Three Ways We Treat Knee Pain

Knee pain can be caused by a wide range of issues, including repetitive motion injury, traumatic injury, age-related conditions like arthritis or even poor posture and biomechanics. By performing targeted stretches, manual techniques and strengthening exercises, a physical therapist can help you stabilize this important joint and improve your mobility.

Whether the cause of your knee pain is a healable injury or a nonreversible condition such as arthritis, physical therapy should be a fundamental part of a comprehensive care plan. If you’re a patient seeking knee pain treatment in or around Byron Center, Michigan, Advent Physical Therapy can help.

We’re sharing information about three primary treatment approaches therapists use at our Byron Center clinic and our other locations across west Michigan. If you have any questions or would like to learn more, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

These specific methods are designed to help knee pain

After receiving an evaluation and discussing the causes of your pain, you may be recommended for the following types of treatment:

  • Soft tissue mobilization — By gently stretching and massaging the tendons and ligaments around the knee, a physical therapist can increase range of motion and blood flow to the area.
  • Stability exercises — During in-office sessions, techniques to increase strength, balance and stability in the knee can be performed. Therapists can also instruct on how to safely perform these exercises at home.
  • Kinesiology taping — Applying a specially-designed type of tape to specific areas of the knee can help relieve pressure on this joint. Although often used by athletes, kinesiology taping can help anyone experiencing knee pain who must be mobile for periods of time.

There are a wide range of other physical therapy options for knee pain that a physical therapist can recommend based on your individual needs and medical history.
