How To Stop Chronic, Daily Annoying Knee Pain WITHOUT Injections, WITHOUT Taking Painkillers and WITHOUT Having To Wear A Support or Brace…
If you’re living with bad knees, they’re painful or they ache – it’s very easy to think that it’s “just somethingthat comes with age”, it’s a bit of “wear and tear”, or that it’s nothing and it’ll go away on its own.
You can’t quite point your finger on why you’re feeling pain in your knees – but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better!
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 Thorpes Physiotherapy clinics in Sandhurst, Yateley and Fleet
And when it comes to living with Knee Pain, everybody we see wants to know the answers to these questions:
Why is This Happening to Me?”…
“Why am I still suffering with knee pain after putting up with it for 3-6 months – sometimes more?”…
Most people think that when they get knee pain, the pain is going to go away on its own. That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened… But then 3-6 months later you’re still living with nagging pain even worse than it was when it came on.
Does That Sound Like You?
Another scenario we see all the time in our Physio Clinic is when people go to the Doctors, and the Doctor tells them to rest and “try these painkillers” and “see how it goes”. But this is rarely ever the best advice and often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it hasn’t got any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, and maybe a knee support.
Has This Type Of Thing 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’s very confusing to know exactly what to do – and that’s just to avoid making knee pain worse!
And because of this confusion – this often leads people to procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help fix their knee pain. Worse, many people just end up accepting it as “part of life”- as if it’s normal, as if it “has” to be that way.
Do You Feel That Way Too?
1. You thought it would go away on it’s own – but it didn’t
2. You went to the Doctor who told you to rest and take painkillers – but the pills did nothing to help, allthey did was ‘mask’ the pain – and as soon as they wore off knee pain stopped you in your tracks again
3. You tried other Healthcare Professionals, or a Physio in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
4. You’ve tried using things like knee supports but they’ve done nothing to help make the pain any better
5. You thought it would be a good idea to rest because you experienced severe pain and swelling in yourknees, but it still irritates you daily
6. You tried a few exercises from ‘Youtube’ – but they felt painful when you did them, and did nothing to ease the pain.
If any of these have happened to you – we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physios at our Sandhurst, Yateley or Fleet Physiotherapy 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 – you are closer to finding the thing that does!

The phone call is complimentary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best.
“What Can I Do To Get Rid Of MY Knee Pain?”…
Well, here are 4 things you can do:
1.First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people rest for weeks, hoping that the pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 3-6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed… Or the pain and swelling gets worse
2. Next, do the RIGHT exercises – one of the best things to help you ease your Knee pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises – the right exercises given to you by a Physiotherapist will help reduce pain, and allow you to move freely again – and make sure that the problems don’t come back any time soon.
3. 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.
4. Get real, “hands-on” Physio – Physio is proven to help people with Knee pain. In fact at Thorpes Physiotherapy it’s one of the most common issues we see people aged 45+ living with. If your Knee pain is affecting your job, your ability to keep active, if it threatens your independence or gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends – Physio can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.
