Therapy for knee injuries

Knee injuries

Knee injuries and keen pain are very common with athletes, recreational activities, and even just normal daily tasks. Injuries and pain can range from minor sprains or strains to severe injuries or even just over time. Pain can be noted from ligament sprains or tears, muscle imbalances, traumatic activities, or just plain getting older.

Physical therapy can be helpful by identifying the problem and looking for other related causes. This allows the therapist to treat the causes while decreasing pain, and restoring your function. Gait analysis can be performed to ensure that the cause is not coming from other joints such as the ankle or hip. Post operative care for total knee replacements, meiniscal repairs, ACL or MCL ligament repairs are also treated more effectively when proper differentiation is performed.

Many times conservative care through physical therapy can prevent surgery especially for ligament tears. At Fort Lee Physical Therapy the latest and best evidence-based techniques and treatments are utilized to restore flexibility, joint mobility, strength, and balance-- getting you effectively and efficiently back to function.

If you are looking to return to recreational sport/activity or just to be able to walk/run without pain, Fort Lee Physical Therapy has the tools available to help you achieve your goals.
