"How To Stop Chronic, Daily, Annoying Knee Pain WITHOUT Injections, Taking Painkillers, Or Having To Wear A Support Or Brace..."

Don’t give up your desired lifestyle because of problems that can be fixed. That is why we created this specifically for you.

A Message From Philip Boozer, MS, ATC, C-PS Owner and Founder of Return2Play

If you have bad knees that hurt or ache, it’s easy to believe that it’s “just something that comes with age,” “wear and tear,” or that it’s nothing and will go away on its own.

You’re not sure what’s causing the pain in your knees, but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better!

If this is happening to you, you are not alone; we hear stories like this all the time. Knee pain is, in fact, one of the most common issues we see in our physical therapy clinic.

And when it comes to living with knee pain, everyone we see wants to know the following answers:

“How Come This Is Happening to Me?” Alternatively, “Why Am I Still Suffering From Knee Pain That Worsens After Putting up With It for 6 Months - Sometimes More?”

Most people believe that if they have knee pain, it will “ease off” and go away on its own. That they’ll wake up one day and, as if by “magic,” their knee pain will be gone. Then, 6 months later, you’re still suffering from knee pain, which is frequently worse than when it first appeared.

Does That Describe You?

Another scenario we see frequently in our physical therapy clinic is when people go to their doctors and the well-meaning doctor tells them to “rest”, “try these painkillers”, and “come back in 6 weeks if it’s not better”. But then, 6 weeks later, they return to the same Doctor because it hasn’t improved, only to be given ANOTHER prescription for even stronger pills and possibly a knee brace.

Have You Ever Experienced That?

Perhaps you are puzzled because different people have told you different things. Perhaps you believe you must rest because you’ve been informed that walking aggravates knee discomfort or that ‘this exercise’ and ‘that exercise’ will help.

It is difficult to know exactly what to do – and that’s only to prevent knee discomfort from worsening!

And because of this misunderstanding, individuals frequently procrastinate and delay making a decision about how to treat their knee discomfort. Worse, many individuals simply accept it as a “part of life” as if it is normal or “had to be” that way.

Do You Feel the Same Way?

If You Have Knee Pain Right Now, Here Are Seven More Reasons Why It Might Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

1. You believed it would disappear on its own, but it didn’t.

2. You went to the doctor, who advised you to rest and take painkillers; but, the drugs did little to alleviate the pain; instead, they merely “masked” it; and as soon as the medications wore off, knee discomfort halted you in your tracks once more.

3. A relative or close acquaintance informed you that knee discomfort is inevitable as you age, so you simply accepted it.

4. You have previously sought assistance from other Healthcare Professionals or a Physio, but nothing they said or did help.

5. You’ve tried knee supports and other pain-relieving devices, but they’ve had little effect.

6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your knees were in excruciating pain and swelling, but they continue to bug you every day.

7. You tried a couple of workouts from YouTube, but they were uncomfortable and did little to alleviate your pain.

If you have experienced any of the above, we invite you to schedule a call with one of our Physical Therapists in Modesto, California to find out what may be done to help you.

The fact that you have done any or all of these things is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work, you are one step closer to discovering what does!

"What Can I Do to Quickly Relieve My Knee Pain?"

Here are four things you can do:

1. First and foremost, you must decide to obtain help – So many people rest for weeks, believing that the pain will “go away with time,” but six months later, they’re still suffering and nothing has changed… Or the pain and swelling become more severe

2. Next, perform the RIGHT exercises – One of the best ways to alleviate knee pain is to perform the right series of progressed exercises – the right exercises given to you by a Physiotherapist will help reduce pain, allow you to move freely again quickly, and prevent the problems from reoccurring in the near future.

3. Avoid sitting in uncomfortable situations, as you and I were not created to sit. When you sit and bend your knees, you place your knees in strange, unnatural positions – positions that knees are not designed to be in for extended periods of time. To make you active and healthy as early as possible, it would be of great assistance if you were provided with proper strengthening exercises for improved posture, in addition to manual therapy.

4. Realistic, “hands-on” Physical Therapy – Physical therapy has been shown to aid individuals with knee discomfort. In fact, it is one of the most common issues we find among our athletes and active people at Ready2Play. If knee discomfort is interfering with your employment, preventing you from staying active, threatening your independence, or preventing you from spending quality time with family and friends, Physical Therapy can help you return to the life you deserve as soon as possible.

“About 6 years ago, I totally messed up my shoulder and dealt with constant pain for the last 6 years. Felt like I’ve tried absolutely everything and just couldn’t find any relief. I signed up for a mobility class at my gym and that’s where I was introduced to Return2Play. After participating in about 2 classes, I really enjoyed it and felt relief for the areas of focus. I’ve now been participating in physical therapy for a few weeks and the amount of relief I am FINALLY feeling in my shoulder was shocking. Pain level went from a constant 10 to 4 in my first 2 visits. I’m really excited to see where I am once I reach the end of my sessions. I didn’t think finding relief was an option, so really glad I made the decision to work with Return2Play 🙌🏼”

“After a car accident, I lost mobility and began to experience a lot of lower back and neck pain during my training. The pain got so severe that I was no longer able to train in the gym. I found out about Return2Play and booked my appointment in hopes that it could help. Two sessions were all it took for me to be back in the gym – absolutely pain free! Since working with Return2Play I’ve felt amazing doing day-to-day tasks and training. I’d highly recommend Return2Play as Phillip takes his time to diagnose exactly what your issue is and works his magic to make sure you are not only healed, but also takes his time to educate you on how you can prevent this pain from reoccurring.”
