Recovering from a Knee Injury

If you have had a significant knee injury, you may need pain relief, physical therapy, massage and other therapies such as aquatherapy to regain muscle balance.

We strongly caution against the use of opioids, except immediately after surgery, and in order to withstand the rigors of physical therapy in the first few days after therapy begins.

Please work with your physician, physical therapist, and massage therapist, to reduce the need for opioids within a short period of time after surgery. Addiction to these drugs can be devastating.

Neuromuscular massage can help you regain your range of motion and eliminate pain.

Knee Injury

Most knee injuries are caused from sudden stops or starts. Sudden pain in the knee should be evaluated for sprains or tears.

Once a diagnosis is made that does not involve surgery, massage can greatly relieve the pain of the injury.

Neuromuscular massage can help you maintain your range of motion and eliminate pain.

Referred Knee Pain

Osteoarthritis in the hips, even the ankles, can present as knee pain.

It’s more common than you think. Massage can help to identify where the problem is.

Knee Pain

Without an obvious injury, knee pain is a sign that you’re experiencing some wear and tear on the cartilage that protects the femur (thigh bone), patella (knee cap), and tibia (lower leg bone).

Stop listening to the old adage, “no pain, no gain.” If there’s pain, stop the activity that is causing it, until the pain is relieved.

Neuromuscular massage can help you maintain your range of motion and eliminate pain.

Spring Snow can Present a Challenge to Skiers and Snowboarders

When the champagne powder turns to springtime slush, skiers and snowboarders risk injury to knees and ankles because your technique may need to change to fit the snow conditions. It is more difficult to carve turns or make quick movements when the snow is wet and heavy.
 
After a day of skiing or snowboarding in spring conditions, a good neuromuscular massage will help relieve any stiffness or soreness after that workout.
