Top Questions About Your Knee Pain:...

In a previous blog post I have pointed out that knee pain affects over 25% of adults, and many of these people wind up having surgery to try and fix the problem. We have also discussed options to avoid surgery if possible HERE.  Today I want to cover some of the most frequently asked questions I get regarding knee pain. I am pulling back the curtain and opening the vault (Seinfeld reference), I hope this helps.  Q: How long is it going to take?  A: Ultimately it depends on you and your goal or goals.  AT MOSS Rehabilitation Center we...

Let’s talk about your knee pain for a bit: this is one of the most common problems that we see in our office In fact, in our most recent blog  (What You Need To Know Before You Get That New Knee) we pointed out how frequent knee pain affects over 25% of adults, and many of these people wind up having surgery to try and fix the problem. I can personally attest to the headaches that come from having knees that hurt; years of sports gave me some injuries that have even affected me for years afterward.  The knee joint...

Painting A Picture of Health

I want to introduce you to Jody.  Jody is a local artist who is not a stranger to MOSS Rehabilitation Center. This is now her second time coming to us for her knee.  Earlier in the year we got her rolling along following an incident with a suitcase and escalator while she was traveling.  Most recently she tweaked her knee helping her aging parents. This increased the pain and stiffness in her knee.  With her goal of avoiding surgery and preferring the natural, drug free healing method at MOSS she came back in for a tune-up. “A healthy man has...

What You Need To Know Before...

One of the most common orthopedic surgeries these days is a Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), otherwise known as a “knee replacement.” With the prevalence of knee pain (25% of adults) in our country, along with the associated arthritis stemming from injuries or wear and tear as we age, it seems that this is a trend that will continue for the time being.  Over 600,000 total knee replacement surgeries are performed annually in the United States.  In fact, if you’re reading this, chances are you’re either considering a knee replacement or you have had one already.  Maybe you don’t know yet...

Your Most Pressing Questions About Knee...

If you or someone you know has knee pain then this article is for you.  Obviously as a Physical Therapist my first line of defense to help you recover from an injury is a natural method. I believe the body is an amazing machine capable of healing, given the right environment.  As a cyclist I have suffered with knee pain occasionally and have always been able to bounce back using natural methods. This is actually how I discovered how effective dry needling is for muscle and joint pain.  I was out with some friends doing a warm up ride for...

Those Hips Don’t Lie

If you or someone you know has knee pain then this article is for you.  As an avid cyclist and one who competes my main focus is to build a better aerobic engine.  I spend hours on the bike training and getting ready for races. I love it when everything goes according to plan, but when does that actually happen? A few years ago I started to notice some left knee pain. No big deal, I was putting in some serious miles and figured it was a little bit of tendonitis.  I changed my training load, worked on the tendon...

A Healthy Knee Is A Happy...

If you or someone you know has knee pain then this post is for you.  Many Americans deal with debilitating knee pain on a daily basis. In fact 750,000 thousand knee surgeries are performed in the US annually and an additional 600,000 total knee replacement surgeries.  One study found that up to 20% of patients receiving a knee replacement continue to have persistent pain.  An issue with your knee can be frustrating due to the pain but also the limitations it places on you.  It can reduce your quality of life, activity level and mobility causing you to lose your...

Knee Surgery Recovery & Prevention: How...

Knee surgery is one of the most common bone-related surgical procedures in the United States. As a result, MOSS has seen hundreds of patients looking to prevent the need for surgery, prepare themselves for surgery, or recover from surgery. Many of these patients come to me confused as to why they are still dealing with knee pain they hoped would be relieved by surgery. Or, patients don’t understand why they should see me here at MOSS before and after they get surgery. Our specialists feel so much empathy for these patients. It’s easy to empathize: these people are in pain...

Knee Pain Treatment & Relief: Know...

Knee pain is something that many of us experience (over a quarter of us, to be exact)...  but for some reason, many people don’t know that there are knee pain treatment methods besides surgery and intense pain killers. Surgery and pain medications have their place in knee pain relief, sure. But there are many other methods that you can use to strengthen your muscles, increase your mobility, reduce pain, and correct any compensatory movements you’ve made to continue your daily activities. In my years of physical therapy work, I’ve seen people develop limps, change their walking gait, and even stop...

What Brings You to MOSS? The...

Frequent knee pain affects over 25 percent of the adult population with studies showing a significant increase in knee-related pain & surgeries in recent history.  Knee pain can result in a laundry list of problems in daily life. Because our knees are imperative to our movement and mobility, knee problems can make it difficult to sleep, drive, work, walk, or even get out of bed in the morning (physically and emotionally!).  Can you relate to some of these problems? Have you found that your work and/or personal life has been affected by your knee pain? Are you or a loved...
