How do you stop the knee pain that's hassled you for too long?
Knee pain is a very common problem amongst people of all ages. It can be divided into 3 main categories:
1. Acute injury: broken bone, torn ligament e.g. ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), or meniscus tear
2. Medical conditions: arthritis, infection
3. Chronic use / overuse conditions: osteoarthritis, patellar syndromes, tendinitis, and bursitis
Some of the very clear symptoms of having some knee injury include difficulty to walk, unstable knees, limping, swelling, feeling like your knee is ‘giving away’, locking of the knee, or inability to extend the knee. However, it is important to know that surgery should not be the first option to getting rid of your knee pain. There are plenty of noninvasive treatments such as physiotherapy that you can do before resorting to the most extreme decision of surgery.
Here at Form Physio and Rehab, our highly qualified physiotherapists will work closely with you to understand your knee pain. Whether it is an torn ACL, meniscus tear, arthritis, or tendinitis, we will do our assessment and if we are confident that we can help you, we will. Once we understand the complexity of the pain, we will work extra hard to get rid of your pain so you can live a pain free life.
"I’ve suffered from knee problems due to my reconstructive surgery of a torn ACL and meniscus two summers back. After getting my legs thoroughly checked by the FORM physiotherapist, I decided to undergo personal physical therapy and training sessions. By signing up for personal sessions with Maz as my trainer, I had the opportunity to cater my workouts specifically to me in hopes of regaining equal balance as well as leg and core strength. Maz slowly increased both the intensity and creativity of exercises in each personal session, resulting in immediate improvements in my self-efficacy, posture, and ability to perform simple exercises. Regular physio check ups at FORM throughout my training would reaffirm these results too. Eventually, I returned to the football field and experienced a newfound sharpness, quality of performance, and confidence in my play. In the end, I feel extremely privileged to not only have but also take the opportunity to make major strides in my rehabilitation and overall health goals, especially for someone like me who “lives to eat”. More than anything else, I can take a plethora of lessons from my memorable experiences at FORM in appropriately designing my exercises and shaping my diet now that I have returned abroad. I feel more motivated to continue on the same path that FORM has paved for me, and fully advocate for absolutely anybody who is looking to get stronger, fitter, and healthier. I appreciate all the help from the FORM team, and want to extend an extra special thanks to my new friend Maz for showing an undeniable passion and motivation to serve the needs of his community. A welcoming addition to a busy residential area in Bangkok, I am looking forward to returning to your clinic as soon as I return home!"
