Physiotherapy Knee Injury Treatment and Rehab

A common issue that the physiotherapists at MacLean Sports Physiotherapy hear from clients is knee pain. A knee injury at any point in time can be caused by repetitive strains of the knee or an imbalance of the muscles. It is recommended that you see a physiotherapist to get your knee pain assessed and get the right course of action in the treatment process. Receiving knee injury treatments as early as possible will provide a quicker recovery and prevent further developments of the knee pain.

How Can Physiotherapy Help you Recover from Knee Pain?

Our physiotherapy team in Burlington can find the right knee injury rehab process that will help you get back to what is important to you as soon as possible. Knee injury treatments begin with assessments of the pain and provide a pain control strategy that will work for each unique assessment. There are many procedures that the therapist can suggest that will help with knee pain including laser therapy, ultrasound therapy, and acupuncture. Once the therapist finds a method to control the pain, they begin improving the mobility of the hip, knee and ankle joints through manipulation exercises. These exercises can also help build strength and maintain the knee to prevent injuries.

How Long Does it Take to Recover from Knee Pain?

The knee injury treatment process can take a few weeks or a few months, depending on the duration and severity of the knee injury. If there is a large tear in the meniscus or ACL rupture, a surgery may be required. If the surgery is needed, you should get pre-surgical rehabilitation and post surgical rehabilitation to make sure that the knee surgery proves a success. Be patient and consistent with the knee injury treatment program that is recommended by your physiotherapist.
