Sprain / Strain

Sprains and strains can be caused by sudden over-stretching of the tissues. Swelling starts as part of the inflammation process, causing pain that increases with movement difficulty for the injured area until treated by our doctor.

When treating sprains or strains in the knee, it is important to rest and elevate them. With severe limitations on movement you should see our physical therapists immediately so that we may help decrease any pain/discomfort. In some cases, the tearing can be complete and even be in need of surgical repair.

How physical therapy helps

Meniscus Injury

The meniscus is a ring of cartilage on the lower part if your knee that sits in between two bones: large femur and tibia. It provides cushioning for this joint while guiding movement with its outside connections to tough ligaments around it. The inside or medial side which bears more weight than its lateral counterpart due often sustaining damage.

The meniscus is a vital part of our knees that allows us to smoothly bend and extend them. If there are any injuries, poor alignment or weak muscles in this area then it can become bruised which will slow down the healing process for torn pieces as well depending on where exactly these damages were located within your body.

Meniscus injuries are often mild to moderate, but sometimes they require surgery. After surgery, it's important for patients to get physical therapy in order to have a full recovery, this will help them learn how their body moves again and gain strength through exercise programs.

How physical therapy helps

Physical therapy is an important part of recovering from a meniscus injury. Most injuries are mild and involve small tears, bruising, or irritation to the knee joint's ligaments as well as weakened muscle support around it; by pinpointing these mechanisms we can focus on reducing your pain quickly with treatments that address specific areas where there has been damage.

If surgery is necessary, we work closely with your physician and the rehabilitation protocol. The primary focus is on eliminating swelling quickly, resolving pain, improving range of motion, restoring normal walking and strengthening the supporting muscles around the knee. We then show you what to do to maintain a healthy knee with physical activities and sports. Call us today to see how we can help you recover quickly from a meniscus injury.

Tendonitis

The ending of the word "itis" is inflammation. Therefore, tendonitis means that a person has inflammation in their tendons which connect muscles to bones and can cause pain. This thick strap runs overtop your kneecap and connect to the tibia below, giving rise to some serious problems like jumper’s knee where there's too much pressure placed upon these areas during activity.

How physical therapy helps

Many people get tendonitis due to abnormal movement mechanics, weakness and pain. Our trained physical therapists can help you find out what's wrong. We'll use modalities like Physical Therapy techniques that alleviate your discomfort while hands-on therapy improves joint alignment for more normal walking practice without getting hurt in the process.

Finally gentle strengthening exercises combined with some coordination training will restore stability around our patient’s painful joints which prevent reoccurrence of symptoms. To discover how we can help your knee tendonitis call us today!

ACL Tears

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most common knee ligament to be injured, and it can happen with sports or falls. The injury typically occurs when you land on your side while planting one foot at ground level.

ACL injuries can be sprained which means they're still intact. If you rupture your ACL, it's completely broken and when an individual has experienced this type of injury there will typically swelling in the knee as well as instability while walking or running due to how severe their grade was classified at receiving treatment. Grades 1 and 2 are often treatable without surgery, while grade 3 is most often a complete tear and typically requires surgery.

Sprains are one of the most common injuries in sports, but with proper care and treatment they can be avoided. A sprain occurs when an overstretching ligament causes micro-tearing which leads to pain along inflammation as well increased risk for future problems at that position if not treated properly.

With grade 3 ACL tears, surgery is most likely needed to repair. Physical therapy is vital to the rehabilitation after this surgery. Recovery does take time and the goal is to protect the surgery site, maintaining stability.

How physical therapy helps

Our physical therapists work closely with patients of all ages, especially those who have sustained ACL tears through sports activities. When you come in after an injury to your knee us we will examine the stability and integrity off this crucial ligament so that it may be best resolved pain-free while also returning back into daily living routines as soon as possible A Grade 1 or 2 sprain can usually go without needing surgery but our team wants nothing more than giving each individual person options regarding what's right for you.

