“Say Goodbye to Knee Pain and Stiffness - Without Taking Painkillers, Without Dangerous Surgery and Without Having to Wait to See your Doctor!”
Knee pain is a common complaint, but the knee is a complicated piece of equipment – and the list of causes of knee pain is vast. Your knee pain may be from an obvious accident. Or a silent injury that has damaged the spongy cartilage that cushions and protects the joint or torn the stretchy ligaments that stop your knee from dislocating and twisting right off. But equally, it could be something different altogether like an infection, a degenerative joint disease like arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis or one of many other knee-related conditions. That’s why it’s super-important to have knee pain evaluated and the root cause identified by a physiotherapist.
The knee is a major joint in the body – and it’s under a lot of strain as it supports you through life: twisting, bending, stretching, and extending hundreds and thousands of times a day. But when things go wrong… there isn’t much you can do when your knee is out of action. Walking, standing, running, and playing sports can all cause intense pain. If your pain is mild, you can battle through the pain. Still, we wouldn't advise it because the knee is susceptible to irreversible damage, which may require surgery or total knee replacement further down the line.
It's not a natural part of getting older, either. Sure, our joints are prone to wear and tear as we age (if we don’t look after them – with physiotherapy, therapeutic exercise and staying active). But pain ISN’T normal.
You don’t have to limp through life.
But if you have been putting it off and ignoring the pain. Don’t worry. You’re not alone. We hear this from patients all the time.
And the most popular question all these patients ask is
“Why is This Happening to Me?”...
“Why Am I Still Suffering With Knee Pain After Putting Up With It For 6 Months (Maybe More)?”
Sadly, many patients believe that their knee pain is just going to get better on its own. That they "must have pulled something," and it'll be grand and good as new in a few days. But, unfortunately, things are likely to get worse, not better. Especially if you've been in pain for more than a week already, and you could be causing permanent damage.
Is This You?
Some patients try to reassure themselves by seeing their doctor. But in most cases, all they get is painkillers and instructions to rest and “take it easy” – and the fallback clause “come back and see me in 6 weeks if it doesn’t get better”.
But six weeks is a long time to rest. Wouldn't you rather spend that time healing, recovering, and building strength in your knee joint and the surrounding muscles? Especially as most people end up back in the doctor's waiting room after the six weeks is up, still in pain and with no real clue about what's going on inside their knee to cause the pain. So they get painkillers, further instructions to rest – maybe even a painful steroid injection into the knee and they're sent on their way again. Back and forwards over many months – and still no further forward.
It's crazy. It also explains why so many people aged 45+ have chronic KNEE PAIN and end up needing knee surgery. When it comes to knees, we believe in a proactive, not a reactive, approach.
Has This Happened to You?
So, what are some other reasons why your knee pain is lasting longer than it should do? Well, it could be information overload – due to different theories on the source of your pain. Many people (qualified and unqualified) – especially on the internet, are more than happy to give out advice on knee pain – but most of it isn't credible. And sometimes, it can be dangerous.
If you haven't injured your knee, you probably think the cause of your KNEE PAIN is something you did but don't remember, like overextending it on the tennis court or banging it somehow. But the most likely cause and the cause we often see in the Bellefleur clinics is weakness in the muscles surrounding the knees. Pushing yourself in the gym, the golf course or doing too much in the garden has just sped up the inevitable process.
If you're not an expert in KNEE PAIN, it can be confusing to determine what is wrong with your KNEE(S). That's why many people accept it as part of life and growing older, but it doesn't have to be like that.
