Dealing With Aches And Pains


In today’s blog post, we are going to take a look at two forms of aches and pains in further detail for better pain management.

Knee pain
More often than not, knee pain occurs because of overuse or it stems from a specific incident, such as a sports injury. The symptoms can vary too, from pain and swelling to stiffness and tenderness, with some people also suffering from an uncomfortable locking sensation, a click or grinding sensation, as well as weakness of the muscles. No matter what type of knee pain you are encountering, you need to find a specialist with a great record for alleviating pain and ensuring a return to normal functionality.

There are a wide range of knee problems, including:
  • Cruciate Ligament Injury
  • Medial/Lateral Ligament Injury
  • Iliotibial Band (ITB) Irritation
  • Meniscus Injury
  • Anterior Knee Pain
  • Sport Injury
  • Tendonitis
  • Post-Operative Rehab
  • Post-Fracture Rehab
  • Arthritis
  • Patellofemoral Joint Pain
  • Patella Pain 

Physiotherapy is undoubtedly the best route to go down when you are suffering from any type of knee pain or injury, as this is a safe, drug-free solution, which is extremely effective with this part of the body in particular. Plus, the therapist will be able to determine if the pain is because of something else, for example, joint pain can sometimes mean crohns disease. The treatment program put together will include a mixture of hands-on techniques and a variation of exercises, which may include postural, balance, strengthening and stretching exercises. You may also require strapping, soft tissue work and other forms of physiotherapy treatment; it all depends on your diagnosis.

Arm pain
Arm pain and injury is common and can occur in many different ways, from everyday use to work injuries to sports injuries. No matter what type of arm problem you are experiencing, you can be sure of a fast recovery when you act quickly.

Here are some examples of arm pain:
  • Muscular Strain
  • Ligament Injury
  • Biceps/Triceps Pain
  • Post-Fracture Rehab
  • Sports Injury

The most important step of the treatment is the diagnosis, which is why a health specialist will carry out a thorough assessment to get to the root of the issue. Arm pain can come from a number of different sources, such as injury to joints, tendons and local muscles while it is also frequently a source of referred pain, such as neck-arm pain. It is important to book an appointment with a therapist as quickly as possible to ensure there is no risk of the problem getting worse and being a further detriment to your normal functionality.

Once the therapist has accurately diagnosed the problem, they will then put together a bespoke treatment plan that is based entirely on your condition and your needs. This treatment is designed to reduce pain and increase functionality in the most efficient manner so that you can get back to your best. Physiotherapy is the safest solution for anyone experiencing arm pain, as it deals with the actual cause of the problem, and it is a drug-free solution.
