Nagging Knee Pain in South Orlando

Knee pain in South Orlando FL is a very common condition that usually happens because of constant wear and tear of the joint. Along with pain, some people experience stiffness, swelling, numbness, redness, or trouble walking. The knee is large joint and debilitating pain can keep you from doing the activities that you enjoy. It’s important to find out what type of knee injury you have, and what could be causing the damage. A proper diagnosis will help dictate the specialized and appropriate treatment for each type of cause. I treat knee pain weekly in the office and am getting great results by utilizing several techniques such as laser therapy, Graston, taping, and adjustments.

Here are 4 things you can do at home to help with knee problems in South Orlando FL:

  1. Exercise - The last thing you feel like doing is exercising if your knee hurts. Exercise, though, is vital for people who suffer from stiffness, pain, or arthritis. Exercising can also help with weight loss which will help take pressure off the joint. It also will strengthen muscles around the knee and help lubricate the joint. Start by going for a brisk walk and work your way up into a solid daily routine.
  2. Supplements - Joint support formulas such as glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM along with a high quality fish oil supplement can really help with all kinds of knee problems. These joint formulas provide the all the joints in your body with the raw materials needed to stay healthy and strong. A fish oil supplement can help with inflammation in the knee plus it has benefits that can help the rest of the body as well, it’s almost like a 2 for 1!
  3. Footwear - Wearing the appropriate shoes is extremely important. Make sure your shoes fit and are in good condition. Shoes should also match the activity that you’re doing; running, walking, training, ect.
  4. Tape it up - Try kinesiotape (KT tape, Rocktape, Theraband, ect.) I use Rocktape on many of my patients. These taping techniques help reduce pain without limiting your movement, and motion is a key component for having healthy joints.
