Watching this video will help you to get started down the path of relieving your knee pain, and preventing it in the future.
First and foremost
Make sure to get evaluated by your physician. If your knee pain is a result of something that requires surgery, then it’s best to make sure you get the help you need from a medical doctor, sooner than later.
When the doc clears you to progress back into physical therapy, and exercise, then the 4 Tips will pay huge dividends.
Treat the symptoms & most importantly…treat the cause.
A complete approach to treating and preventing knee pain includes both reducing the symptoms of the pain by promoting a favorable environment for the tissues to heal, and also correcting the causes of the stress that brought on the injury in the first place.
Knee pain, like most other joint pain, is a symptom of what’s happening above or below it, or both. Since the knee lies in-between the hips & the ankles, if one or both of those areas are restricted in their mobility, then the forces from physical activity can create tremendous stress on the connective tissues (tendon, ligament, and cartilage) that support the knee.
So listen to you what your body is telling you. If you feel even a twinge, then consider it your body’s warning that something worse may present itself if you don’t take the proper actions in the immediate future.
If you’re recognizing that you have either acute or chronic pain that’s keeping you from doing the activities you want, and achieving the level of fitness you’re looking for… then I’d like to help. Feel free to reach out and let me know your personal challenges.
