Physical Therapy For Knee Pain Oklahoma City, Edmond & Surrounding Cities
There are many possible reasons that you could be experiencing knee pain, but no matter the cause, our physical therapists at PT are excited to help you recover! Physical therapy sessions for knee pain will differ based on what specific structure or injury is causing your pain, but all of our treatment plans will be developed with your priorities and goals in mind.
Common Knee Problems & Causes
Our knees are an important body part that allows us to walk, run, and carry out all of our day-to-day tasks. Unfortunately, because our knees support all of our body weight and have multiple muscle groups attached to them, they undergo a lot of stress, force, and torsion. These different stresses can cause degenerative changes over time, or can lead to inflammation and overuse of muscles and tendons. As we age, the cartilage in our knees becomes thinner, which decreases the amount of support and cushion that is present in the joint, causing pain with walking and running. For athletes, rapid increases in training frequency or intensity can cause the tendons at the knee to become overloaded and inflamed. Regardless of the cause of your knee pain, the physical therapists at PT Central are excited to help!
Treatments For Knee Joint Issues
When you visit a PT Central clinic, your physical therapist will ask questions and perform tests to determine the cause of your knee pain. Once they understand the problem they will develop a treatment plan to reduce your pain in the hopes of long-term recovery. If you are experiencing degeneration in your knees, it is important to strengthen the muscles that support the joint, and to participate in a consistent exercise program. If you are an athlete with an overuse injury, your physical therapist may recommend rest, along with specific strengthening and manual therapy interventions. These are just a couple of examples, but our PTs are trained to provide specialized care to address a wide variety of knee conditions!
