Knee Pain from Non-Use

The more sedentary you are, the more likely you will be to develop pain in your joints when you do need to move.

When your knees are used regularly, they can get stiff and become less flexible.

Even a 10 minute walk every day can help with knee stiffness.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Stretching Mistakes

We should be stretching to stay limber and flexible, but if we stretch in a way that overstresses muscles or tendons, we can cause strains or even sprains while stretching.
Not all injuries come as a result of a single, bad stretch, either. Repetitive stretching that’s improperly done can cause injury over time.
Ideally, we should not wait until an injury occurs to begin stretching to relieve the pain or regain mobility. We should stretch every day.
As we age, we begin to lose flexibility and range of motion, especially in the shoulders and low back, which can then lead to other mobility issues.
Fortunately, age-related loss of flexibility can be reversed with a daily stretching program.
