AVOID SURGERY AFTER AN INJURY
KNEE INJURIES: According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the knee is the most commonly injured joint. Orthopedic surgeons see more than 5.5 million people annually for knee injuries, which can include runner’s knee (pain or tenderness close to the knee cap at the front side of the knee), tendinitis and iliotibial band syndrome (pain on the outer side of the knee). Severe knee injuries often include bone bruises or damage to the cartilage or ligaments. SHIN SPLINTS: Shin splints occur when there is pain along the large bone in the front of the lower leg, known as the tibia or shin bone. Shin splintsmost commonly occur in runners, especially those who are just starting a running program. This is usually due to poor alignment of the body, or weakness in the leg muscles. The good news is that Agility Physical Therapy & Sports Performance can treat many orthopedic and repetitive motion injuries without the need for invasive surgeries or addictive medications. In fact, most doctors have their patients try physical therapy first, before recommending any other procedures.
The licensed physical therapists at Agility Physical Therapy & Sports Performance can customize a program that recognizes the weaknesses of your particular musculoskeletal system, allowing you to recover quickly and stay active. Even, if you have an old injury, it is important to have it evaluated by our physical therapists to prevent long term damage such as arthritis to your joints. If you have a new or old sport or orthopedic injury like tendinitis, arthritis, a stress fracture or low back pain, our therapists can design a treatment program to promote wellness and minimize the chance of re-injury.
