Benefits of Physiotherapy for Clients With Hip and Knee Pain

Physiotherapy is among the most effective methods of reducing knee or hip pain and can be the primary treatment option or combined with additional remedies, such as assistive devices. Aiding the full recovery of a painful knee or hip is the main benefit of physiotherapy, though it’s not the only one.

  • Treating hip or knee pain through physiotherapy can help you return to your normal routine at a pace that’s right for you. As your therapist continuously assesses your progress, you’ll begin to reintroduce activities without causing further damage to your hip or knee.
  • Depending on the cause of your pain, building up strength and flexibility in your hip or knee throughout your physiotherapy sessions will lower your risk of suffering from similar aches and discomfort moving forward. You’ll also become more aware of how you can avoid repeated damage or injuries.
  • Physiotherapy is a medication-free form of treatment, which is a significant draw for clients who seek practical therapy and prefer to veer away from medicines. It also ensures that painkillers don’t temporarily mask the pain, which can be confused for healing.
