Bursitis
  • Dislocated kneecap
  • Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome
  • Meniscus tear
  • Osgood-Schlatter disease
  • Patellar tendinitis
  • Knee replacement
  • Gout
  • Infections
  • Patellofemoral pain syndrome

The good news is that there are physical therapy exercises for knee pain and hands-on treatment techniques that can help relieve suffering and improve your range of motion and enjoyment of activities again.

Physical Therapy for Knee Pain and Injury Relief

Your knee is a wonderfully complex piece of human equipment. It bears a great deal of stress and strain on a regular basis and is quite vulnerable. The knee is where your tibia and femur (main leg bones) come together behind the kneecap. Each bone is covered with cartilage that absorbs shock while muscles, ligaments, and tendons hold everything together and keep it working properly. This leaves a lot of room for injuries, illness, accidents, and repetitive stress to wear on the body and cause pain.

Physical Therapy for Knee Arthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis that affects the knee. It’s a degenerative process where the cartilage in the joint gradually wears away. It usually affects people after they’ve reached 50 years of age, but it can occur earlier and it can be exacerbated by a very active lifestyle, repetitive motion, or being overweight. No matter what caused your osteoarthritis, there are therapeutic options available to relieve your pain and strengthen surrounding muscles.

Another type of knee arthritis that’s fairly common is rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an immune system disorder that causes the body to attack itself, the joints are particularly at risk. RA tends to be discovered in the knees at a younger age than osteoarthritis and requires a multi-pronged approach to treatment. One of those prongs will include arthritis physical therapy, specifically for knee arthritis.

Physical Therapy for Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery or arthroplasty is a procedure that’s used when other attempts at pain relief and restoring function have failed. An orthopedic surgeon will assess your knee’s range of motion, stability, and strength to determine if this surgery is right for you.

Physical therapy for knee replacement surgery is typically one of the first steps in your rehabilitation process. It’s important to begin moving and strengthening your knee again so you get the best results from your surgery. Connect with your surgeon or primary care physician if you need a referral for knee replacement physical therapy. We’re happy to work with you to explore your physical therapy insurance coverage.