We are committed to your success following surgery. Rest assured that we will work closely with the rehabilitation protocols set by your physician and gradually increase movement in order for you attain maximum function again as soon possible.

The best way to get back on track after an ACL tear is with the help of a professional. Contact us today for more information about ACL tears treatment.

PCL Tears

The PCL is a key ligament in checking the backward sliding of your tibia bone on top of the femur. It can be injured with sports or falls, especially when you take a blow to the front knee while planting your foot down and kicking up - this makes it more susceptible than other areas since there isn't much protection for these types of injuries.

When a PCL injury involves a sprain, there is typically swelling that occurs in the knee and you may experience instability when walking. Sprains are classified according to their severity with grades 1 through 3: grade one being less severe while grades two or three can be more serious depending on how they're treated ( may require surgery).

Sprains are painful because the ligament is overstretched and micro-tearing results. Ligaments don't get much blood flow, so they depend on joint fluid for survival - which means healing takes longer than other tissues. Depending on how bad your sprain was might affect whether or not you have future injuries too.

Grade 3 PCL tears often require surgery to repair them. After the procedure, physical therapy can help with rehabilitation and recovery time in order for you to get back on your feet again as quickly as possible.

MCL Tears

The Medial collateral ligament (MCL) is an important structure that checks side-to-side sliding of the femur bone on the tibia in the knee. This can be injured with sports or falls, especially if you get hit outside your feet while planted firmly down and it's also common for this type of injury along comes together with the medial meniscus.

When a MCL injury involves a sprain, there is typically swelling that occurs in the knee and you may experience instability when walking. Sprains are classified according to their severity with grades 1 through 3: grade one being less severe while grades two or three can be more serious depending on how they're treated ( may require surgery).

This can be injured with sports or falls, especially if you get hit outside your feet while planted firmly down and it's also common for this type of injury along comes together with the medial meniscus.


When an LCL injury involves a sprain, there is typically swelling that occurs in the knee and you may experience instability when walking. Sprains are classified according to their severity with grades 1 through 3: grade one being less severe while grades two or three can be more serious depending on how they're treated ( may require surgery).

As time progresses, we work with you to gain your strength back in the knee, improve stability of the joint, get you back to walking normally and eventually back into advanced movements including running. Call us today to discover how we can help you bounce back after a LCL tear.

Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement surgery is a highly specialized procedure that can be needed when the patient's bone structure has suffered a significant trauma or due to severe arthritis. In this operation, the ends of the femur and tibia bones as well backside kneecap are replaced with a new prosthesis; there have been many advances allowing less invasive procedures resulting in faster recovery times.

Having physical therapy before surgery can help you walk faster and with less pain after your procedure. The leading cause for not having this kind of pre-surgery treatment is that people don't know about it or simply put off going because they're afraid it will make things worse.

How physical therapy helps

We work with your physician's protocols to ensure that you are getting the best rehabilitation possible. We will start physical therapy as soon as possible after surgery.

The day after your procedure, you'll typically start physical therapy in the hospital. After progressing from there it is very important to continue with outpatient care at our practice.

Your physician will help you resume most normal activities pain-free once the rehabilitation cycle is complete. We make sure that we continue to reinforce safety precautions while healing, so your knee movement won't be limited. Call us today to learn more about our post-surgery rehabilitation program.

Poor Balance / Risk of Falling

It's estimated that one out of three adults aged 65 and older will fall each year. Falls among this population are the leading cause of both fatal injuries, as well as nonfatal ones such as arthritis which can affect balance naturally due to slowing down reflexes or weakness in muscles over time; changes caused by certain medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injuries, nerve injuries, back problems and much more.

When we can't balance well, it affects every part of our body. We rely on the ability to perceive movement through nerve sensors in joints and muscles as well as vision with assistance from the vestibular system inside the ear; when anyone these factors are not working properly the chances are high that someone will fall over due to an imbalance!

The good news is that there is a lot than can easily be done to improve your ability to balance, which improves your walking and makes the risk of falling significantly less.

