April is Springtime in Toronto. Get Stronger Knees for Outdoor Activities this Summer At Bloor Jane Physiotherapy & Active Rehabilitation
Do you have knee pain? Do you have an unresolved knee problem? Do you need help before starting outdoor activities? Have you been sedentary over the winter and lost some strength?
Have you searched online for answers to your problem but are more confused? Do you have runner’s knees? Have you been told you have a patellofemoral syndrome or chondromalacia? Has someone explained what they are? Have you been diagnosed with a meniscal tear? Have you heard that athletes get arthroscopic surgery for it? Has anyone suggested surgery, and you want to know all your options? Have you searched online but have more questions than answers? Did you have an ultrasound scan or an MRI? Do you understand what they saw? Are you confused? Has anyone suggested knee replacement? Do you need answers to your problem?
At Bloor Jane Physiotherapy, we know the terminology and can explain it to you. If you want answers to any of the above questions, you could benefit from a knee assessment. Our physiotherapists are primary practitioners who understand the anatomy of the knee, the muscles, the ligaments, the meniscus, and cartilage of the joint. The knee is the largest and most complex joint of the body. Many different tissues and structures can cause acute or chronic pain. A recent or an old injury or arthritis can flare up, or just wear and tear of everyday activities can cause pain. Our physiotherapists know how to determine what’s the problem and explain it to you in plain language. Physiotherapists know how to treat you and get you to full recovery.
Treatment can often be a series of specific exercises that you can do on your own, but they should be the right exercises for you. Getting assessed by a physiotherapist at Bloor Jane Physiotherapy and following through with a personal treatment plan is the right answer.
