Knee Pain

Click here to watch this month’s video where we discuss more about knee conditions that respond well to physical therapist directed treatment.

Knee pain is a common condition. When someone experiences serious or chronic knee pain, the tendency is to want to “see” what’s going on with an MRI. As noted in this research article1, an MRI examination is not currently as important for the diagnosis of knee injuries as expected by both medical and lay communities. Instead, an exam and treatment by a physical therapist is often the best first choice.

Is Pain or a Sedentary Lifestyle Limiting Your Health & Wellbeing? If So, We Can Help!

Sedentary Lifestyle

In a recent paper published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, the authors compared time sitting and exercise habits in 2016 to those in 2008. Sadly, Americans are sitting more than ever and they aren’t getting enough exercise either.

If pain is the reason you aren’t exercising, your physical therapist is ideally suited to not only help you with your pain but also transition you into an exercise program and a more active lifestyle.


Make sure you share this on social media and with your family and friends.

Until Next Month,
