Do you Have Knee Pain?
Do you suffer from knee pain? Is it just starting to hurt or has it been bothering you for awhile? Maybe it swollen & flared-up worse than usual or you’re considering surgery? Perhaps you have scar tissue and limited range of motion after an operation?
Massage Therapy Can Help!
Knee pain can be frustrating! At Boulder Therapeutics, we understand how physically and mentally challenging this condition can be…and we’re here to help! Our massage therapists are skilled in injury rehab, sports massage, scar tissue release and pain relief. We work pre or post-surgically.
Causes of Knee Pain
Knee pain can be caused by many things. Maybe your knee pain is caused by tight muscles or tendons in your leg, hip or lower back. Or your IT band could be very tight causing a patellar tracking problem. You may have scar tissue inside the joint causing friction and a wearing down of the muscles, tendons and bones. You may even have damage to one of the ligaments of your knee (MCL, LCL, ACL, PCL), the meniscus or cartilage. And while we’ll do our best to help you avoid it, surgery may be necessary.
Why Choose Boulder Therapeutics?
We can help you! Our therapeutic treatments can help open your knee joint and free-up friction patterns affecting this damage. This may give your knee the time it needs to heal properly. We’ll review your posture and help assess the actual cause of your pain because it’s likely that your knee pain has been slowly building over time. We will also explain when to use ice or heat and will provide stretches & recommendations to help get you feeling better.
Our trained therapists will provide the right treatment for you. We’ll look at how your patella (knee cap) is moving and will check your muscles for imbalances. Then we’ll apply techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, a series of muscle energy techniques, scar tissue release or active stretching & release.
In addition to working with many local athletes & professional sports teams since 1999, the staff at Boulder Therapeutics works in conjunction with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists and other health care professionals to provide our clients with the highest level of care possible. We have treated everything from pulled muscles, whiplash and joint pain to scoliosis, carpal tunnel syndrome and severe nerve pain.
