After a few weeks of physical therapy, this patient's knee was back to 100% and pain-free.
I share this because an X-ray can give some good information but it does not tell everything. If the knee pain was solely due to arthritis, how is it possible their pain was entirely gone after a few weeks of therapy? Perhaps the arthritis was not the root cause of the pain. In this case, the patient also had tight muscles surrounding the knee, weak hamstrings, and poor control of the knee when stepping down off curbs and stairs. Working on those things resolved the pain.
To find out it if physical therapy will help you call/text or email for a free consultation. I would love to hear your story. If I am unable to help you I would love to try to find someone who will help you.
