Our knees support our weight throughout the day and gather a lot of wear and tear throughout our lives. This can lead to problems that range from chronic pain to total knee replacements. Knees are an easily injured body part when exercising or playing a sport as well.
Timberlane Physical Therapy Method:
We are skilled in evaluation and research, which allows us to treat the whole picture, not just the specific pain. Knee pain is often affected by other areas of the lower body, like the hips and feet.
You will work with a therapist one-on-one during your session and learn exercises and skills to manage your pain. This allows you to maintain your healing process between visits and to continue management after your time at Timberlane PT.

Treating knee pain and retaining full mobility in that joint is important in leading a mobile life. We put a lot of stress on that area of the body and maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle can combat problems that can arise later in life. Our team creates a treatment plan based on a thorough evaluation of the patient. Some of our common plans include:
- Gait training
- Compression / Swelling management
Tip for Recovery:
Stay active, learn how to move the proper way, and don’t overstrain your body.
