Knee Pain

Summary

A Knee injuries are a common occurrence amongst athletes. The knee, begin a hinge joint, has less mobility than many other joints. It is designed to move forward and backward with a limited amount of side–to–side or twisting motion. Due to the already limited mobility, the configuration of the ligaments that hold it steady, and the amount of body weight that legs are required to support, Knee sprains are among the most complicated and difficult injuries to rehabilitate. They can be caused by collisions during any type of contact sport, or by sudden and quick changes in direction. Chronic knee pain can be caused by things like wearing away of cartilage, or improper movement of the kneecap on the underlying bones.

 

Cause

The cause of knee pain can have many different pathologies.  Most commonly knees are injured during activity; athletic sports, or daily movements, combined with the effects of time and gravity can damage the ligaments, wear down cartilage and meniscus, or cause mechanical problems such as arthritis

 

Effects

Signs and Symptoms of knee pain are: Swelling and stiffness, Redness and warmth to the touch, Weakness or instability, Popping or crunching noises, inability to fully straighten the knee. It can affect your daily life making hard to walk, move up and down such as getting up from chairs and stairs. It makes it miserable to walk and typical thing for people to do is not move there knee making it even harder to recover from. 

 

Treatment

At Structura body therapies our practitioners are  specially equipped to use modalities and tools to aid the body in flushing  swelling out of the knee joint. We then work to release tension and problematic trigger points that can add to the pain you may be feeling within your knee joint.  Our therapy then consists of restoring balance to the fascia and musculature of the leg and its relationship with body mechanics; Focusing on restoration of proper mobility relationships between the knee, hip and ankle. Finally, we can include a progressively tailored set of  therapeutic exercises and stretches designed to re-train the muscles, restore body function and mobility.

I’ve been able to get my life back thanks to the therapists at Structura. Taylor and Skye were amazing at listening and critically thinking. They were both very professional. I had dealt with 1.5 years of debilitating pain in my lower back and shooting pain down my legs. After physical therapy, multiple steroid shots, and mediations to deal with the pain I heard about Structura. Thanks to these amazing people I can sleep through the night, enjoy activities I love, and play with my kids. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing more than a relaxing massage.

Susan from Neveda Testimonial

I was in a car accident and hurt my neck and low back. I came into Structura Body Therapies and they helped me get rid of the pain I was having. I would recommend to anyone that has been in an accident to come in and get some bodywork done from Structura!

Pamela from Utah Testimonial

I was afraid to try Structura because I heard the therapy might be painful. But it was going into months and months with plantar fasciitis and not being able to walk without limping and waddling. That was painful too. Through the therapy sessions, I found that I was twisted and seized up all over. I’m not sure when the fasciitis actually completely healed, but it did 100%. The therapy was a little painful, but nothing like the pain of months of fasciitis and years of waddling. At 58 years old, I can finally move my legs again so I can walk normally and start exercising.

Kaylee from North Ogden, UT Testimonial

I was experiencing a lot of knee pain after having surgery for a torn ACL. Months of physical therapy and a 2nd knee surgery didn’t help the pain and issues I was having. I was ready to just live with the pain but I decided to give Structura’s therapy a try. It has helped my knee tremendously! My knee pain is gone and my range of motion is back! So happy I found this therapy! If you are experiencing pain that your doctors can’t figure out, I would highly recommend Structura’s therapy!

J. Sanchez from Clearfield, UT Testimonial

I was introduced to Structura Body Therapies by a family member.  I have suffered from chronic pain for the past 9 years and the source of the pain was finally diagnosed. I started coming to Structura to see how their therapies could help me before, between, and after the two hip surgeries I would need to correct the source of my pain. I cannot express enough how pleased I am with the results of the therapy thus far!  I recently had the first surgery and the therapies from Structura Body Therapies have cut my healing time by 4 weeks! I am looking very forward to completing my next surgery and then starting the Structural Integration program with Structura.

Lisa from Layton, UT Testimonial

I felt so good after each of the 10 sessions of Structural Integration. Parts of my body that bothered me before the session felt so much better after being worked on. My knees that hurt before, didn’t bother me after being worked on.

Jessica from Ogden, UT Testimonial

Structura has truly helped me so much! It was a long road to recovery, but I skipped the surgeries and was able to naturally heal over time. I continue to go on a regular basis for maintenance now. This is an amazing way to stay in top performance and learn about mobility and movement.

Kellie from Hooper, UT Testimonial

I am running again! Less than a year ago, I had a doctor, physical therapist, and a chiropractor all tell me I needed to stop running because of constant back and neck pain, along with ankle and groin injuries. Well, they were wrong! Because of Stuctura Body Therapies, in the last 2 months, I have ran a half marathon, a 5K, and I am continuing to run 3 times a week. The 10-week Structural Integration program, and continued maintenance, have been a true blessing for me. The therapists and staff at Structura are the best, and are professional and caring. So grateful to have found this amazing technique.
