Say Goodbye To Chronic Knee Pain With Physical Therapy!
Do you search the grocery store parking lot for a space close to the entrance? Do you ever decline invites to engage in activities you enjoy doing out of concern for your knees? If you are nodding, you should get treatment from MoveMend Rehab and Performance in Seattle, WA for your knee pain.
Finding knee pain relief can be challenging, and knee discomfort can be very uncomfortable. Knee discomfort might make it difficult for you to achieve your goals and fully enjoy life.
The good news is that our Seattle, WA physical therapists can help you find knee pain relief without the use of dangerous drugs or invasive surgery.
Why does my knee hurt?
There are several reasons you may be experiencing knee pain, so it’s normal to be unsure about what’s causing your symptoms.
Your knee is a hinge joint that can only move forward and backward. You should be able to stand, walk, run, and dance with ease if your knees are in proper alignment. If you have knee pain, you will not be able to move as freely as you would like.
Knee pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
Tendons are thick, fibrous structures that connect muscles to bones. Tendonitis can occur when the tendons become irritated and inflamed. The patellar tendon connects the patella (kneecap) to the shinbone, allowing you to kick, run, and jump. Patellar tendinitis is common in runners, skiers, cyclists, and those who engage in jumping sports and activities.
Four ligaments connect our thigh bone to our shinbone, one of which is the ACL. People who participate in sports that require quick changes in direction are more likely to suffer an ACL injury.
The meniscus is a shock absorber located between your shinbone and thighbone. If you twist your knee quickly while bearing weight on it, the thick, rubbery cartilage may rip.
A thorough evaluation by a licensed physical therapist at our Seattle, WA physical therapy clinic is the best way to determine the true cause of your knee pain.
An injury can cause inflammation in the bursae, which are small sacs of fluid that cushion the outside of your knee joint. Bursitis prevents tendons and ligaments from smoothly gliding over the joint.
If you fall or are in a car accident, the bones of the knee, particularly the kneecap (patella), can be damaged. A knee fracture can occur simply by taking the wrong step if you have osteoporosis.
No matter what the cause of your knee pain may be, the physical therapists at MoveMend Rehab and Performance are here to help you find the relief you deserve.
