If you’re living with bad knees, they’re painful or they ache – it’s very easy to think it’s “just something that comes with age”, it’s a bit of “wear and tear”, or that it’s nothing and it will go away on its own.
You can’t quite put your finger on why you’re feeling so much pain in your knees – but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better!
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, Knee Pain is one of the most common problems that we see in our Physical Therapy clinic in Cranston.
And when it comes to living with knee pain, everyone we see wants to know:
Most people think that when they get Knee Pain, it will eventually just “ease up” and go away on its own.
That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, Knee Pain will be a thing of the past… But then 6 months later you’re still living with nagging pain… often even worse than it was when it came on.
Another scenario we see all the time in our physical therapy clinic is when people go to the doctors, and the doctor tells them to rest, ”try these painkillers”, and told they need to “get an MRI.”
But this is rarely ever the best advice and often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the doctor again because it hasn’t gotten any better, and told they have some scary findings (which may in return actually be NORMAL findings). Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, told to wear a knee brace, and advised MORE rest or an injection as their only options. This is madness and explains why so many people are continuing to suffer from chronic knee pain that won’t go away.
Maybe you’re confused because you’ve been told different things by different people. Maybe you think you have to rest because you’ve been told walking makes knee pain worse, or that you should be doing “this exercise” to make it better.
It’s very confusing to know exactly what to do – and that’s just to avoid making knee pain worse!
And because of this confusion – this often leads people to procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help fix their Knee Pain. Worse, many people just end up accepting it as “part of life” – as if it’s normal, as if it has to be that way.
