Knee Pain

“How to Get Rid of Constant, Bothersome Knee Pain Without Injections, Painkillers, or Having to Wear a Brace or Support...”

Don’t give up the way of life you want because of problems that can be fixed. So, we made this, especially for you.

Dr. Jacob Dye, DPT, CSCS, DN, Owner of Origin Rehabilitation and Performance

If you’re living with painful or aching knees, it’s tempting to assume that it’s “just something that comes with age,” “wear and tear,” or nothing that will go away on its own.

You cannot pinpoint exactly why you are experiencing knee discomfort, but it does not appear to be improving.

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – we hear similar complaints frequently. Knee pain is, in fact, one of THE most prevalent complaints we face at our physical therapy practice.

And when it comes to living with knee pain, everyone we encounter wants to know the following:

“Why Am I Experiencing This? Or, “Why Am I Still Suffering From Knee Pain That Is Getting Worse After Tolerating It for Six or More Months?”

Most people believe that knee pain will ultimately “ease off” and disappear on its own. That one morning they will be up and knee discomfort will be gone, as if by “magic.” Then, six months later, you are still experiencing knee pain, which is frequently worse than when it first began.

Does That Describe You?

Another scenario we see frequently in our physical therapy clinic is when people go to their doctors and the well-meaning doctor tells them to “rest”, “try these painkillers”, and “come back in 6 weeks if it’s not better”. But then, 6 weeks later, they return to the same Doctor because it hasn’t improved, only to be given ANOTHER prescription for even stronger pills and possibly a knee brace.

Have You Ever Experienced Something Similar?

Perhaps you’re perplexed because you’ve been told conflicting information by various people. Maybe you believe you need to rest because you’ve been told that walking aggravates knee pain or that you should do ‘this exercise’ and ‘that exercise’ to make it better.

It’s difficult to know what to do – and that’s just to avoid aggravating knee pain!

Because of this confusion, people frequently procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help alleviate their knee pain. Worse, many people simply accept it as “part of life,” as if it were normal or “had” to be that way.

Is This Your Experience as Well?

If You Have Knee Pain, Here Are 7 More Reasons Why It May Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

1 You expected it to go away on its own, but it didn’t.

2 You went to the doctor, who told you to rest and take pain relievers, but the pills did nothing but mask the pain, and as soon as they wore off, knee pain stopped you in your tracks again.

3 You just accepted it because a family member or friend told you that everyone gets knee pain as they get older.

4 You had previously sought assistance from other Healthcare Professionals or a Physio, but nothing they said or did seem to help.

5 You’ve tried things like knee braces, but they’ve done nothing to alleviate your pain.

6 You thought resting would be a good idea because you were experiencing severe pain and swelling in your knees, but it still irritates you on a daily basis.

7 You tried a few ‘Youtube’ exercises, but they were painful to do and did nothing to alleviate your pain.

If any of these things have happened to you, we’d love to help you by inviting you to schedule a call with one of our Physical Therapists in Chandler, Arizona to find out what we can do for you.

The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things is actually a GOOD THING because knowing what doesn’t work brings you closer to discovering what does!

“How Can I Get Rid of Knee Pain Quickly?”

Phase 1: Tell Us Your Story

So, here are four things you can do:

1. First and foremost, you must decide to obtain help – Many people rest for weeks, believing that the pain will “go away with time,” but six months later, they’re still suffering and nothing has changed… Or the pain and swelling become more severe

2. Next, perform the RIGHT exercises – One of the best ways to alleviate knee pain is to perform the right series of progressed exercises – the right exercises given to you by a Physiotherapist will help reduce pain, allow you to move freely again quickly, and prevent the problems from reoccurring in the near future.

3. Avoid sitting in uncomfortable situations – When you sit and bend your knees, you place your knees in strange, unnatural positions – positions that knees are not designed to be in for extended periods of time. To make you active and healthy as early as possible, it would be of great assistance if you were provided with proper strengthening exercises for improved posture, in addition to manual therapy.

4. Realistic, “hands-on” Physical Therapy – Physical therapy has been shown to aid individuals with knee discomfort. As a matter of fact, at Origin Rehabilitation and Performance, this is one of the most common issues we find among our athletes and active individuals. If knee discomfort is interfering with your employment, preventing you from staying active, threatening your independence, or preventing you from spending quality time with family and friends, Physical Therapy can help you return to the life you deserve as soon as possible.

If You’re Currently Living With Knee Pain, Here’s 7 More Reasons Why It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

1. You thought it would go away on it’s own – but it didn’t

2. You went to the Doctor who told you to rest and take painkillers – but the pills did nothing to help, all they did was ‘mask’ the pain – and as soon as they wore off knee pain stopped you in your tracks again

3. A family member, or friend, told you that everybody gets knee pain as they get older, so you just accepted it

4. You sought help from other Healthcare Professionals or a Physio in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help

5. You’ve tried using things like knee supports but they’ve done nothing to help make the pain any better

6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest because you experienced severe pain and swelling in your knees, but it still irritates you daily

4+ 5-Star Reviews!

“I had been dealing with shoulder pain when benching for years until I started working with Jake. My left shoulder would always lag when doing pressing motions in the gym. Working with Jake at Origin completely solved this problem. Jake at Origin was very thorough in his assessment of my shoulder, and by the end of the session I had a way better understanding of why my left shoulder was weaker than my right, and why everything I had been doing the past was not working. He explained to me the process working towards improving my movement and programmed complete therapy program that I could add into my gym routine (this made it so convenient). I have now added 30 lbs. to my bench, and I no longer deal with shoulder pain after pressing days. I would recommend Origin to anyone who wants to get back to performing at a high level or being active again.”

“Choosing Origin Rehabilitation and Performance was the best decision I made after tearing my ACL. I have had previous surgeries due to injuries playing college football and the difference in the way Jake treats compared to the other physical therapist I had was so much better. Jake was with every time for an hour and his ACL return to sport program not only rehabbed my knee but also included sports training which helped me feel like an athlete again right away. By the time I got back to paying football I felt I was a better overall player due to the overall training and rehab I received from Jake. Jake was also thorough in his assessment and guidelines I needed to meet before playing again which gave me the confidence I needed to trust my knee again when playing. Origin treats you like an athlete which was the most important thing for me when choosing a therapist. If you are currently doing rehab at a general rehab clinic I would definitely recommend switching and seeing Jake. His program made me realize how many things I was not doing that I should have been.”
