There are many causes of knee pain and your treatment at our office in Richland will be determined based upon the source of the discomfort. Knee osteoarthritis is a common cause of knee pain. It is a painful disease of the knee joint, in which both the bone and the elastic part of the joint called cartilage may break down. Nearly 16-20 million Americans have osteoarthritis with people over age 65 making up half that number. Older women and African-American women are more likely than men to have OA of the knee. There are many risk factors and causes of knee OA. Aging is a contributing factor and so is excess weight and infections or diseases that affect knee joints. The symptoms of knee OA include knee pain while walking or running. You may also notice stiffness, especially early in the morning, swelling of the joint, and weakness. You may even hear a grinding sound when you bend your knee. Tests of the blood and fluid around the knees may be done to look for signs of inflammation. X-rays are used to show how far the disease has progressed.

Treatment for knee pain in Richland starts with a thorough examination of your knee joint to determine the cause of your discomfort. Once a diagnosis has been made, we always offer non-invasive approaches, such as physical therapy, before recommending surgical options. Our highly skilled team of physical therapists will work with you one-to-one to create a personalized rehabilitation program. Our goals are to relieve your pain and get you fully functioning as soon as possible. Give us a call today to set up an appointment and take the first step to treat your knee pain.

Two of the most prevalent types of arthritis we treat at 99354 physical therapy are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The common arthritis symptoms of pain and stiffness are usually caused by degenerative joint arthritis (osteoarthritis) while rheumatoid arthritis is a progressive disease with symptoms of tender, stiff, and swollen joints. RA often starts in smaller joints, like fingers, and gradually progresses to larger joint structures. Patients suffering from arthritis can benefit from many aspects of physical therapy. Our expert chiropractors will treat your arthritis pain in Dayton and assist you with improved joint function, increased muscle strength, and improved fitness level. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints, affecting approximately 27 million Americans. It is a condition we have vast experience treating. OA can affect any joint, but it occurs most often in knees, hips, lower back and neck, small joints of the fingers and the bases of the thumb and big toe. In healthy joints, a firm, rubbery material called cartilage covers the end of each bone. This cartilage allows the joint to smoothly glide during movement and acts as a cushion between the bones. In OA, the cartilage breaks down, causing pain, swelling and problems moving the joint. As OA worsens over time, bones may break down and develop growths called bone spurs.

The physical therapists in 99354 offer many treatment options to address the joint stiffness and pain often associated with arthritis. Manual physical therapy and stretching exercises promote improved joint range of motion and help reduce inflammation. When physical therapy is no longer needed to address your acute condition, our community classes are a fun way to continue the healing while enjoying social interaction. And our unique aquatic therapy provides joint-related treatment in a warm, safe, buoyant, and pleasant environment. So if you want to work with professionals who care about your health and well-being, give us a call today.

We offer a wide variety of physical therapy services. Research shows that exercise and physical therapy play a key role in treating and preventing recurring pain. Manual physical therapy is a relatively new and comprehensive therapy approach that includes assessment, treatment, and prevention. Proper treatment promotes strength, flexibility, and endurance—the three keys to sustained well-being. We believe that exercise and/or manual and movement therapy should be a part of every patient’s treatment. One of the many innovative treatment options offered by our Richland physical therapists is Graston Technique®. This technique an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to detect and effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, as well as maintain optimal range of motion.

GT enables physical therapists and other clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions and maintain optimal range of motion in their patients through comprehensive training and education. At Oasis Physical Therapy, our experience proves faster, more complete recovery and pain reduction with this unique approach.
