Knee Pain/Hip Pain

At Rue and Primavera we treat all kinds of knee pain

Knee pain can be debilitating and it may be not only stopping you from walking but stopping you from getting comfortable in your favorite chair.  Is your knee giving out? Is it locking? No matter the cause of your knee pain the best chance that you have at getting better will be to check in with your physical therapist.

We treat:

  • post-surgical care (total knee replacement, ACL repair, meniscus, repair, MPFL repair, and more)
  • non-surgical knee pain including OA (osteoarthritis)
  • PFPS (patellar femoral pain syndrome)
  • non-operative traumatic (ligament sprains, meniscus tears)
  • Patellar tendonitis, and more!

Physical therapists are the knee experts.

       Common causes of knee pain:

  • Arthritis / worn out cartilage/ meniscus tears
  • Patella malalignment
  • Ligament sprains or tears:  ACL, MCL, PCL
  • Tendinitis
  • Fractures of the femur, tibia or patella

 

A word on Total knee replacements.  Therapy may be indicated before a knee replacement, but after surgery it is essential. You have a limited time to gain back the amount of motion that you need to feel normal and do the things that you want to do. Yes we can be your therapist and your cheerleader.

Hip Pain

If the hip is in pain more than likely your back hurts as well.  Problems with the hip can reverberate all the way to the foot and vice versa. Problems with the hip can also refer pain to the pelvis or groin.  Hip pain and weakness can cause us to walk with a wobble to one side.

The hips are the main driver of most movements when we are standing and when they are strong and have full mobility, they make our lives fantastic.

Some common causes of hip pain include: arthritis, bursitis, hip impingement or FAI (femoral-acetabular impingement)

As a therapist I cannot really take off my observation skills when I’m out in public. I am always watching how people walk.  It is a game for me to figure out what is causing that person to walk like that? Hip pain is fairly easy to identify and the way you are walking may reveal what the problem is.

In any case physical therapists are the experts for this joint. Don’t live with it. Stop ignoring it.
