  1. 1. PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR KNEE PAIN
  2. 2. Adults frequently complain of knee pain, which is typically brought on by regular wear and tear from daily activities including walking, bending, standing, and lifting. Running and sports involving jumping or fast pivots increase the risk of knee pain and issues in athletes. But whether knee pain is brought on by ageing or an injury, it can be bothersome and even crippling in some cases.
  3. 3. What are some common knee problems? Many knee problems are a result of the aging process and continual wear and stress on the knee joint (such as, arthritis). Other knee problems are a result of an injury or a sudden movement that strains the knee. Common knee problems include the following:
  4. 4. Common knee problems include the following: Sprained or strained knee ligaments and/or muscles. A sprained or strained knee ligament or muscle is usually caused by a blow to the knee or a sudden twist of the knee.
  5. 5. Symptoms often include pain, swelling, and difficulty in walking. TORN CARTILAGE. TRAUMA TO THE KNEE CAN TEAR THE MENISCI (PADS OF CONNECTIVE TISSUE THAT ACT AS SHOCK ABSORBERS AND ALSO ENHANCE STABILITY). CARTILAGE TEARS CAN OFTEN OCCUR WITH SPRAINS. TREATMENT MAY INVOLVE WEARING A BRACE DURING AN ACTIVITY TO PROTECT THE KNEE FROM FURTHER INJURY. SURGERY MAY BE NEEDED TO REPAIR THE TEAR.
  6. 6. How are knee problems diagnosed? In addition to a complete medical history and physical exam, other tests for knee problems may include: X-ray. This test uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to make images of internal tissues, bones, and organs onto film. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This test uses large magnets, radiofrequencies, and a computer to make detailed images of organs and structures within the body; can often determine damage or disease in a surrounding ligament or muscle.
  7. 7. Which kind of knee pain do you experience? It's crucial to identify if knee pain is acute, subacute, or chronic if you have it. This can aid in directing accurate diagnosis and therapy. 1 Pain that is sudden and severe, occurring 1–7 days after an accident. Before starting any motion during this period, you should rest the knee and allow the wounded structures to recover. Subacute Pain: This develops two to six weeks following an injury. To aid in regaining mobility, now is a good time to start making mild movements around the knee. Chronic knee pain: discomfort that lasts longer than 8 to 12 weeks. Your healthcare provider should assess any persistent knee pain. After a focused examination has been completed, your physical therapy for knee pain in michigan can work with you to initiate the correct treatment. It is very important for you to be active and engaged in the program. Often, exercises to help strengthen and improve the mobility of the knee will be prescribed. You may be required to perform exercises at home as well as part of a home exercise program.
