Organizations such as the Arthritis Foundation support exercise programs as the best non-pharmacological way to improve knee pain for people with arthritis. This approach is further enhanced by manual therapies performed by highly trained physical therapists, and can greatly reduce pain and disability.
Why Motion Stability?
At Motion Stability, we not only focus on treating your knee pain, improve its mobility and get you moving again, but we take a more comprehensive approach to treating your knee. Many times your knee pain is directly related to your knee itself, but typically related to mobility or strength issues above the knee at your hip and pelvis as well as below your knee at your ankle and foot. Many times, patients who have been to other physical therapists are surprised when we ask the patient to walk barefoot and observe how the foot and ankle work, they are equally surprised when we examine your hip and pelvis to determine how those areas of your body are the direct reason why your knee hurts.
Our treatment interventions, therefore, are not solely based on treating your knee only, but help improve the deficits in the entire leg that make the knee pain occur. We find that our patients’ results are much more thorough and allow the patient to achieve much more than they expected.
