Knee pain can be difficult to navigate, but 5 Star Clinic LTD in Preston, Lancashire, offers a comprehensive treatment program to help patients manage their symptoms and live happier lives. From physical therapy and lifestyle changes to advanced treatments such as regenerative medicine or knee surgery, the clinic has the expertise needed to get you back on your feet.
The first step at 5 Star Clinic is an appointment with one of their experienced physical therapists.. During your consultation, they will review your medical history and perform a physical examination to understand the cause of your knee pain. Common causes include injury or arthritis, but other conditions may also contribute. After determining the cause of your discomfort, the therapist will discuss treatment options that best fit you and create an individualized plan for care tailored specifically for you.
Physical therapy is often recommended as part of a knee pain treatment program at 5 Star Clinic Ltd in Preston, Lancashire. The goal is to increase strength and flexibility in muscles around the joint while decreasing inflammation and improving overall functioning. Rehabilitative activities such as range-of-motion exercises focus on stretching out tight muscle groups while strengthening weak ones around the joint capsule so that it can better absorb shock during activity when carrying weight on it or bending down onto it etc.
Additionally, balance-based training helps prevent future injuries by improving coordination between key stabilizing muscles so they better support gait stability without strain over time or after injury—a major benefit if arthritis has caused progressive weakening of joints over years which further takes away from natural postural ability/stability when walking/running, etc.
On top of that many more options are offered at 5 Star Clinic LTD in Preston, such as acupuncture, manual adjustments, Low laser therapy, micro currents and many more to help reduce pain, stiffness, and inflammation in the knee joint helping the healing process whilst improving the strength and functionality of it.
This above procedure helps to fight the ageing processes associated with wear & tear joint problems like OA (Osteoarthritis), which can worsen activity levels over time if not addressed quickly enough…greatly diminishing the quality of life & causing an increased risk for greater complications due to limited mobility!
Last but not least, these therapies may provide significant relief without needing invasive procedures like arthroscopic surgery, where endoscopic cameras are inserted into arthritic knees via incision sites providing surgeons good visualization -allowing them to see the damage up close (in order) to make repairs as best they can; however, these surgeries don’t always produce long-lasting results depending on the extent of damage present beforehand…but using this method along with any other noninvasive treatments available could still provide much-needed relief instead going under the knife if deemed too risky given certain circumstances!
To complement physical therapies prescribed at 5 Star Clinic LTD in Preston Lancashire, lifestyle modifications are also encouraged, such as keeping off extra weight wherever possible – this reduces the stress placed upon already weakened cartilage surfaces leading to potentially exacerbating flare-ups & worsening symptoms over time; avoiding high impact activities where possible – running and any other activities requiring repetitive motions with loading effect on the knee joint should be done using a smart protocol of progressive load, integrated with a program of strength and conditioning.
Also, wearing properly fitting, supportive shoes when engaging in any kind of exercise routine ensures optimal support against naturally occurring forces received throughout movements done regularly (for ex: power walking).
Finally, taking basic NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) during acute flares ups might be useful short-term, though only after consulting primary care physician about risks vs. benefits related to consumption, particularly those suffering from GI issues which could become exacerbated if taken improperly depending on the patient’s overall health condition(s).
