A Message From Jacqualynn Gordon, PT, DPT & Joanna Rochelle, PT, DPT, Owners & Founders Of Onyx Physical Therapy & Wellness

If you have bad knees that hurt or ache, it’s easy to think that it’s “just something that comes with age,” that it’s “wear and tear,” or that it’s nothing and will go away on its own.

You can’t quite figure out why your knees are hurting, but it doesn’t seem to be getting better.

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone. We hear things like that all the time. In our physical therapy clinic, knee pain is one of THE most common problems we see.

And when it comes to living with knee pain, everyone we see wants to know the answers to these questions:

“Why Am I Going Through This?” or, “Why Do I Still Have Knee Pain That Keeps Getting Worse Even Though I’ve Been Dealing With It for at Least Six Months, and Sometimes More?”

Most people think that knee pain will “ease off” and go away on its own after a while. That one morning, they’ll wake up and their knee pain will be gone, as if by magic. Then, 6 months later, you still have knee pain, which is often worse than when it first started.

Does It Describe You?

Another situation we encounter frequently in our physical therapy clinic is when clients go to their doctors and are told to “relax,” “try these medicines,” and “come back in 6 weeks if it’s not better.” But then, 6 weeks later, they return to the same Doctor because it hasn’t improved, only to be given ANOTHER prescription for even stronger drugs and maybe a knee brace.

Have You Ever Experienced Something Similar?

Perhaps you’re perplexed because you’ve been provided conflicting information by several persons. Maybe you believe you need to relax because you’ve been informed that walking aggravates knee pain or that you should perform ‘this exercise’ and ‘that exercise’ to make it better.

It’s difficult to know what to do – and that’s only to prevent aggravating knee discomfort!

Because of this confusion, people frequently delay and put off making a choice on what to do to assist alleviate their knee pain. Worse, many individuals simply accept it as “part of life,” as if it were normal or “had” to be that way.

Is This How You Feel as Well?

If You Have Knee Pain, Here Are 7 More Reasons Why It May Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

1. You expected it to go away on its own, but it didn’t.

2. You went to the doctor, who ordered you to rest and take painkillers, but the drugs did nothing but ‘mask’ the pain, and as soon as they wore off, knee discomfort halted you in your tracks again.

3. You just accepted it because a family member or acquaintance informed you that everyone suffers knee pain as they get older.

4. You have previously sought assistance from other Healthcare Professionals or a Physiotherapist, but nothing they said or did appeared to help.

5. You’ve tried things like knee braces, but they’ve done little to alleviate your discomfort.

6. You thought resting would be a good idea because you were experiencing extreme pain and swelling in your knees, but it still annoys you on a regular basis.

7. You tried a couple ‘Youtube’ exercises, but they were unpleasant to do and did little to alleviate your discomfort.

If any of these things have occurred to you, we’d love to help you by encouraging you to schedule a call with one of our Physical Therapists in Encinitas, CA to find out what we can do for you.

The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things is really a GOOD THING since knowing what doesn’t work brings you closer to discovering what does!

"How Can I Get Rid of Knee Pain Quickly?"

So, here are four things you can do:

1. First and foremost, you must decide whether or not to seek treatment: So many individuals rest for weeks, expecting that the pain would ‘simply go away with time,’ only to find that 6 months later, nothing has changed… Alternatively, the discomfort and swelling worsen.

2. Next, do the RIGHT exercises: One of the best things you can do to help ease your knee pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises – the right exercises given to you by a Physiotherapist will help reduce pain, allow you to move freely again quickly – and ensure that the problems don’t return anytime soon.

3. Avoid sitting in unnatural postures: You and I were not made to sit. When you sit and bend your knees, you are putting your knees in strange, unnatural positions that they are not designed to be in for lengthy periods of time. It would be extremely beneficial if you were given proper strengthening exercises for better posture, in addition to hands-on treatment, in order to make you active and healthy as soon as feasible.

4. Participate in “hands-on” Physical Therapy: Physical Therapy has been shown to aid patients with knee discomfort. In fact, it’s one of the most prevalent ailments we face with our athletes and active individuals at Onyx Physical Therapy & Wellness. If your knee discomfort is interfering with your employment, preventing you from being active, or threatening your independence and preventing you from spending meaningful time with family and friends, Physical Therapy can help you get back to living the life you deserve as soon as possible.
