Knee Physical Therapy

An auto accident injury can be a scary experience, especially when you don′t know what to expect next. We′re here to address your questions about various types of injury treatment, so you know what to expect when you come into the office.

 

At Sall Myers, our bilingual staff is equipped to handle many different types of accident injuries. Our nine New Jersey offices are located in Elmwood Park, NJ, Paterson NJPassaic, NJ, New Brunswick, NJ, Irvington NJ, Union City, NJ, Rochelle Park, NJ, Parsippany, NJ, and Union, NJ.

Why would I need knee physical therapy?

Knee physical therapy can help restore strength and pain-free motion to the area after surgery or a car accident knee injury. At Sall Myers, our physical therapists are involved in all stages of knee injury recovery. This can also be an ideal treatment option for those suffering from ongoing knee pain, but who have never had knee surgery.

 

What should I expect from knee physical therapy?

At physical therapy, you can expect any or all of the following:

  • Stretches

  • Strengthening exercises

  • Alternating ice and heat

  • Ultrasound

  • Electrical stimulation

 

All activities are performed under close supervision of a licensed physical therapist. In addition, you may be given daily knee stretches or exercises to perform at home.

 

How often will I need to attend knee physical therapy?

The frequency and length of your physical therapy visits depends on how severe your injury and pain are, and if you had surgery. In the case of moderate knee pain, you may only need to attend once or twice while continuing to practice your knee exercises at home. For more serious injuries, you may need to attend physical therapy sessions up to three times a week for six or more weeks.

Will I need a knee brace or walking aid while attending physical therapy?

This will also depend on the severity of your injury and pain. For ongoing moderate pain, you may just need to adjust your lifestyle choices to put less stress on the affected knee. If you’re experiencing swelling, you may need to wear a knee brace. For severe pain or post-surgery, you may have to use crutches or a cane. Our physical therapists will help you learn to properly use your new supportive aid, and ensure you choose one that is an appropriate size for your frame.
