"8 Simple Ways to Stop Knee Pain Without Injections, Pain Medication, or Having to Wear a Support"
When you have knee pain, stiffness or aches, it's easy to think that it's ”no big deal” and that it will go away on its own… eventually. You might just think that it’s a normal pain that comes with age. But now it is threatening your ability to do something you love or need to be able to do.
A lot of times the pain isn’t caused by anything obvious. But now, it doesn’t seem to be going away, and is getting worse!
If this is happening to you, you're not alone: we hear this type of thing all the time. We see so many people who are dealing with a variety of knee issues.
So when it comes to suffering from knee pain, everybody we see wants to know:
“Why Am I Hurting?”
“Why has nothing worked?”
“Why isn’t my Knee pain getting any better?”
Most people think that knee pain will just go away on its own. That they'll wake up one day and the pain will magically go away as if it never happened. But six weeks later, they're still having pain and not only that, it has become worse.
Does That Sound Like You?
Another scenario that we see here at our office is that people go to their doctors, and the doctors tell them to rest, take medications and “see how it goes”.
Unfortunately this is rarely the best advice. A lot of times, you end up going back to the doctor again because the pain hasn’t changed. Worse of all, you are given more medications, stronger pills and advised to get more rest. Or you’re told by your doctor to see a specialist whose advice is a shot or to have surgery. This explains why so many people are living with chronic knee pain.
Has This Happened to You?
Why does knee pain last longer than it should? It's easy to get confused because you've been told so many different things by different people. There are lots of people out there who are happy to give you advice, but not all of the things you hear are reliable.
Your knee pain might have been caused by something like an awkward angle around the knee when you squat or lift. but it could have been caused by other things that were never properly taken care of (poor posture, alignment issues, weakness and muscle imbalance) .These things along with that time you lifted or squatted awkwardly, eventually caused that pain you're now experiencing.
If you don't know what you're doing, or you have received poor advice, knee pain can be very confusing. Because of that many people end up accepting that pain is just part of their life.

“The atmosphere at Simply Physio has been one of the things I love the most. It's really one-on-one with your therapist, really dialing in to looking at where your trigger points are and your pain or whatever you are dealing with . . . One thing I really enjoyed, being a 43 active person, is just putting work in... coming in and putting work in everyday was good.”

“I had an MRI and went to an orthopedic surgeon who wanted to do ACL reconstruction on that knee. I really didn’t want to have surgery so I backed off on everything - stopped exercising, barely walked. Since working with Simply Physio, I have been able to take stairs at work without pain, been able to take stairs at home without holding both sides to get down and we are planning a hike this week!.”

“When I did walk, my wife said I looked like I was 80 years old when I’d get out of a chair, it’d take me a while to start moving, but I’m not like that anymore. A lot of it is what they’ve done for me here at simply physio but also the exercises that they’ve given me to do that I do pretty much on a regular basis.”
