A Message From Dr. Sarah O'Reilly, DPT, CF-L1, USAT-L1, Owner and Founder of Dimensions Physical Therapy

When faced with constant knee pain, it’s common to assume it’s just a natural consequence of aging, wear, and tear, or a temporary issue that will resolve itself. The discomfort in your knees may be perplexing; unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to improve.

If you are in this situation, rest assured you’re not alone. We frequently encounter individuals who share similar experiences. Knee pain ranks among the most prevalent concerns we address at our physical therapy clinic.

Given the prevalence of knee pain, it’s understandable that everyone we assist seeks answers to these pressing questions:

"Why Is This Happening To Me?" Or "Why Am I Still Experiencing Worsening Knee Pain After Enduring It For Six Months Or More?"

Many believe that when they initially experience knee pain, it will eventually subside and vanish. They envision waking up one morning, and like magic, the knee pain will become a thing of the past. However, after six months pass, they still grapple with the discomfort of knee pain, often finding it even more severe than when it initially appeared.

Does This Situation Resonate With You?

Another scenario frequently observed in our physical therapy clinic involves individuals visiting their doctors, who, with good intentions, advise them to “rest,” “try these painkillers,” and “return in six weeks if there is no improvement.” However, when those six weeks elapse, these individuals revisit the same doctor because their condition has not improved. They are prescribed even stronger medications and, perhaps, a knee support.

Has That Ever Happened To You?

Perhaps you are perplexed because you have received conflicting advice from various individuals. Maybe you believe resting is necessary because you were told that walking exacerbates knee pain, or perhaps you have been advised to perform specific exercises to alleviate the discomfort.

The uncertainty surrounding the appropriate course of action can be highly confusing, and that’s just to prevent the worsening of knee pain!

Unfortunately, this confusion often leads people to procrastinate and delay making a decision about how to address their knee pain. What’s even worse is that many individuals simply accept it as a normal part of life, believing that it must be endured or that there are no other options.

Do You Resonate With These Feelings Too?

If You Are Currently Living With Knee Pain, Here Are Seven Additional Reasons Why It May Be Persisting Longer Than It Should:

  1. You believed it would resolve on its own, but it hasn’t.

  2. You visited a doctor who advised rest and painkillers, but the medications only masked the pain temporarily. Once their effects wore off, the knee pain returned, hindering your daily activities.

  3. A family member or friend convinced you that knee pain is an inevitable part of aging, causing you to accept it without seeking further assistance.

  4. You sought help from other healthcare professionals or physiotherapists in the past, but their advice or treatments did not provide any relief.

  5. You tried using knee supports or braces, but they failed to alleviate the pain.

  6. When you experienced severe pain and swelling in your knees, you opted for rest, hoping it would help. However, the pain persists and bothers you daily.

  7. You attempted a few exercises you found on YouTube, but they were painful to perform and did not relieve pain.

We would love to assist you if any of these situations sound familiar. We invite you to book a call with our physical therapists in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to explore how we can help you.

"What Can I Do To Quickly Alleviate My Knee Pain?"

Well, here are four steps you can take:

  1. Make a decision to seek help: Instead of waiting and hoping for the pain to disappear, it’s important to take action. Many people endure knee pain for months, only to find that it persists or worsens. Don’t delay seeking assistance.

  2. Perform the appropriate exercises: Engaging in the right series of progressive exercises can significantly reduce knee pain. A qualified physiotherapist can provide you with a tailored exercise program that will not only alleviate pain but also restore your freedom of movement and prevent future issues.

  3. Avoid sitting in awkward positions: Sitting for extended periods in positions that strain your knees can exacerbate the problem. Our bodies are not designed for prolonged sitting. Incorporating strengthening exercises to improve your posture, alongside hands-on treatment, can help you regain activity and overall well-being more rapidly.

  4. Receive hands-on physical therapy: Physical therapy has been proven effective in treating knee pain. At Dimensions Physical Therapy, we frequently assist athletes and active individuals with this common issue. If knee pain impacts your work, limits your physical activities, or hinders your quality time with loved ones, physical therapy can help restore your desired lifestyle as quickly as possible.
