Physical therapists can help treat your knee pain

Have you ever thought about how much you use your knee every day? Walking your kids to the bus stop. Sitting down at the dinner table. Walking up the stairs to your bedroom. These are just some of the normal daily activities that require you to use your knee, and they can all become much harder to do if you develop knee pain. 

You’re definitely not alone if you’re experiencing knee pain. One medical study from 2006 reports that 18% of U.S. adults surveyed reported having knee pain in the past 30 days. Some cases of knee pain can go away on its own after some time. In other cases, you may require professional treatment for your knee pain. 

What can a physical therapist do to treat your knee pain?

Many cases of knee pain are related to overactivity or strain. These types of pain typically go away after a few days. But cases of chronic or severe knee pain require medical attention. If you have any doubts about the severity of your knee pain, you should seek a medical opinion.

If your knee pain is extremely uncomfortable or lasts for more than a few days, you should get the opinion of your primary care provider or a physical therapist. A physical therapist can help identify the cause of your knee pain and develop a treatment plan for it.

Common physical therapy methods that your treatment plan could include are:
