Written By Advanced Health, PA on December 17, 2018
Whether you have chronic knee pain or have had knee surgery, physical rehabilitation is an important step in knee pain treatment. Don't just think about getting physical rehab after surgery, however. Rehab is essential prior to surgery as well!
What Physical Rehabilitation Can Do for Knee Pain
Knee pain is nothing to mess around with. Knees help keep you standing and moving. Your doctor may recommend surgery, but it's important to also consider Physical Therapy. Both before and after surgery, physical rehab can help with many things:
Build joint and muscle strength
Reduce pain and inflammation
Help restore normal movement of knee
Assist in improving circulation to promote healing and avoid blood clots
While rehab prior to surgery promotes healing often without surgery. Rehab after surgery helps keep recovery stay on track.

The Advanced Health PA Difference in Knee Pain Treatment
There are many methods of physical rehabilitation for knee pain and surgery. Patients with chronic problems know that not all methods or therapists are equal in terms of pain relief and function restoration. Your knee pain may be due to a sports injury, and your desire is to get conditioned for a sport or activity. You will want something other than standard physical therapy, if this is the case.
At Advanced Health PA, we specialize in knee pain and knee physical rehab. We utilize Sports Medicine electronic stimulus machines. It is designed to relieve pain, inflammation and muscle spasm. Dr. Hebeisen, a certified massage therapist and personal trainer, will massage and perform specific movements with joints and muscles.
Progressive exercises done in the clinic and home are often used. This includes non-weight and also weight bearing exercises and resistance tubing. The exercise bicycle and traditional weights come later. Advanced Health has a variety of exercise equipment and more importantly the skill and experience in how to use them.
Natural pain killers and anti inflammatory products have been proven over 30 years. These are an alternative to addictive and harmful Opiods, prescription and non-prescription drugs.
Chiropractic is not only good for the spine but any joints or muscles. Chiropractic helps with pain throughout the body. Dr. Hebeisen has made many Twin Cities' "Best Doctors Lists", and was also nominated as one of the "Best Minnesota Chiropractors". Through sports and personal injury, our clinic has worked with thousands of surgical and non surgical cases.
