Physical Therapy Q&A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy uses a range of manual manipulation techniques, individual exercises, and other strategies to restore function in your knee after an injury or surgery. 

The physical therapy services at Reflex Knee Specialists focus on getting you back to your usual activities with less pain and more confidence. The team also offers therapeutic resources to lower your risk for future knee injuries and pain.

As part of your treatment plan for knee pain and dysfunction, your provider may recommend that you participate in physical therapy sessions for a period of time to aid in your recovery.

Why should I consider physical therapy?

Physical therapy helps you safely return to work and other activities when healing from a knee injury or surgery. This type of therapy can also restore function in knee joints damaged by osteoarthritis or other chronic diseases.

Because your body’s normal response to pain is avoidance and compensation, your knee may never have a chance to heal fully. Improper healing of your knee joint can increase your risk for recurrent pain, weakness, and injuries.

The physical therapists at Reflex Knee Specialists provide educational resources to support your recovery path. They help you set and achieve goals to restore optimal function and improve strength in your knee joints.

How long do I need to participate in physical therapy?

There’s no clear-cut answer on how long you need physical therapy to enhance your recovery. Therapy plans vary from person to person, and many factors play a role in your recovery.

Your Reflex Knee Specialists provider discusses what you can expect from physical therapy during your initial evaluation. They customize a therapy plan based on your needs, the severity of your pain, and the nature of your condition.

In addition to on-site physical therapy sessions, the practice provides exercises you can do at home to keep your knee joint strong and healthy. You can continue these exercises long after your therapy sessions have ended to preserve your joint function and lower your risk for pain.
