Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a proven treatment option for knee osteoarthritis.  It will help you move more easily and perform everyday tasks.  Physical therapy can help you gain mobility after surgery or help prevent it.

Physical therapists work in a variety of setting and with a wide range of patients.  They examine and diagnose each patient with the goal of helping them to move, reduce pain, improve function, and prevent further injury.  A therapist’s management plan for knee osteoarthritis will usually involve a series of exercises designed to strengthen the anatomy surrounding your knee.  They will help your muscles get strong and stay loose.
