Let’s talk about how Innovative Physical therapy could very well be like nothing you have ever tried in the past, and why, if you are over 40 it could be your best option to stop knee pain.
Many people try other options prior to coming to see us like: painkillers, massages, Chiropractic, rest/time, other therapists. These do not work as you would hope because:
Pain killers – all they do is mask the pain. They do not address the underlying root cause of the problem and when they wear off you still have a tight muscle or stuck joint.
Massage – many massage therapists are not trained to understand the root cause of your problem so they will never be able to know just what pressure to apply or where to apply it
Rest/time – With more rest and time, muscles generally get tighter and shorter and joints get stiffer. Leave your car in the garage for a few weeks and it is unlikely to drive well if it starts at all. Joints and muscles are designed to move and you get stronger the more you move. It is very important to get the joint moving and muscles released so you can freely begin to move absent of pain.
Chiropractic – They are very good at getting the joints to move but do not address the muscles causing the improper movement patterns causing pain.
Other Physical Therapists – Many times other therapists do not use their hands to work on your muscles and joints physically and just teach you how to exercise. Exercise is only half of the treatment in our world.
The main reason why what we will do for you will be nothing like anything you have tried thus far… Exercises will be progressed safely and when you are ready to do them. The exercises will be specific to you and your needs to get you back to what you want to do. But the exercises are only half of the treatment. We will use various manual techniques with our expert hands that have been trained to know precisely where, when and how much pressure to apply to the problem area.
As for rest? Our goal is to get you active and back to living your life to the fullest!
