If any of the above sounded familiar, continue reading to find out the solutions to your knee pain, and what 3 mistakes to avoid when getting it treated. 

What’s Wrong With My Knee?

To help you understand what might be wrong with your knee, we’ll take our client Adam for example. Adam works as an engineer, and he loves hiking on his off days. His knee pain was a big problem for him. He was worried that every time he got up from his chair at work someone would see him limping, and he couldn’t hike with his wife on the weekends. He was frustrated because he had been battling knee pain for a few years. He would go to the doctor for it, they would give him some pills, and it would get better, but then a few months later it always seemed to come back. He would return to the doctor and they would give him some exercises. These only worked for a little while too. He felt like he was just spinning his wheels because nothing seemed to work long term. Eventually his knee started to bother him when he was sleeping, so he never felt fully rested. This left him tired, unable to exercise or hike, and unable to perform his best at work and he didn’t know what to do next.

Has any of this happened to you?

At one point Adam had surgery on his knee, but even that didn’t take it away. By the time he came to us, he had tried everything from YouTube exercises to surgery, and even a few other physical therapists. 

When we first met Adam we found out what others had missed so many times before. 


Mistake #1: Focusing only on one body part.
 

Believe it or not, Adams’ knee pain kept coming back because of his hips not moving how they were supposed to. This was forcing his knee to work double time. When you focus on just what’s happening at the knee, you’re focusing on the symptom, not the cause. It’s often a combination of what’s happening at the knee, hip, pelvis, ankle, and foot. 

We developed a plan to help Adam’s knee to heal by first identifying everything that was CAUSING the pain to keep coming back. This helps us to avoid mistake #2: cookie cutter treatments.

Mistake #2: Cookie Cutter Treatments

The hips and ankle heavily influence the movement at the knee. The knee is often just a victim of poor movements at one of these joints, or sometimes both. Everyone’s case is different. Some people have hip pain, along with their knee pain, others have ankle stiffness. Some people have meniscus irritation, others have joint pain. Every case is completely different, and it should be explained to you exactly how each exercise or treatment is going to get you better. Doctors that just give out the same exercises to every knee pain patient should be avoided, when making decisions about how to fix your knee. 

Mistake #3: Not Having A Good Outcome In Mind

Where Adam had struggled in the past, was the plan was always about the knee pain. When the pain was gone, treatment would stop. Then he would get back to hiking and going to work and it would slowly creep back in. 

His real outcome was being able to hike with his wife and kids, and walk without being limited by knee pain. He wanted to be able to get a full night’s sleep, and take care of himself, and his family. He wanted to be done with short term results, and taking pills for the pain. We designed a plan that helped him achieve all of the above.

What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Knee Pain Completely?

1. The sooner you take action, the sooner it will get fixed. If you choose to wait, your body adapts to moving around the pain, and you develop more bad habits that take longer to fix.

2. You need the right exercises at the right stage of your recovery. If you’ve ever heard of a “PT mill” it’s where everyone with knee pain gets the same 10-20 exercises without any explanation given. Evaluation by a specialist can ensure that you get the right exercises at each stage of recovery, to guide you to complete recovery without it coming back.

3. Avoid crossing your knees. It can cause inflammation that slowly builds up until pain starts.

4. Work with a specialist physical therapist. At The Doctors of Physical Therapy we do not use any aides or technicians so your time is spent 1-on-1 with an expert the entire session.
