A Personal Message from Knee Pain Physical Therapist, Kim Gladfelter

Hello and Welcome...

  • Are you worried about knee pain that isn’t going away on its own, no matter how much 'rest' you've been told to get?
  • Do you suffer from sharp knee pain or stiffness every time you try to get out of a chair, or go up or down a flight of stairs?
  • Do you feel like you are slowing down and don't want to miss out on activities with friends or family because of knee pain?
  • Is knee pain stopping you from exercising even though you want to lose weight, and you feel stuck because you can't exercise without pain?
  • Do you want nothing more than to just get back to living your normal active lifestyle?

If that's happening to you, you're not alone. We hear this type of thing all the time! In fact, Knee Pain is one of the most common problems that we see in our physical therapy clinic in Los Altos, CA.

And when it comes to living with Knee Pain, everybody we see wants to know the answers to these simple questions...

Why Is This Happening To Me?
"Why Am I Still Suffering With Knee Pain After Putting Up With It for 6 Months (Or Maybe More)?

Most people think that when you get Knee Pain, it's just going to go away on its own.

That you'll wake up one morning and like "magic", it'll be as if Knee Pain never happened. But then 6 months later, you're still living with Knee Pain - often even worse than it was when it started.

Does That Sound Like You?

Another scenario we see all the time in our physical therapy clinic is when people are told to rest, ”try medications”, or told they need to "get an MRI.”

But this is rarely ever the best advice and often 6 weeks later, their Knee Pain hasn't gotten any better. They may have been told of some scary findings (which may in return actually be NORMAL findings).

Worse, they're often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, and advised MORE rest or an injection as their only options. This explains why so many people are continuing to suffer from chronic Knee Pain.

Has This Ever Happened To You?

Maybe you are confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. Maybe you think you have to rest because you’ve been told walking makes knee pain worse, or that you should be doing ‘this exercise’ and ‘that exercise’ to make it better.

It can very confusing to know exactly what to do first when you have so many options.  And when faced with uncertainty of what will work, you will do what most people do… Which is do nothing!  And that’s just to avoid making your knee pain worse!

And because of this confusion, people tend to procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help fix their knee pain.  This happens because they fear making the wrong decision (perhaps again).  And what is even worse is that many people just end up just accepting it as “part of life."  It is not normal and does not have to be that way.

Is This How You Feel Too?

If You're Currently Living With Knee Pain,
Here's 7 More Reasons Why It Could Be
Lasting Longer Than It Should:

  • You thought it would go away on it's own - but it didn't
  • You were told to take pain pills (which we know are addicting and dangerous). All they did was 'mask' the pain - and as soon as they wore off knee pain stopped you in your tracks again
  • You were told that everybody gets knee pain as they get older, so you just accepted it
  • You have sought help from other healthcare professionals or a physical therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
  • You tried a knee brace but it's done nothing to help make the pain any better
  • You thought it would be a good idea to rest because you experienced severe pain and swelling in your knees, but it sill irritates you daily with even small things around the house or at work
  • You have tried a few exercises from YouTube or Google, and they felt painful when you did them, and did nothing to really ease the pain

If any of these have happened to you, then we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physical therapy experts at our clinic to find out what can be done to help you.

The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work and you are closer to finding what does work!

Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best solution to end the limitations due to knee pain.

"What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Knee Pain Quickly?"

Well, here's 4 things you can do...

  • First, make a decision about getting help. So many people procrastinate for so long, thinking that Knee Pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed… or it gets worse.
  • Next, do the RIGHT exercises. One of the best things to help you ease your Knee Pain is to do the right series of guided exercises - the right exercises given to you by a physical therapist will help reduce pain, and allow you to move freely again quick - and make sure that the problems don’t come back anytime soon (or aggravate your knee even more like some exercises do).
  • Avoid sitting in awkward positions - the truth is, you and I were not designed to sit. When you sit and bend your knees, you’re putting your knees in awkward, unnatural positions - which knees aren’t built to be in for too long. It would really help if you were given appropriate strengthening exercises for better posture, alongside hands-on treatment, to get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.
  • Get real, “hands-on” Physical Therapy. PT is proven to help people with Knee pain. In fact, at PhysioFit it’s one of the most common issues we see people aged 40+ living with. If your Knee pain is affecting your job, if it stops you from keeping active, or if it threatens your independence and gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends - Physical Therapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.

“Hear From PhysioFit Clients Who Are Feeling More ACTIVE,
And HAPPY…In Just A Few Short Weeks”!

"I had a total knee replacement in October 2015. I was referred to physical therapy by my orthopedic surgeon at Stanford. I searched Yelp reviews to find the best physical therapy clinic in the Los Altos area. I was amazed by the ratings and reviews left by PhysioFit patients. The near 5-star ratings and glowing reviews were almost too good to be true, but I quickly learned that they were absolutely spot on. The therapists and staff at PhysioFit are absolutely fabulous: friendly, helpful, supportive and knowledgeable. I’ve been working with my therapist, Mika, for more than 6 months to rehab my knee. She has done a fantastic job rehabbing my knee, and is the most supportive and caring medical professional that I know. I can walk up and down stairs, ride a bike, and exercise for 40 minutes on an elliptical—all things I couldn’t do for the last three years. The road to recovery has been a long one, and I couldn’t have done it without the staff at PhysioFit. I would give Mike and PhysioFit my highest recommendation. If I ever need physical therapy again, I’ll be back at PhysioFit in a heartbeat!"

"As soon as my MD told me that I would benefit from getting physical therapy for my injury and because I knew of PhysioFit from past experiences I quickly made arrangements and began my program. Within a very short period of time I was feeling so much better as I expected that I would. All of the staff was most kind and professional and always made me feel comfortable. Without a doubt I would tell all of my friends about PhysioFit. Kim runs a wonderful program. Her staff seem happy and in turn make us all happy. Bravo!"