How physical therapy helps

The physical therapist will carefully evaluate the way you walk, your balance and coordination skills as well as your range of motion to determine what treatments may be most beneficial. In some cases where there is a neurological condition affecting these areas-more testing might need to do such visual tracking or vestibular system function which contribute greatly towards achieving proper standing upright posture again.

Physical therapists work to help you maintain your balance and reduce the risk of falls. They will thoroughly evaluate how well you walk, coordinated movement in all parts of the body (including arms), strength limitations caused by injury or disease along with range-of-motion issues that could be related to chronic pain management problems. Call us today to learn more how we can improve your balance and walking!

Knee Pain

The knee is a very unique and complicated joint. It has to bear the weight of our bodies while moving through an incredible range- often 130 degrees or more! When running, this can absorb up to 6 times the weight of your body, which means that at times things may go wrong leading to painful knees for some people.

Knee pain is often caused by the loss of smaller movements such as side-to sides, back and forth, or rotating. This can lead to tight tissues around your knee if you don't stretch regularly with particular attention given to strengthening muscles that affect how well our joints move in different directions; it's important for everyone who spends time on their feet at work.

The normal response to inflammation is pain. This can be felt around the knee, and it increases when you move quickly or walk for long periods because that extra stress on your joints causes them friction against one another which in turn makes this area soreness worse than others do otherwise would have been caused by just being active throughout everyday life without any issues at all until now.

How physical therapy helps

Knee pain is a serious issue that many people deal with. And while there are treatment options, physical therapy can be an important part in helping you get back on your feet and move freely again.

We have a specialty in pinpointing the exact mechanism of why you're experiencing knee pain. We'll evaluate your posture, motion, and strength levels as well as how mobile or tight each joint is to find out what's causing it all.

Our physical therapists will help you get back on your feet by performing hands-on therapy to improve knee joint mobility and reduce pain. We use modalities such as ultrasound, which can help reduce swelling or discomfort in the area around our joints; we'll also perform specific exercises that address any unbalanced muscles hurting more than they should. Call us today to find out how we can quickly and effectively alleviate your knee pain.

Post-surgery Rehab

Knee injuries can be very serious and require surgery. After a procedure to fix your knee, you may experience limited movement due to the amount of force it takes for bones in this area to break or move out from their normal position causing pain when walking on uneven surfaces such as concrete stairs with carpeting at ground level which puts more pressure than usual onto those areas near our feet while climbing up steps.

How physical therapy helps

Physical therapy is critical after knee surgery. We progress you through a structured rehabilitation program to restore pain-free range of motion while maintaining recovery protocols from your physician, and finally improve walking coordination, balance, and strength so that the patient can return to their normal activities without experiencing any postural discomfort or functional limitations caused by this condition. Call us today to learn more about our post-surgery rehabilitation program.

Difficulty Walking

It takes us, humans, at least 12 months to learn how to walk and run. This is because it requires a lot of balance, ability in space (proprioception), and feeling where one's joints are located or moving about--known as "kinesthesia." It also needs a good range of motion along with strength for these tasks.

As we get older, with declining activity or after an injury our walking pattern can change. This leads to pain in the knee and hip which makes it difficult for us to go upstairs without taking steps slowly because of reduced muscle power on one side; this also causes back problems due to poor posture that results from trying not to twist while climbing stairs.

Walking can be a very beneficial exercise for people with joint problems. When we change the way we walk, it changes how much weight is placed on each hip and spine segment so that they are now taking double what was before-a lot more responsibility. If this goes wrong then you might experience pain in those same areas as well as functional limitations such as being unable to walk without limping or experiencing great discomfort while doing so.

How physical therapy helps

The physical therapist will help you get back on your feet by evaluating how well everything works together. They'll look at what areas are giving trouble and then develop a treatment plan to fix them.

With our help, you'll be able to take your first steps without the need for a cane or walker. We coordinate an extensive treatment plan that will address all areas of movement and pain relief so it's easy enough even if someone has never had physical therapy before.
